Cloche hats date to the early 20th century. These hats made of various material show off style and class year-round. Knitted or wool cloche hats work well for keeping out the winter chill.

Berets remain a favourite hat style of women. Winter berets vary in the width of the hat and rim, from thin to wide. Berets sit on the head a bit to the side, at a tilt or turned around, and placed far back on the head.

Toque hats, once used only by skiers and other winter athletes, add creative fashion to winter hat choices. This snug-fitting hat frequently sports an added brim, pom poms or side flaps, making it not only warm but fashionable.
