Wearing Men's Winter Hats

Men wear hats all year round. In the summer, hats are worn, not only for style, but to shade you from the sun. In the winter, hats are worn for a variety of reasons from keeping you warm to making a fashion choice. Whatever the reason, hats are here to stay and there is a style to fit into any man's wardrobe.

During winter there are outdoor activities such as skiing, sled riding and even shoveling snow. These activities require you to be out in the cold for long periods of time. Since most of your body heat escapes through your head, a hat will hold in the heat and keep you warm.

One of the biggest concerns that men have is that a hat won't be comfortable. There are many styles to choose from that will feel great and make you want to wear it all the time. When shopping for a hat, try it on to make sure it does not itch or hurt. Choose a style that you feel comfortable in and that you won't mind wearing for a long period of time.

Give yourself several hat options for different purposes. For example, a hat you wear out shoveling snow should not be the same hat you wear for a winter date.

Styles of Winter Hats

There are many styles of hats for winter. Men can choose styles that they feel good in and match their personal style. Some popular styles of winter hats include:

  • Earflap Hat
  • Knit Hat
  • Fur Hat
  • Kangol
  • Fedora
  • Wool Cap
  • Newsboy
  • Leather Cap

Hats come in various materials as well. When choosing a winter hat, look for fabrics that are insulating and warm. You will want a hat that is made from a durable material that can stand up to snow and will keep moisture off your head. Look for materials that are breathable so you don't end up with something that will make you sweat. Some hats come with a lining such as cotton or silk if the outer part of the hat is constructed from a material such as wool, which can itch or scratch.

Finally, a last consideration when purchasing a winter hat is the color. If you are just considering one hat for winter, choose a color that will match everything. Black or gray are both neutral colors and will go with a variety of clothes in your closet. Other neutral color choices are brown, navy blue or taupe. If you want to make a statement, choose a bold color for your hat such as red or orange. There are hats done in prints, plaids and even adorned with logos. These hats can go with a lot of things and can be the focus of your outfit. If you have a favorite coat that you wear in the winter, consider matching your hat to the coat.
