A tuque is defined as a knit winter hat with no brim and a tapered top standing off the head. Also known as my childhood snowman-building accessory of choice. It's made a comeback for Fall and was spotted on runways like Burberry and Alexander Wang. I was surprised and kind of tickled - my elementary school wardrobe was getting a nod, but in cashmere and cable knit. But, no matter how amazing the hat feels or what designer label is sewn inside, we're totally aware of just how silly these hats look in person. The unattractive look is twofold: for one, you look a lot like a hobbit with a hat standing a good six inches off the top of your head. And then when you try to correct that by taking it off, your hair looks kind of like a hairball thanks to the magic of static. But, not only do tuques keep your head truly warm, they also add a certain "what the hell is that?" to your boots and coat outfit. So, would you wear a tuque? Or is this best left to 4-year olds who don't care for mirrors? --KYLE HAYES
