Winter Hat: Alicia Quan, Alicia Fashionista

I’m very thankful for the mild winters we get here in Vancouver. And though we’re able to avoid a ton of snow, we definitely endure a ton of cold, soggy days instead. My favourite defence against the West Coast winter elements is a large brimmed felt hat. It manages to keep my head warm, as well as protect my hair from the rain. An oversized winter hat is basically the perfect compromise between practical and trendy. In order to keep warm, I also pair it with essential winter accessories like a big scarf, gloves, and boots.
