Ski headwear Fashion Police
Inspired (is that the right word?, Blog Ed) by the truly ludicrous collection of skiing outfits in a previous blog Ski Wear Fashion Police we started “researching” skiing hats. Well, when we say “researching, what we mean is wasting a bit of down-time having a laugh at some truly ridiculous ski headwear found on Google. While most folks these days have given up the woolly hat for a safer ski helmet there are still some fabulously laughable skiing hats to be found. Some of these really do not need a word of comment (but we’ll probably add one any way). And if you do spot someone wearing a bonkers-style ski hat when you’re next on the slopes, take a picture – and then tell them they should have gone to SimplyPiste. We have lots of cool looking ski helmets and also a rather lovely range of ski headwear for times when you’re not on skis but out in the cold snowy conditions Octo-hat? Fancy dress? Surely this one went down like a damp "squid"? This bright lime green woolly wonder hat was surely only a wear-once and hide in the bin idea? Well, I suppose this ski hat saves the wearer from having their hair died pink. Then again, why would anyone want to die their hair pink? Let's just settle for this being a joke hat! Could this be a Movember ski hat? Or a Mov-aclava? Indeed it could, but why the utterly un-lovely mustard colour? Maybe this skier's mum/gran/auntie only had mustard wool leftover form the 1970s. We actually like this mohican-inspired ski hat but it's still on the bonkers side of normal so we have still included it in our line-up of mad ski headwear. Take a closer look and see if you can tell what it's made of. We're wondering if it's old-style swimming hat material?! Or an ingenious crepe paper design? We've all seen plenty of these dreadlock style ski hats on the slopes - and no doubt many of us have been brave enough to buy one (this writer even owned a similar style with bells on the ends!) but surely we've all moved on in fashion terms. Haven't we?! And as if it couldn't get any worse.... This skiing pussy cat might not have a hat but it still made us laugh... He's wearing proper fur all over his body...Like an extended hat. Hmmmm. No doubt caringly handknitted by someone lovely, this Superman inspired ski hat is one to treasure... just maybe not the one to wear on your skiing holiday! And last, but by no means least, this one is for everyone who is really quite old. We loved our ski hats in the 1980s and many of us would have been proud to wear such an item. Only, these days, it's probably best if it stays in the attic!
