Fashion Math: Is This Club Monaco Fur Trapper Hat Worth Nearly $300?
November 10, 2010
Let’s talk investments. Every year, as much as you want to deny it, it happens: it gets cold. Instead of being surprised each time, and buying a new hat each year, get one that actually stands the test of time. In my experience, the same old knit back hat I buy every year is a terrible investment: I lose it when it gets dark out, and it’s not even that warm. This Club Monaco Drew Fur Trapper Hat ($279), though, is serious. Between the soft fur, the ear flaps, and thick lining, I’m sweating just looking at it.
But when that first snowfall hits, you won’t regret dishing out the dollars for this hat. The real question – is the fur worth the funds? SHEFinds breaks it down…
If you wear this hat 3-4 times a week until February – it equals less than the salad you’re about to buy for lunch. But feel free to wear it next year and the year after. You can pair this hat with other faux fur accessories or just a cute winter scarf. Either way, I know where my $300 is going–how about yours?
