Earmuffs: Thumbs up or down?

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

The other week when I posted about cozy winter hats a few of you emailed me asking if I could suggest a snazzy alternative to the classic hat. Something that keeps ears toasty, without getting "hat hair". So, I thought of cozy earmuffs! The trend seems to be back this winter and I even sent this furry pair as a Christmas gift to my best friend. The cool part about them is that they come in a few sizes so you can choose how visible you want them to be. Also, they don't mess up your hair like the regular hats and can look very stylish if you choose the right fit for yourself. (I'm thinking about getting those).

So, sweets, what do you think? Would you wear earmuffs? Or do you already have them? xo

P.S: If you fancy getting a pair, here is a selection of 30 awesome earmuffs for winter!
P.P.S: Also, Princess Leia earmuffs worn by Emma Stone and  here is a cool earmuffs DIY project.

That sounds like a good alternative to hat hair. I wonder if they make them for babies as well. haha...I'd love to see Maximus in a pair! :)

Have a sweet day, dear Diana!

I definitely think earmuffs are a good hat alternative! I have "messy" hair anyway, so hats don't bother me, but if I was going to a party or something, I would want to avoid hat head.

Personally, I love 'em. I'm not that fond of the overly big furry ones in the first photo, but the rest are gorgeous!

I'm a fan because they don't mess up your hair like hats sometimes do.

I'm generally not a fan, although smaller ones (like in the second photo) look pretty nice. I think they also look better in a neutral color, as opposed to the hideous bright pink ones I had as a child. ;-)

Alexa said...

Love the girl with the brown gloves, she's so cute. I could never pull of the earmuff look though! Ha.

Sara Szatmary said...

hmmm I'm not sold on this look. I see some ladies that make it look awesome, but others look silly. I say, if you love it: go for it!

Melissa Blake said...

For some reason, they always bother my ears. But they're cute!

Diana Mieczan said...

Heidi, I bet there are some cute earmuffs for babies. Maximus would look totally adorable wearing them!

Diana Mieczan said...

Giggle, Stephanie! I had a red pair...hahah

Diana Mieczan said...

Kristi, great point. They are perfect for parties - keep your ears warm and your hair beautiful:)

I have never enjoyed them. Thumbs down
I can't hear as it is then muffle my ears with big things that don't fit comfortably on my head.
I will take hat hair any day ;)
