The cossack hat played its role on the silver screen this year. The movie Anna Karenina rocked the world with a movie star Keira Knightley, which worn an adorable cossack hat. It’s not a surprise that the main actress, Keira Knightley, worn exactly this hat, because Eastern European were first who started to wear this type of hats. There is severe and cold climate in Eastern Europe during winter. So they certainly know how to protect themselves against it. Why not us take the example of them? Moreover, it’s not just a practical thing. A smart hat can be the most catching detail of your style. With cossack hat you’ll look chic and stylish while staying warm and protected against frosty snow and chilly wind.

COSSACK FOR TALL AND SLIM

Flamboyant and dramatic, these hats look especially great on tall women, and can be absolutely stunning if teamed with long, tailored coats and heels. It looks like Cossack hat is made to be worn by such women as Angelina Jolie or Kate Middleton — both tall, slim women — can carry off the panache of a Cossack perfectly. Smaller women risk being dwarfed by a Cossack hat — and even a fur headband requires height to really work. But fur (usually fake) next to the face is very flattering.

Another good thing about the Cossack is that it is kind to more mature skin, softening wrinkles and bringing out the skin’s natural delicate hues and tones.

However, beware the trapper hat, which is often lined with fur and has flaps that cover the ears. Originally designed for Russian soldiers, few women manage to look genuinely stylish in them.
