Keep The Heat In And The Style On!

It’s cold outside and here’s a physics lesson for you, if you already didn’t know; body heat escapes through your head! Keep your dome covered this winter season with a fun & fashionable hat. We’re not talking baseball caps people. There are so many types of hats trending right now that it’s hard to go wrong. Here are some ideas for covering your dome, trapping warmth and maintaining style at the same time:

Ladies, pair up some skinny jeans with a men’s style blazer and a classic fedora. You can find fedoras in all colors and fabrics, so there’s a lot to choose from. Or, choose a messenger type hat in a knit like wool or fleece. Match this up with leggings of the same color and a willowy tunic. These are warmer fabrics, so this is an excellent choice on those super blustery days. Berets are also huge right now! Pull this one off by wearing your hair down and full of curls for a polished look. Berets are great whether you want to dress it up or down, choose a black beret for a more dressy/classic look.

Guys, pull away from your go-to fitted baseball hat this winter! Please! This is a summer hat and not to mention; way too casual. Fedoras work not only for the ladies, but men as well. Rock a fedora with a wider brim for a more masculine look (think The Godfather or Goodfellas type looks), this is huge right now and you’ll come off looking like you know your stuff when it comes to fashion. For the colder days where you’re looking for more substance than style, go with a beanie. North Face has some great beanies and newsboy hats in wool and fleece right now that look great with a pair of slacks and a scarf in neutral colors.

Hats don’t have to be a cover-up for when you’re not looking your best. They can be one of the best accessories in your closet and really amp up an outfit. The fact that they serve a functional purpose is only an added bonus!
