Hats to Keep You Warm This Winter

Wanting to stay warm during the winter without sacrificing your personal style is a must!  And in addition to a fabulous coat and scarf don’t forget your hat so your ready to fight the chill in style.

For those of you who instantly think “hat’s don’t suit me” read my guide to help you find a hat that you can rock through the winter months.

Beanie Hats

By far the most popular winter hat, the beanie comes in a wide range of colours, fabrics (usually polyester, wool or fleece) and patterns and is a staple in every woman’s winter wardrobe.  Not only are they flattering for petite to large frames they suit most face shapes and are versatile enough for multiple occasions and can be as fun or serious as you want.

The casual style makes them best suited to a more dressed down look.  Try a pom pom beanie or for a touch of luxury treat yourself to one in cashmere or merino wool.  And for those who want to add a bit of sparkle opt for one with tonal sequins.

Beret

Similar to beanies, berets are soft, brimless hats that are easy to wear and flattering on most face shapes. Berets are made in a variety of fabrics including wool, crocheted cotton, and acrylic.  Unlike beanies, they don’t cover the ears so if this is your hat of choice it’s a good idea to compensate with a chunky knit scarf or faux fur collar to keep yourself warm.

What’s more there really isn’t a wrong way to wear to wear them so try different angles — tilt it to one side, center it on your head, or experiment wearing it backwards. Finish off with your favourite chunky knit sweater, plaid skirt and boots for a fun look that will work at the office or out with friends.

Fedora

The fedora is a more structured style of winter hat with a brim commonly made from wool and felt. The fedora has a crease down the center, is pinched at the front of the crown and is best suited to those with shorter face shapes.  And be sure to choose a style with a smaller brim to compliment a smaller face and frame.

Often worn by those with a more classic style preference a fedora will instantly jazz up any outfit.  Try combining a floppy fedora with a smart pair of jeans, satin top, killer boots and plush coat for a night out.

Trapper Hat

Trapper hats (otherwise known as an aviator hat or bomber hat) is known for its two ear flaps that can either be left hanging or folded back and tied up.  While these cold-weather hats are often made from suede or leather and lined with real animal fur, there’s no reason not to go cruelty-free with a faux fur version that will keep you just as warm and toasty.

Although trapper hats can be a more acquired taste (especially when worn with the ear flaps down), they are brilliant head warmers and great for the more adventurous who love being outdoors even in the coldest weather.  For a more stream lined look tie back the ear flaps and pair it with a faux mink jacket, flannel shirt, dark-wash denim and hiking boots.

‍Baseball Cap

If a baseball hat is more your thing switch it up in the cooler months and choose one made from a heavier fabric like wool, felt or cordoury.  Team with joggers and a puffer jacket for this seasons sports luxe trend or with jeans and a t-shirt for a more laid back look.

Headbands

Although technically not a hat, headbands are a popular choice for those not keen on wearing hats, runners and skiers.  Usually made from faux fur and light fleece headbands are great at keeping your head and ears warm keeping your hair of of your face.
