Winter is the perfect time to get to know a hat. Unlike summer when the idea of any hat without great ventilation can be a little stifling, a good winter hat can help you retain body heat while making a fashion statement and doubling as a method of concealing the inevitable static cling number your hair does 8 out of 10 January days. Some of the cutest and most seasonally appropriate hats you can grab up for the winter are going to be knit or imitations of it including cozy versions of classic numbers.
Nils Solid Knit Hat
The Nils hat sold for $29.99 on Amazon.com offers a warm and toasty hat in a cheery natural color bordering on beige. The nil hat features a slight brim for a slight break from winter wind or glaring sun. The perfect cable knit ensures that the hat also provides a lot of winter warmth.
The Knit Fedora
Montana Bear Food sells a swanky knit fedora for $30.00. This hat is exceedingly perfect for adding edge to an outfit without the stiffness that a classic fedora lends. The knit is going to retain body heat while still being chic allowing you to stay safe and warm while being fashionable.
The Knit Beret
Jessica Simpson’s line carries a knit beret in black, purple, and turquoise for just a little over $12.00 through 6PM.com. A beret is a perfect casual hat to put on when you are going out for a quick trip to the grocery store and your hair will just not cooperate. The knit beret goes good with jeans or with more sophisticated ensemble choices.
The Bamboo Knit Cloche
Hats in the Belfry has a darling hat in their Kangol Sweetcorn bamboo nit cloche. Made with natural bamboo fibers, this hat exudes a toasty warmness while honoring a classic style. A cloche, if not known to you by name, is the more sophisticated hat usually worn by women in the 1920s and 1930s – think Angelina Jolie in The Changeling. At $54.00, this hat is an investment, but a good one.
