Love Actually was a film that followed eight couples and gave us quite a few memorable romantic scenes. It’s more of a Christmas film due to the timeline of the movie, but it’s set in winter and it’s romantic so we’re using it as a lead up to Valentine’s Day. There are many characters in the film and we noticed there is a lot of bundling up from sweaters to scarves to hats. This movie was released over ten years ago, so we wonder, if these characters had to keep warm this year, what would we see them in?
Puffy coats are popular this year. They’re more fitted than in years past which is a nice change, some are actually quite figure flattering. We think at least a few of the characters would sport one of them. Peacoats, or other buttoned and collared coats, are still in fashion. Some of the characters wore beautiful coats in the film, like Natalie’s fabulous long red coat. It would still look great today.
As far as winter accessories, infinity scarves would be a great updated piece. Beanie hats are still in fashion so no issues there. For gloves they’d be interested in getting ones with special fingertips for smartphones, or they could even go for fingerless gloves.

- Berets – Though associated with French culture, these hats have been worn all over Europe for centuries.

Though felt is the most popular material, fleece and wool are also common. Pair this hat with a leather jacket and jeans for a chic and casual look.
- Newsboy Caps – Made popular by the working class of the 19th and 20th centuries, these hats have crossed over to modern day women’s fashion. Made of felt, twill, tweed and wool, they may not cover your ears but they fit snugly over the top of your head, preserving your hairstyle. These hats look adorable paired with a slouchy sweater.
- Skull Caps – Also known as “Skullys” or “Beanies” are snug fitting hats that fit over your head and cover your ears. They come in many different fabrics such as fleece and wool but are most popular when knitted. Available in many colors and patterns, with pom-poms or not, they are easy to match with any casual or active outfit. Because of the way this hat can interfere with your hairstyle, it is best to wear your hair loose, in a low ponytail or pigtails.
