Styles of Winter Hats

  • Canvas Wildfowl Cap: When it comes to wildfowl caps, Canvas is the best! Canvas can be really durable and this is what makes it the perfect hat to go to work with. It’s washable and so you will not mind it getting dirty when you need to get your outdoor chores done. It’s more of an informal cap and not suitable for a night out.
  • Toque/Chook: This style is better known as a beanie. This is the most common of winter hats and is available in many varieties. They are available in a wide range of colors, fits, fabrics, and prints. They are durable, warm, and can be used in nearly all situations and scenarios.
  • Hunter’s Orange Knit Hat: This is basically a beanie but it’s the color alone that sets it apart from the rest. This hat has a life saving functionality. When this hat is worn in the woods, you become visible from almost 17 miles away and this will make sure you are not seen as a target! Life-saving indeed! A must-have for hunters and explorers.
  • Ski Hat: Yet again, the good old knit hat has the best functions of a beanie. But this comes with some additional features which make it perfect to wear when skiing. It has braided strings in the end which can help with measuring how fast you are skiing, two optional extra strings that you can tie to your noggin and well designed ear coverings to prevent frostbite.
  • Wool Packer: There are a number of packer hats, but the only packer hat you can wear in the winter is a woolen packer hat. This hat is usually woven with beautiful designs and can protect you from snow and pouring sleet. This kind of hat is perfect for formal occasions like going to the church.
  • Cossack: The Cossack is by far the best choice for formal occasions during the peak of winter when you need the most warmth. It’s classy and can be just as warm as bomber hats. It gives the wearer a dignified and honorable look and has its sources in the southern areas of Russia.
  • Bomber Hat: There can’t be a better hat for the -20 weather conditions. The bomber hat is a must wear when there is prolonged exposure to harsh winter winds and blizzards.

 

Beanie Hats

The Bangs

If you have bangs and want to make the most out of these without looking like a drenched cat, then opt to wear the beanie just an inch or two above the hairline. It allows the bangs to frame your face while still keeping your ears warm. If you have a full bangs, pull the hat a bit further on to the back of the head to give the area a little breathing room, preventing your bangs from flattening down. You can also do a side sweep of your bangs to give yourself a different look.

Lazy and Slouchy Look

Having a bad hair day? Don’t have time to shampoo your hair or just don’t have the time of the day to fix it? Wearing a slouchy beanie can take care of it. Choose a hat that is slouchy and you can hide your hair, ears and everything else without worrying that you look like you just dragged yourself from the bed. A folded brim one is also perfect as you can fold a section of the cap or unfold it if you want all of your hair bundled up inside.

That Wind Killer

Cold weather comes with cool wind that would certainly mess up your look. If you want to secure your locks in place or just until you get to the office, braiding your hair will keep it away from your face. Top it with a beanie to keep short locks away from your face. Braiding your hair and wearing a beanie will also make you look good especially when you are running errands or just going about in your regular activities.

Keep it Cool and Loose

Some ladies want to wear their hair loose, not only does it frame and make your face smaller, it is also a must for ladies who have sensitive scalps. Choose a fitted hat or brimless one to wear when you want to wear your hair loose. This will prevent your locks from flying all around your face but it will also cover your ears and scalp from the cold wind while still making you look fab.
