As the above photo of some of my winter hat collection might suggest, I'm very partial to a woolly hat! I probably have more bobble hats and beanies than anyone needs, but they're a winter essential for me.
Knitted Floppy Hats
A big knitted hat, with or without a bobble, is super cute for cold weather. My current favourites are pictured above: the red hat with a fur bobble from Topshop last year; a navy blue super floppy bobble hat brand new from Primark (£3!) and a gorgeous cream beanie with gold specks which I bought recently at Forever 21.
The adorable hand-knitted beanie pictured above is the 'Kelli' beanie* by the lovely Megan at Whiskers On Kittens
. All of the Whiskers on Kittens winter warmering headwear are absolutely spot on, I also love the moustache motif 'Daniel
', perfect pastel 'Creep It Real
' and super cute 'Allybab
' beanie with a knitted bow. Buy the pre-existing designs on Bigcartel
, or you can even make a custom order at the Whiskers On Kittens Facebook
Brands & Bands
Less cute and often more expensive than a handmade hat, but undoubtedly stylish are beanies by your favourite brand or band. The three pictured above are by 'streetwear' brands Obey, Stussy and Carhartt respectively and aren't current season, but you can pick up new variations of the Carhartt Watch Hat at any retailer (Size?, Urban Industry) and both Obey and Stussy are still producing quality headwear!
Happy winter shopping x
