17 Best Winter Hats for Women
January marks the need for cold-weather accessories, and therefore, the hunt for the best winter hats for women. Aside from that freezing patch we experienced just before Christmas, it hasn’t really been cool enough to wrap up in scarves, gloves and knitted beanies just yet. But, if previous starts to the year are anything to go by, we’ll be needing all of the above. Soon.
To avoid being caught out by -0°C climates (again), let us arm ourselves with some strong winter headgear – think pom pom hats, trapper hats and merino berets – before we really need it.
Of course, wardrobe staples like winter boots of supreme quality, hoodies, a warm winter coat, and the best thermals will remain. But treating yourself to one of the greatest ladies winter hats is the easiest way of ensuring your ‘fit stands out from the rest of them. While every other person you pass might be donning several layers of knitwear plus a duvet coat to keep warm (for good reason), a new-in or bestseller hat will provide a personalised finish, keep you toasty AND up your headwear game tenfold.
Any women’s winter hat styles worth seeking in particular? There is – of course – the classic cuffed beanie: back once again as a style staple for everyone. Whether you choose something ribbed, a bobble hat with a faux fur pom, something slouchy or something simple for functionality, there will absolutely be a style out there to suit you. Want to go full frontal #fashion when it comes to winter hats for women? Opt for a balaclava like this ribbed cashmere one from Joseph or this alpaca and cashmere-blend design from Lauren Manoogian. Berets are also back, thank you Emily in Paris, and we’re particularly obsessed with GANNI’s woollen iteration.
