Years of watching TLC’s What Not to Wear has taught me that there always comes a point in one’s life when you suddenly become too old to wear whatever you want.
Luckily for many of us, that point of no return is still a long ways away from ruining our style-seeking eye. Now let us indulge in all of the cute, quirky and edgy fashions our hearts desire before we all start looking like Madonna.
This week, let’s take some inspiration from the Fanning sisters’ choice in cute cat hats during their holiday visit to Seoul, South Korea. It wasn’t just Hello Kitty’s cute face that caught my eye — it was the cute little ears sitting on top of both Elle and Dakota Fanning’s heads.
This isn’t the first time animal ears have caught the fashion world’s attention. Here’s a quick primer on just some other fashionable animal headgear from the past and present.
Animal Hats with Paws
Endless hours of entertainment.
While I’m confused to what kind of animal this hat is supposed to portray (bunny? Aardvark? Cartoon?), we have former Teen Vogue beauty editor Eva Chen to praise for bringing it to our attention. The cute headwarmer looks great with or without the studs.
Louis Vuitton Bunny Ears (2009)
Looking for a little fun to brighten up any dull day? Tie a stiff piece of fabric to a hair band to wrap around your next high bun for a hopping good time.
Maison Michel Lace Bunny and Mouse Ears (2009)
These lace ears are perfect for anyone looking for a more dramatic look. It’s also makes for a fun, easy DIY project. Shape two pieces of wire into your desired ears, cover them in lace and attach to a headband.
Josie and the Pussycats Ears (2001)
So this entry is partly here because the movie was on TV the other night and partly because the comics were pretty awesome. Leopard ears are not just for slutty Halloween nights — they also happen to be the perfect rockstar accessory.
