Womens Winter Hat Styles

There is no one type of winter hat that is suitable for every occasion but there is a style that will suit what you are looking whether for casual wear, sport of more formal occasions.

Probably the most popular winter hat style that comes in virtually every shape, color, and fabric, a beanie is an absolute must in every woman's winter hat wardrobe. Universally flattering for petite to large frames and versatile enough for multiple occasions, beanies can be as serious or playful as you want.

Get Creative With Color

The colour of the hat will often play a part in what situations it is suited to. Hats in bold colours or patterned hats tend to have more casual associations so are best for leisure activities such as skiing or off duty weekend wear.

Bright, neon colours are ideal if you want to be seen for example if you are running or cycling at night or if you do extreme winter sports where you may need to be rescued. A neon hat may well be out of place for a formal do!

Perhaps wear a bright yellow or pink pom-pom hat to add a pop of color to an otherwise monochromatic look.


For work or more formal occasions stick to dark colours and neutral tones which are dressier. Black, brown, grey and green hats are also a bit more versatile as you can wear them day to day without looking too out of place.



Beanie Hats

Beanie hats are probably the most popular knitted hat style and a winter staple for most. Beanie hats are most often made from polyester or acrylic but can also be made from wool or fleece.

If you have an oval shaped face a fitted beanie would suit you best as it won’t lengthen your face. If you have a heart shaped face, opt for a slouchy beanie which will soften the angles of the face.

The casual style of the beanie hat make them best suited to off duty wear and less so to formal attire.

Wearing your beanie for short hair

If your hair is super-short, you can make a good fashion statement with your beanie in many different ways. Firstly, you must choose the right style of beanie. You can go with any of these-visor beanies, knitted beanies, woven beanies, oversized beanies, fitted beanies, slouchy beanies, or tall beanies. If you choose any of the above mentioned beanie styles, you can be sure to get the best looks with your beanie irrespective of its texture. Simply place the beanie at the center of your head, pull in your tresses, and hide them beneath your beanie. Alternatively, you can leave out your bangs to outline your face for that sexier approach.


Wearing your beanie for shoulder-length hair

If you have anything close to medium-shoulder length hair, sleek or sophisticated beanies will look great on you. To add extra glamor to your look, forget the solid-colored beanies and go for the patterned ones instead. Also, it is not only about the way you style and wear your beanie. You can keep in mind other important elements of your outfit while you put together your fashion ensemble for your day. This is the only time you can put your beanie into very good use.



Wearing a Beanie for Long hair

Beanies are very wonderful accessories to have irrespective of whether your hair is straight, silky, or curly. Wearing your beanie right with these long hair styles accentuates your feminism, and when you style them the right way, you will achieve a very refined look without doing too much work. But make sure you keep your hair styling as natural as it can be since you have long hair because when you take off the beanie, the whole styling becomes fruitless. You can choose between leaving your hair down, keeping the bangs out, pulling all your hairs in, or tying a loose braid. Whichever one you choose, a beanie will always give you that edgy look you desire.



Bobble Hat

Always a popular hat choice for kids, now adults are getting in on the act. A bobble hat is usually a knitted beanie hat with a ‘ball’ on top, fur pom poms are a popular choice.

For those of you with an oval or oblong shaped face, like beanie hats, the bobble hat will compliment the shape of your face. In fact a bobble hat suits most face shapes.



If you have bangs, there are several options you can choose from when it comes to how to style your braids. With your full bangs, you simply need to wear your beanie a little bit further back to keep your bands from flattening down on your forehead. You can also sweep your bangs to one side and allow them to peek out from the front. Finally, if you have any problems with the bangs, simply stop them from showing by pushing them back.


When fighting the cold weather without sacrificing your fashion sense is a must, a winter hat is just what you need. With so many options ranging from anything-but-basic beanies to fabulous fedoras and other winter-approved headwear, the key is knowing what best suits the situation and your personality.
