Warm Winter Hats That Will Keep You Feeling and Looking Hot All Winter Long

Prevention Logo By Kayla Blanton of Prevention | Slide 1 of 18: The time has come. Hat wearing season is upon us, and you're likely feeling one of two emotions: excitement because yay, hats! Or dread, because the last thing you want to do is suffocate your crown with a swath of itchy, sweaty fabric. Regardless of where you land, we hear you. But with every new winter comes new caps on the fashion scene, and we're confident that anyone can find one that's comfortable, warm, and stylish. When it comes to trapping heat in with a hat, there are a few things you want to keep in mind. This might seem like a no-brainer, but it's important that it adequately covers the ears. A good fleece lining for insulation also doesn't hurt, and a snug fit (not too loose or too tight) is essential. Admittedly, those requirements narrow down the list of viable candidates, but a good batch of picks does exist. And they're not all beanies, either. Below, we've outlined some of the best options the internet has to offer including fuzzy bucket hats, a chic newsboy cap, a super-secure runner's hat, and some fun patterns and textures to keep life interesting. (Looking at you, leopard print faux fur.) All you have to do is assess your needs and choose one (or two!) that would suit your lifestyle best. And while you're at it, you might even pick one up as a holiday gift and cross another item off your shopping list.
