Between below-freezing temperatures and icy slush, winter can feel like a lifetime, which makes it difficult to think of new outfits that are cozy and stylish. To break this fashion rut, I have been trying to accessorize with accessories that work for every style. This week, hats have been my go-to. Hats come in a lot of different styles, colors and fabrics that can upgrade any outfit. They are also a great way to hide your hair on those days when you can’t be bothered to style it. Here are some ways you can incorporate hats into your style.
- Sports caps. Wearing caps that support your favorite sports team, whether it be football, basketball, baseball or hockey, is a way to express yourself and stay in fashion. Although sports caps are worn during the spring and summer months to keep the sun out of your face, they boost any outfit with added detail. If you’re not a sports fan, find a cap decorated with your favorite pattern or color or a cap that showcases other interests like your favorite band or a catchy slogan.
- Beanies. Beanies give off relaxed and cozy vibes. The great thing about beanies is that they come in a variety of colors, designs and textures. Some beanies are made from wool or cotton, while others sport simple colors or wild zigzags. Beanies can be worn any time of the year and are a great way to keep your head warm or add a bohemian style to your look.
- Berets. Berets may be deemed as a “French artist look,” but I think they make a fashion statement. Not only do they keep your head and ears warm, but they are ideal if you are going for a classy look. I tend to search for berets in solid colors, such as black, red or gray, because they look stylish when paired with a skirt or dress pants.
