There is no accessory more useful during those frosty days, bonfire nights and evenings out than the perfect winter hat. From hats to keep warm in to fashion statement style hats, there is the perfect fit for everyone.

The Kooples recently paired up with Art Comes First to launch a line of unisex hats, in a range of styles suitable for both men and women. Many couples already know that stealing your other halves hats during the winter seasons is a given, therefore this head gear is perfect as it is style and not gender specific.

Amongst the most popular of winter hats is of course the beanie. Available in a rainbow of colours, this is the item we return to in our wardrobes year after year, comfortable in the reassurance it will never go out of fashion. Although each winter brings new designs and patterns, bobbles and shapes; we know that the beanie hat is a keeper for men and women.

More recently we have seen the rise in popularity of other hats including fedora hats, trilby hats, bowler hats and riding caps. These are available in a range of materials from straw in the summer, to more common felt designs for the autumn and winter. This season the most sought after colours seem to be mulberry, black, brown, navy and dark green in all these styles of hats. Therefore, if you’re looking for a change from your ‘go to’ beanie, invest in one of these hats and you’ll be bang on trend with the latest crazes.

Other hats for you to try out this season are the traditional beret, which seems to be making a come back and fur/faux fur Cossack hats which were also a big hit last year. They are an ultimate guaranteed head warmer and look sophisticated with pretty much everything. All in all, if you’re looking for some staple accessories to add to your winter wardrobe then hats are the best investment. They will mix up your outfits, add style and sass, all whilst keeping you warm.
