Would YOU Wear a Gigantic Fur Hat With Ears? (VIDEO)

Beauty & Style 16

Lindsay Ferrier I'll Take That DareSure, celebrities and 'young adults' can wear a hat with ears and get away with it -- but what about a suburban mom?

in this episode of "I'll Take That Dare," I wore this ginormous hat in a VERY public place. See the priceless reactions in our video ... after the jump!


As you can see, reactions were decidedly mixed.

Outside of kids and teenagers, not many grown-ups are rocking the fur hats with ears in the suburbs of Nashville -- and while young people all acted like I was rocking the latest new look, people in their 30s and beyond looked at me like ... like ... like I was wearing a gigantic fur hat with ears!

Bonus points to those of you who catch the Twilight reference -- that was one of my favorite parts of the video.

This was the only dare of the series that has become pretty widespread -- I'm seeing all kinds of people in these hats now, although most of them are (well) under 25. 

As for me, I don't think I'll be wearing it to the grocery any time soon, but it's super warm ... I definitely plan on rocking it the next time it snows here in Nashville and I take the kids sledding.

How about you? Are you in on this fur-hat-with-ears trend, or will you be sitting this one out?

great start to the day! too funny. What a ridiculous hat though. It might look a little more normal with a heavier coat at least in some colder weather, but once you hit your teens you are too old to wear a hat with ears.

I have been known to go out in public with cat ears. I also have a winter hat with ears on top. I see nothing wrong with it at all. This one is cute too. :)

If it's fake fur, rock on! If it's real, they should be ashamed of themselves. YUCK.

If you wipe your own butt, you're too old to rock this look...

I would wear it.  I have a Panda hat with ears and a poofball tail (ya know, the knit stocking hats that all the rage) that I wear when it's cold.


I'm 30 years old... you're never too old to express your inner child :)
