Designing our Fall Animals collection is always so much fun, because we know these bonnets will be incorporated into countless Halloween costumes, from sweet and simple to jaw-droppingly elaborate. Plus, they're just plain adorable in everyday wear or imaginative play - take your baby out in a Lion bonnet, for example, and you're guaranteed to receive plenty of oohs, ahhs, and smiles at any time of year.
We've put together some fun (and easy!) Halloween costumes ideas for your Briar babes, and turned to the stylish ladies in our Facebook group The Briar Society for everyday animal bonnet wear inspo. Check them out below, and if you don't have an animal bonnet yet our final Fall Animals restock is Monday, October 8th!
Bear | costume idea: Smokey Bear
