DIY Veiled Beanie Supplies

step 1

Measure your veiling around your head and not your hat before cutting. I recommend putting your hat on and measuring the veil around your head, so you can mark on your hat where you want to sew.

You don’t want your veil to be tight across your face.

step 2

Lay your veil flat on a table and place your hat on top.

step 3

Gather your ends and using your needle and thread tack your veiling to your hat using small stitches.

I’ve been seeing Anna Dello Russo wear one of these for awhile now and looking uber chic as usual. Kate Spade has one and I believe the trend started with Jill Sander. No matter who started it, it’s still an awesome combination of utilitarian warmth and classic sartorial chic (with a bit of whimsy thrown in for fun)! What’s not to love!?
