Named after a Glaswegian ice-cream cone, The Pokey Hat is a website overflowing with modern and vintage clothing. The founder, Jennifer Welford, has created a broad apparel to showcase your individuality through the garments available. Appealing to fashion-forward women, who want to show off their uniqueness, The Pokey Hat embraces all that is personal style.

Having started off as an eBay shop, The Pokey Hat formed into a widely sourced and shipped brand in 2011. The combination of modern and vintage trends is always a great plus for us girls, as it is often difficult to find a place that offers both. It is especially rare to discover this combination which includes on-trend garments that can complement one another.

The modern clothing section includes accessories, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, celebrity styles and customised garments. Ranging from very feminine bodycon dresses and skater skirts to grungy, studded bra tops and leopard leggings, the modern clothing is suitable for a city girl in any season. There are even garments that would be perfect for this festive season, such as this cut-out glitter mesh dress which just sings Christmas to us.

The vintage section, on the other hand, helps to feed our floral obsession with floaty or day dresses, high-waisted shorts and cropped blouses. This section has a definite spring/summer vibe, and is a great place to stock up ready for the warmer months. However, this blue vintage day dress, teamed with a warm jacket could also work well in winter. These pieces are for a more girly you, and can put a spring in your step.
