Furry animal hats and hoods are everywhere. It is hard to pin point the inspiration for the animal shaped headgear, but nevertheless those pieces of furry cuteness are the way forward this winter. Started by US brand Spirit Hoods who claim you are transformed when you put it on, the hoods have been adopted by a whole range of celebrities – Justin Bieber, Kesha, Jessie J and Pink to name a few.
While you can grab yourself an original Spirit Hood, you can also go for (more wearable in my opinion) versions, which I absolutely love, as shown on the pictures above:
1. ASOS Faux Fur Bunny Ear Hat, £25
2. River Island Black Faux Fur Hat, £18
3. Sauce Mickey Ears Hat, £40
Bring out the inner animal in you!
Jacket Obsession: Designer and Bargain

I am absolutely obsessed with Rebecca Minkoff Abbey Biker Jacket (top picture). It has a great combination of textures: leather, wool and fur. And it is definitely on trend with contrasting leather sleeves!
My favourite part is how easy it is to create an outfit around it – just throw on black skinny jeans and ‘tough’ dark leather boots for an outfit with attitude. Or wear with a single colour maxi dress for an edgy feel! However you do it, it is obvious the jacket will get a few wears to justify its price tag of $998 (£635 from http://www.rebeccaminkoff.com).
But if you are looking for a bargain with similar textured features and biker feel, opt for Black Faux Fur Jacket from Diamond By Julien Macdonald for Debenhams – just £65!
