Throwback Thursday: Felicity and the ’90s Winter Hat Collection

2 Jan

It’s pretty chilly right now and a good winter hat is essential, today we’re going to turn to Felicity for some headwear inspiration. Over at This Was TV we’ve been discussing the season 1 episode “Gimme an O!” and as it is January in New York there’s a variety of winter attire. There are so many pieces of amazing knitwear on Felicity including all the big jumpers you could possibly desire that if this cold spell continues we will be back with some sweater suggestions.

Now to hats from the late ’90s.

Felicity 1.11 wooly hatThe cable knit beanie doesn’t really age and a cursory look online to see if there was something similar gave multiple suggestions with pretty much every major online store offering something; from the affordable at ASOS to the splurge end of the scale with Johnstons of Elgin. It’s a timeless look and one that works with both long a short hair and Keri Russell looks super cute in this scene as she returns to college after the winter break. The oversized belted grey cardigan is a nice touch and this outfit is totally on point.

Felicity 1.11 green knitWhen you live somewhere with a cold climate it’s good to have a variety of hat options and later in this episode Felicity switches her grey beanie for a green knitted brimmed one. Earth tones are the standard Felicity colors as they emphasize the sweet and warm aspects of her character. While this isn’t as timeless as the cable knit, it also wouldn’t look like you are heading to a ’90s revival party if you were to wear it today.

Felicity 1.11 velvet hatThe same can’t be said for Julie’s velvet affair which is only missing a flower from the Blossom collection. It works for this character and velvet is hard material to pull off, the less said about the thing Julie wearing around her neck the better as it looks like someone has sheared a character from Fraggle Rock.

Felicity 1.11 Elena hatElena’s hat is pulling off wool brimmed chic and while it’s from the same family as this dreaded Joey Potter hat, the difference is Joey’s is attempting a summer/winter hybrid (and failing) whereas Elena’s goes all in on the cold season. The flashes of red with the gloves and scarf really offset the grey tones of her coat and hat.

The hats of Felicity match the characters wearing them; Elena is confident, even when she isn’t and so is her clashing patterns wardrobe  (Elena does end up wearing a headband as a skirt which she totally pulls off in this episode) Felicity is safe/warm and Julie is funkier and more out there.
