1. The sailor cap
I just love this iconic style for fall and winter! I do think it’s the perfect statement hat to pair with a more classic outfit like a long cashmere coat with jeans and ankle boots. And this season, I have this gorgeous Saint Laurent sailor cap made in Italy from luxurious black velvet on my wishlist, and I love this fabulous Eugenia Kim Sabrina cap.
2. The wool-felt fedora
The wool fedora is one of the chicest hat options for the winter season! It’s one of those hats you throw on to finish your outfit ready to receive countless compliments all day long.
Wool fedoras are inspired by vintage menswear styles and are one hat style that anyone can wear. This hat style complements any face shape and is available in various brim sizes. This season, I love this Maison Michel’s Virginie fedora in color camel and this Gigi Burris Jeanne fedora.
3. The alpaca bucket hat
I absolutely love this gorgeous Max Mara bucket hat made in Italy from a luxuriously warm blend of alpaca, wool, and silk. I do think it’s one of the chicest hats to wear for the winter season!
4. The velvet beret
This Maison Michel beret made from black velvet detailed with contrasting fil coupé dots is the perfect hat to add a dose of Parisian style to any look.
To properly wear yours à la Parisienne, try to pull your beret over your head, slightly to the side, but let a few hairs come out of your hat. Also, another way to wear it when you have a fringe is to position it slightly behind.
5. The cozy wool beanie
The wool beanie is just a cozy hug for your head! The ribbed-knit beanie has earned its place as a winter-style staple for everyone from downtown urbanites to alpine skiers. Consider opting for sleek styles in a neutral color palette like this beautiful Moncler Grenoble white wool beanie.
6. The faux fur knit hood
The faux fur knit hood is the perfect winter hat to keep your head warm and protected from the elements. Wear it to wrap up your après-ski ensemble or in the city when the temperatures fall below freezing. This winter, I just love this gorgeous Goldbergh Naomi style made from thick ribbed knit woven with soft wool and trimmed with fluffy faux fur.
7. The cashmere beanie
The cashmere beanie is the classic winter hat you definitely need in your wardrobe! Consider opting for a minimal design in a neutral color that will last you more than just one season and will add a smart finish to just about any winter outfit. This season, I love this fabulous Max Mara ribbed-knit cashmere beanie.
8. The cashmere bucket hat
The bucket hat from the 90s is back! After runway debuts at Fendi and Loewe, the winter-ready bucket hat took over the streets. And this season, the 90s trend has continued to gain momentum. I just love this gorgeous Gabriela Hearst bucket hat made from cashmere in a hushed ivory hue.
9. The shearling turn-up brim hat
10. The shearling baseball cap
For winter, it’s all about faux fur and shearling. And this season, I just adore this chic Chloé baseball cap made from plush shearling that’ll keep your head warm and protected against the elements.
