Six reasons why winter hats are the best accessory

Six reasons why winter hats are the best accessory

If you’re one of those people who finds themselves saying “I hate winter” every single day during the cold season, then this article is for you. You’ll find that one simple thing can change your mood about winter. It’ll change your perspective and make you look forward to the day ahead, even though it may be raining outside. And that one simple thing is the perfect winter hat.

Winter hats are an often overlooked accessory that should be given a lot more credit where fashion is concerned. They’re the perfect addition to any outfit and you should own as many as possible. Not convinced? Well, here are six reasons why you should go out and shop for some amazing winter hats right now.


They keep you warm

The first rule of winter is to stay warm at all costs. Winter coats, jerseys and long-sleeved vests should be layered on as soon as you wake up in the morning. But what about your head. You know the icy temperatures are going to freeze your ears, even if you try to cover them with your hair. That’s why winter hats are so great. They keep your head warm and can cover the tops of your ears. And if that’s not warm enough, you can wear a cute winter hat with ear flaps.

If you have short hair, you’re going to need a winter hat more than anyone else. There are few things worse than an ice cold breeze hitting your neck and crawling down your spine. A scarf can offer only so much coverage without starting to get in the way. Winter hats, however, offer protection from the cold and if you match one up with a nice scarf, you’ll be warm and snug all day long.


They come in all different styles

Whether you want a hand-knitted wool beanie with a cute pattern or a wide-brimmed statement grey hat, you’ll find something for you. People have different shaped faces and different sized head, this means that not everybody can pull off the same hat. That’s why it’s so good you can buy all sorts of winter hats to suit you and your personal style. So, when you go shopping for winter hats, take your time and select a few that really show off your best features and personality. Don’t just buy the first thing you see. There are lots out there to choose from, so explore all your options.


They’re the best cure for a bad hair day

Have you ever had a day where your hair just wouldn’t comply with your plans, no matter how much you tried to get it right? Have you ever had a day when you just woke up, crawled out of bed and decided the day wasn’t worth even brushing your hair? Or have you ever had a day when you simply didn’t have the time to wash, condition and style your hair? Well, that’s when having a range of winter hats helps.

When you’re wearing a hat, nobody can see the disaster that lies underneath. You don’t have to feel self-conscious or uncomfortable because your messy or dirty hair is completely hidden from the world.


They can dress up or dress down an outfit

Are you planning on going to a semi-formal, mid-morning brunch with some old high school friends you haven’t seen in at least a year? Then you can choose a hat that’s bold and can be dressed up with other accessories. You can even add a broach if you want to make more of a statement. And if you’re simply going to the office to sort out some paperwork, you can dress down your hat by not wearing any other accessories (except for a scarf to keep you warm, of course). While you may not want to wear a beanie to a wedding on a wine farm, you’ll find there are loads of winter hats out there (even men’s winter hats) that can be dressed up or down.


They’re easy to take on and off

It’s simple, you need to layer your clothing in winter. So, it makes sense to wear things that are easy to remove if you go into a heated room. You can easily take off your hat without ruining your entire outfit (although your outfit will definitely be less impressive without your stylish winter hat).


They can be worn three days in a row

Even if you’re not seeing the same people every day, you still don’t want to be caught wearing the same thing multiple times in one week. That’s why winter hats are so great. Unlike your favourite knitted sweater, you can wear the same hat a few days in a row. You simply have to change your outfit. Your hat is simply a stylish and practical accessory that you can mix with lots of different looks.
