Most cold weather staples (scarves, jackets, and the works) are ones you don’t ever really think twice about season after season. Having a few of each in your rotation is pretty much a given, even if only to embrace them sartorially rather than in actual defense against freezing temperatures. Hats for the fall and winter often end up an afterthought on the backburner, especially if you happen to live in a location where wearing a hat isn’t necessarily imperative for warmth. However, anyone can tell you from experience, the splurge on the additional accessory proves worth it every time, as hats have a special way of upgrading any outfit, especially in the fall.
Prepping your closet for the temperature drop doesn’t have to mean revisiting the same old styles again, such as gets-the-job-done hats devoid of personality. The best part about fall dressing this year is the opportunity to use the ability to layer on styles to explore fashion that is just as fun as it is functional. For hats, that can mean reaching for animal print (which, when you do it right, is basically a neutral), vibrant colors, and in many cases, something really fuzzy.
