When shopping online for a winter hat there is more to consider than you may think. Don’t just pick the first one that takes your fancy, think about function, formality and style before making your decision. Here's how!
The key word to keep in mind when comparing headwear for the colder seasons is insulation. Unlike summer styles, a winter hat needs to keep your head warm! Material and coverage are the two main factors that influence how toasty a hat will keep the top of your head.
This surely goes without saying, but the perfect winter hat needs to be stylish! How a hat frames the face can make or break your look, so it’s important to find the right one to combine fashion with functionality. Read on to learn more about our top styles for winter.
You may remember these hats with their ball or pompom on top from football matches as a kid, but with the likes of big streetwear and sports brands putting out their own variations, the bobble hat has well and truly made a return.
Thanks to TV shows like Peaky Blinders, flat caps and other similar styles like newsboy or baker boy hats have really made a comeback. Famous flat cap fans include the likes of Idris Elba and Colin Farrell – just think less Del Boy and more dapper English gent and you'll be onto a winner.
Bold, primary colours and neons make a statement and can seem hard to pull off, however, if you prefer something a bit more exciting than black or grey, we suggest burgundy or teal for a more wearable pop of colour this winter.
Now you know what to look for when shopping online for a new winter hat, you can move onto our top 10 recommendations. From smart brimmed styles to doff to passers-by to classic beanies, this list is sure to give you some ideas!
