Christmas and New Year are officially over…it's time to hit the slopes! However, when you see how cold it is outside, you think twice about zooming down those hills in your one piece. Take action against the cold and wear uber-warm, snug accessories on the extremities of your body such as hands, feet and head. Here’s our advice on the best skiing hats around… What type is best for the slopes?
It’s pretty simple - just make sure your hat will keep you warm! Try a 100% wool hat which is sure to keep your head toasty during your 20 minute wait on the ski lift. Another important aspect is to make sure that your hat covers both your head and your ears properly. The ears are very fragile and don’t cope well in the extreme cold so keep them covered! The final important tip is the fit of the hat. Make sure your hat will stay on your head…you don’t want it falling off mid-ski. Hat trends.
Statement hats are bang on trend this A/W 2013-2014, so it shouldn’t be too hard for you to find a hat that covers your ears well. Add a quirky vibe by turning up the brim of the hat, or roll it up slightly if you find it too big for your head. As for the colour, it’s really up to you. Try matching it with your different ski suits. Who said that just because you’re skiing, you can’t be fashionable and girly! How to style hair when wearing a hat?
This all depends on the size of your hat. If you opt for a statement hat, similar to those spotted on the Giles runway, you’re spoilt for choice. From tied up hair to loose flowing hair
, the possibilities are endless. If you choose a small hat, you’re restricted to wearing your hair down, which can become annoying after a few goes down the slopes with your hair flapping all over. © Getty / Giles prêt-à-porter runway, A//W 2013-2014 © Jean Louis David
