After Eight

Add a touch of sparkle to your winter wardrobe with this delightful hat. Eye-catching beads twinkle from the figure of eight lace pattern as it dances towards the beautifully shaped crown. This hat comes in two sizes and is designed to be close fitting so you can channel your inner disco-dancing queen. If you prefer your hat to be slightly slouchier you can easily add an extra lace repeat.

Pair subtle beads with a pared-back neutral for a stylish look or opt for bright and bold combinations to brighten up those dreary winter days.
