I never used to be much of a hat girl, but last winter I changed my mind. I now am the proud owner of about 6 or 7 winter/fall hats, and let me tell you- they’ve come in handy during my commute to and from work. In the winter cold, hats not only add warmth to your head and ears, but they also can hide messy hair (I can’t be the only one who gets aggravated at the morning winds messing up my locks, right?)
I’ve found that not all hat styles look great on everyone. Yes, there are those freaks of nature who can pull anything off effortlessly, but I’m not one of them. I have a small head, so I have to stick to styles that work well for that. On the flip side, there’s plenty of styles for those with larger heads as well. The grass is always greener, right? Here are 3 hat styles I’m lovely lately- what about you?
Fedora hats for winter
I know many people associate fedoras with dapper men, but I promise that women can pull them off just as well. Fedoras work best for smaller faces with delicate features. If you’re worried that it’ll look too boyish on you, try a pretty color or a ribbon to add a touch of femininity to the look.
Beanies for winter
Beanies or knit berets (whichever you prefer to call them- I’ve seen both) are my go-to in the winter. They cover my ears and head but still let some hair show through so I don’t look like a 12-year-old boy. This versatile option works well on all face shapes and sizes- just adjust it to your liking on your hairline and forehead.
Wide-brim hats for winter
Ah- the wide brim hats. These look amazing on models and celebrities, yet I find them extremely hard to pull off as an average girl. The round and oversized brims of these hats work best on those with thinner faces (think angular faces and a strong jaw), since the roundness might overwhelm an already-round face.
