Wendy Woods' blog: Haute hats at College Street boutique

Women tend to think that hats don’t look good on them. Sometimes I wonder if it’s because the only hats they’ve ever tried on are baseball caps and toques.

Hats are just so much more than that!

If you are one of these women, I highly recommend taking a trip to College and Bathurst to frolic in the world of Lilliput Hats.

Lilliput Hats is an environment where playing, and trying new things, is encouraged. The women who work at the boutique are ready to help those who want it. However, they’ll also let you browse on your own. Every time I go into the boutique there are women having so much fun trying on all the different styles Lilliput has to offer.

To be honest, I’m having a hard time choosing a few specific styles to highlight because they are all so gorgeous. That said, it is the perfect time of year to focus on getting a winter hat that is both practical and fashionable. Lilliput has so many winter hat styles to choose from you are guaranteed to find something that suits your face, shape, and size! The best part is any of the in-house styles can be custom-made to your colour choice and sized to fit perfectly to your head — at no extra charge.

If after visiting Lilliput Hats you still can’t find a style that suits you well, I may actually believe you to be a “non-hat” woman.
