I own a good dozen scarves in a variety of greys, at least five pairs of black gloves and way too many coats. But I wear the same hat every winter, the inevitable beanie from Cos. There’s nothing wrong with it, and yet I’m thinking the same thing that I think every year around this time: It’d be nice to wear something a little more interesting.
Like Charlotte’s fisherman’s cap.
Charlotte is one of the women I portray in Stilvoll and she wears a different hat in the book, a fedora (too many photos, not enough space – if I’ve learnt anything about making books, that might be it). A different look, the same effect, because a hat isn’t so much an accessory as a statement. One that reads something like this: „Dear winter, you can’t touch me and my storm-proof cap. Which, by the way, also makes getting dressed for cold weather look like a breeze.“
These five could sail straight into my wardrobe.
