40 Winter Hats You’ll Love Even If You’re Not A Hat Wearer

Unfortunately,  the winter cold is here to stay, so if you need some positivity while you wait for warmer weather, it’s time to switch up your winter hat game. I think hats are the most slept-on and timeless accessories that can transform your look. Funny enough, at the same time, winter hats are an accessory that are often overlooked.

Hats are perfect for bad hair days, sunny days, rainy days, and pulling off a model-off-duty look as you strut on your college campus. They’re staples that can weather any season, which means they make great investments for your closet. They’re also perfect for the days you want to go incognito and not run into anyone you know. 

You might be thinking: What if I’m not a hat person? I said the same thing until I found the right hat that made me feel confident in my outfits. I love wearing baseball caps because they’re basic enough to throw on with any look.

It all comes down to sticking to what makes you feel and look good. There are so many types and styles of hats, so it’s going to be hard to miss the one that fits your personality. Cotton, crochet, nylon, straw, wool… you name it, there’s a hat out there for you to rock this cold season. Here are 40 winter hats you’ll love — even if you aren’t a hat person.
