Hate wearing a winter hat? 11 Style Panel tips to making your beanie, toque, fedora and headband work (minus the hat head)

Winter Hat: Kassandra Camponi, Kastles

Whether I like it or not, winter seems to stick around for a very long time here. It starts early and leaves late. One has no choice but to embrace it. Embracing it includes accumulating a large collection of hats, scarves, mitts and coats (which is easily justifiable since I “need” all these items).

It is quite easy to wear these items and still look stylish. I find a lot of people like to buy winter items in basic colours such as black or grey. It tends to get a bit depressing after awhile. I like to mix things up and add a little cheer to my winter wardrobe by picking bright or patterned items, like this neon green beanie. Since this beanie is part of my ensemble, I usually leave the hat on while I am inside as well. This way I can avoid “hat head”. If you are afraid of hat head, there are also a lot of cute headband options out there. I find the knit headbands to be a little easier on the hair.
