SNAPS: Like Mother, Like Daughter

Sophomore broadcast journalism major, Corbin LaJeunesse, takes fashion tips from her mother, who handed down this Saks Fifth Avenue maroon pea coat from her wardrobe circa 1980.

TRIPLE THREAT: Fur for Winter

With the winter weather in full force, it seems the best way to tackle the Syracuse weather in style is with fur this year. The furry hunter hat is making as big a comeback as plaid, and it doesn’t stop there. Snow bunny earmuffs are keeping heads toasty as well. These add flair to any winter coat and are super soft- you won’t want to take it off once you’re inside!

This Kaldi Arctic hat from 66° North Iceland comes in two sizes to fit snugly to your head. They come in four colors, black, maroon, brown and off-white like this one. ($85

If you’re looking for a luxurious splurge, this Ashley Trapper Hat by Helen Kaminski cap will certainly make a statement. Made of velour fur felt and dyed shearling from Sri Lanka, its sure to keep the chill out and look fabulous. Comes in black or coffee. ($450

This intarsia bomber hat by Urban Outfitters is a similar version of the Kaldi, with a looser fit and longer flaps. The knit pattern adds a winter garnish to the hat good for style, cross country skiing or a good old fashioned snowball fight. With a price more within reach, this is a must-have. ($34.00
