We round up the most stylish hats to buy this winter.
From floppy hats to fedora hats, cosy beanies to stylish berets - hats are an obvious winter essential, but choosing the right one can be a tricky task - which is why we've done the work for you, and rounded up the best ones available this season. A well-chosen hat can give even the most basic outfit that all important edge. And if you want to make a statement, hats are most definitely the way to go.
The golden rule to remember when wearing a hat is to have fun. Do not take it off, hold it in your hand, or put it away in your bag. When it comes to wearing a hat, confidence is key.
In terms of finding a flattering fit, floppy ridges will soften out any edges which is great for square shaped faces, while taller fedoras will lengthen out a round face. If you have an oval face, you're very lucky, because you can wear just about any style of hat with ease, but beanies and berets are especially flattering.
The right hat can also keep you cosy through the chilly winter months, not to mention save you from a bad hair day. Simply pop onto your head, tuck your hair underneath and voila - instant glamour and no one will know will know anything. So there you have it. Whether you're a trilby wearer, or more of a pom pom queen, the right hat is guaranteed to inject style into any outfit…and here are 10 of the best hats available to buy on the high street now.
