This looks like a thick beanie in the picture, but is on the thin side. It will be perfect for a fall afternoon, but not anything colder. It is soft and has plenty of room to tuck long hair into, or leave floppy in the back. The faux buttons on the side add a nice feminine touch, but will make folding it up a little difficult if you wanted it to be more fitting on your head.
I recieved this hat from my lady friend for Christmas (I have been asking for a sweet hat for like a year!) It was a really good deal for the price, alot of similar hats are more expensive and don't have all the cute details this one has. I have already gotten so many compliments on mine (the purple is really pretty.) The only thing I would change would be be adding a bit more stretch to the band, sometimes it slips down a bit.
"as a skiier, i love quality and for all my stuff to match. adorable hat, great colors, nice fit."
got a new jacket- had to order another one of these in another color. adorable. maybe not the warmest for hard core winter weather, but great for those milder days on the slopes. loves the details. now, just have to keep it from my daughter. maybe i should just order us both one. hmmmmmmmmm........ that would work, get 2 cute new colors.
