Of all the winter accessories you could possibly invest in, the best beanies and winter hats are nonnegotiables. They come in a million colors, knits, and fits—and can effortlessly pull together an outfit while also keeping your ears and head warm when it’s bone-chillingly cold outside.
In addition to fulfilling our need for maximum coziness, the great thing about beanies and winter hats is that you can find so many cute styles on the cheap—we’re talking $20 and under—meaning you can totally justify buying more than just one.
Ribbed knits and wool blends tend to cost less than cashmere styles, but if you plan on being outside quite a bit this winter, more luxurious fabrics like cashmere and merino wool are definitely worth your coin. (Let’s also not forget that few cold-weather accessories have the power to turn a bad hair day into a good one quite like a good hat.)
