Choose a winter hat style
Now that you know your face shape, you can start scouting for the recommended style. As mentioned, the most versatile is fedora hat. However, there are other hats that are comfortable, stylish and flexible. There’s the beanie hat, which is the most popular knitted hat style. This is a winter staple together with the Fur Bobble Hats. Basically, these two are the same the only difference is that the bobble hat has this distinct ball on top or pom poms.
Pick the right material
The next thing that you have to consider is the material used. During the winter, the most popular hat material is the fur. Fur hats are synonymous with glamor, style, and luxury. In other words, furs are expensive. There’s the rabbit fur, sheepskin, mink fur, beaver fur, muskrat fur, coyote fur, raccoon fur, fox fur and many more. The less expensive fur is the faux fur, which is a synthetic fur. Remember that the price will depend on the materials used.
Know your size
Hats also have sizes. Measuring size is easy – you just need to measure the circumference of your head in centimeters or inches. Get a tape measure and hold it just above your ears then measure the circumference. Make sure that you do not hold it too tight just enough for it to sit snugly.
Hopefully, with the things mentioned above, you can find the right hat in no time. There is still time to look for two more hats in preparation for winter. Happy shopping!
