One of the best things about the winter season is the fashion. More specifically, the outerwear fashion. You know, the cool leather jackets, the beautiful knit scarves and of course, the winter hats. But before you head out to the store to select a couple of hats that will help to accessorize your wardrobe through spring, we wanted to provide you with a few helpful tips on how to choose a stylish winter hat that will not only keep you warm but keep you looking pretty stylish too.
Get hats that will complement your coat(s). Although there are some hats that you may choose to keep on once you come in from the bitter cold, being that some hats will be strictly for outwear purposes, make sure to select some that will complement your coat. Keep in mind that they don’t have to match exactly, but simply coordinate. For instance, if you have a black pea coat, a white, gray or even red hat could complement it quite well.
Get hats that will work with your hairstyles. One of the most attractive things on a woman is a man’s golf cap or brim hat. But if you have a high ponytail or thick braids, those kinds of hats are probably not going to fit. So while it is a good idea to style your hair around the hats that you plan to wear, also make sure to pick up some that will work with many types of hairstyles. Cotton beanies are one kind that immediately come to mind.
Get hats that will suit your plans. Like we said, some hats you will need to wear while you’re outside for a long period of time. In this case, ski hats are ideal because they don’t just cover up your head, but your ears as well. Although they used to be strictly seen as a ski accessory, these days, people wear them for high fashion reasons too.
Get hats that will not itch. Say that you see a wool hat that you like a lot but the thing is that once you put it on, you find yourself scratching your head a lot. That’s not uncommon because depending upon how a hat is made, that will sometimes determine if a fabric like wool will end up irritating you or not. That’s why it’s a good idea to try hats on before you leave the store. That way you can find some that will keep you both warm and comfortable at the same time.
Get hats that will suit your personality. The fun thing about shopping at stores like Hats Unlimited is that you can find a wide variety of hats that will specifically suit your personality. Whether it’s a fedora, a beret, a newsboy cap or something else that interests you, don’t be afraid to look for ones that come in your favorite style but also your favorite kind of fabric. There are hats made out of wool, cotton, corduroy, fleece, faux fur and fur. So long as you feel good in it and it keeps you warm, the winter sky truly is the limit!
