Style Files: Getting Cozy
Can anyone shed some light on the appeal of the tea cozy hat?
Please understand, we would never hate on an actual tea cozy – they are integral to our daily survival. Plus we love the idea of keeping a tea pot warm and cozy – it’s cute and twee. We may be sentimental tea-geeks when it comes to the original use of this item, but we are not remotely sympathetic to its rebirth as a popular head adornment.
Ever since Freddie Ljungberg debuted the look – and Becks made it a staple in his wardrobe, we’ve never quite understood the appeal. Even our half-love Gigsy was recently spotted in a cable-knit mocha flavoured one. Britain is cold, damp and full of weather misery, sure, but are these necessary?
We acquiesce on one thing: Ryan Giggs does redeem his hat choices somewhat with the snuggly bubba.
