Animal Head Hats

Animal head hats - not just for babies anymore. (photo credit: Baby - stock photo. Adult - Katherine Garcia, 30, of Brooklyn, photographer Emily Berl for The New York Times)

You know those sweet little animal hats you see on babies and toddlers?  It doesn’t even have to be Halloween for you to be able to dress your sweet angel like a frog, a bear, or even a furry little mouse.  But guess what?  Ears on hats are not just for the drooly faced.  More and more we’re seeing teens, and even adults, roaming the streets like wild animals with the head gear to match.   It doesn’t even need to be cold out to see a grown person walking around with a second pair of adorable eyes staring out into the horizon from a furry winter cap.  And while the idea threatens to be incredibly lame, I have to admit that I’m kind of digging it.  And apparently, so is a wide portion of the fashion conscious population.

Of course, it’s possible there should still be an age limit on it.  While it’s clear those older than 6 can rock this look, could the over 30 crowd get away with wearing ears on their fuzzy cap?

Who should wear animal head hats?

    Cute, but I don’t think I can pull it off anymore. Anyone over the age of 14 looks idiotic.

    Heather I disagree. Just think of all the food connections you could make!

    A goat for goat cheese. A deer for venison. A squirrel … well something.

    I wear a polar bear hat and rock it like no other hat I have ever worn. I also have strawberry puff ear muffs. I think anyone can rock it as long as you feel comfortable in your own skin 🙂 of course I am also a nanny so its much easier to justify silly apparel.
