Winter 2011 Trend Report: Animal Hats

While in New York this month, I realized something popping up on people's heads more than usual. Typically these hats can be seen on small children- not teenagers and adults. What am I talking about? Animal hats. That's the only way I can describe them. Here's a photo of some at a vendor on a street corner in New York. I believe they were being sold for about $7 a piece.
You can also purchase them form a variety of stores such as; Urban Outfitters, Berkeley Hats, Shop Animal Hats, and I'm sure you can find many more!
