Two of winter’s biggest struggles have to be staying warm and good hair, and funny enough they somewhat go hand in hand. There is often a love-hate relationship with winter hats when it comes to style, fighting between hat hair and accessorizing with a winter beanie to stay warm. We know that Monday morning meetings don’t need a dash of bad hair, but who wants to spend all that time curling their hair only for the snow to totally ruin it? That’s why we picked out our favourite hats to keep you dry and warm, but your hair office ready!
Mackage Dori Hat
This cashmere knit toque adds a touch of luxury to a classic style with its fur pom-pom that we just can’t get enough of. It comes in a total of four colours including black and this on-trend army green. The Dori hat doesn’t fit snug which means it won’t ruin your hair either!
HBC Hand Knit Toque
We love the iconic Hudson’s Bay stripes and think everyone needs at least one of their toques. This handknit hat is a great choice as it’s 100% wool, which means this will keep you not only looking super cute but super warm too!
Free People Beanie
This soft and fluffy beanie from Free People is perfect to lighten up your winter look with its Lilac tone. It’s made from nylon so it might not keep you as warm as one of your wool toques but it’s fun and fuzzy, and at its affordable price point it’s a must-have in your winter accessory arsenal!
Bickley and Mitchell Beanie
Everyone needs a good old simple winter toques in their closet, or two, and we love this Bickley and Mitchell beanie! It’s knitted in a great salt and pepper colour which is a great alternative to your typical black but if you want something different it also comes in a light grey and blush pink!
Woolrich Knit Cashmere Hat
Woolrich is a newer name to the outwear scene in Canada, but this American Heritage brand has a long history and loads of experience with outdoor apparel. This knit cashmere is an exaggerated take on your traditional toque with its slouchy fit and oversized pom-pom, bringing an edge to this classic style.
