We all want to prepare for the winter, and while we pick warm booties, nice thick jeans, and a warm jacket, we shouldn’t forget about smaller accessories – mittens, scarves, and a good winter hat. Women know that the hat is paramount – you want to be beautiful, you want to draw attention to your face. And men more often tend to remember that the hat must be warm, well fitting and practical. Whether you buy hats in retail or wholesale winter hats, you should remember this!
A beanie is probably the most popular winter hat. It’s simple, cheap and reliable, and matches most every outfit – though it might not meld well with a formal winter cloak. A beanie is a knit cap or a seamed cap, often made from triangular sections of woolen fabric sewn together. They come in all colors and sizes – the larger ones are great because they can slouch on your head not unlike a beret.
If you are looking for something more formal, why not choose a regular hat, but made of warm felt? A fedora, trilby, or even a bowler hat could be warm and perfect for winter. In the US many young people choose a retro fedora, while in the UK some return to classic bowler hats. Wholesale winter hats like this are often bought by tailors to match bespoke suits in the winter months. They’re great for formal occasions, but the problem is that they often don’t protect your ears.
A newsboy flat cap is also somewhat retro, but it’s associated with the working class. Its flat brim is connected to a round headpiece, and it usually has a soft silken lining. Some of them can protect your ears, and are baggy enough to wrap long woman’s hair underneath.
Another alternative is the fur hat – some are made of wool or fake fur for the environmentally conscious. Karakul hats come from central Asia and can look great with a fur or sheep lining. Like Russian ushankas, they have special ear flaps to protect your ears and chin from the cold, so they’re great for the real frosts.
There are hundreds of other styles of wholesale winter hats available on the market, so pick one that fits you and your dreams best!
