The Trapper Hat: Chic Coverage for Winter

Trapper hat chicThe temperatures are dropping to low levels earlier than ever this season, and it’s time once again to bust out our chilly weather accessories, from leather gloves to shearling-lined boots.

But what about our heads? Beanies are great, but they’re often not enough to keep our noggin safe from the harsh winds and heavy snowfall.

The answer to this dilemma? Trapper hats. This masculine style offers extra forehead coverage, thicker padding, and oversized ear flaps, which made it perfect for the bomber pilots that wore them during WWII. But now you can rock one any day of the week (and they no longer have to be made of beaver skins!)

Trapper hats still have the chic look of a beanie, but with a lot more coverage. Sheepskin lined, pom pom adorned, intricately knitted, or rugged in suede, this season’s trapper hat is anything but ordinary.

Check out our top picks for trapper hats you can get right now. Your forehead and ears will thank you.
