The weather is turning cooler and you’re all prepared. Warm coat, waterproof boots, and scarves and mittens all lined up. But wait – there is one very important article of clothing that will keep you warm and healthy this winter.
According to the U.S. Army Field Manual 40 to 45 percent of body heat leaves through the head. Kinda like all the warm air escaping when the door of the house is left open. Not so great…
Now just because you need a head covering to keep warm, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on the fashion aspect. Oh, no. Hats are a fashion statement all of their own!
When wearing a hat for warmth, you will want to look for a hat that comes lower on the head than, say a fedora. Like a cloche, bucket hat, or slouchy beret. In addition, the warm winter fabrics such as wool, angora, tweeds, twills and knits will keep you cozy all season long.
So have fun shopping for the perfect womens hats this winter – and remember… your health!
