Beanies or toques for winter! Currently my go to is a simple black Herschel one. Baseball caps for summer or else a straw hat for the pool or if I'm really sitting out in the sun.

Here in Canada, I definitely wear hats to get through our winters. My favourites tend to be knitted Pom Pom hats, although I do have a wool beret but I find it hard to get it positioned well on my head and have it stay that way.

I love hats, and I wear one all winter long. These days I wear a toque, but I also wear fedoras.

Emphatically yes! Ear coverage is absolutely necessary. I mostly wear beanies/toques in the winter, occasionally lighter weight knit berets/tams. Most of my hats are gifts from my mom -- she's a fiber artist and always experimenting and thanks to her I've accumulated a wonderful variety of hats (and scarves and mittens) over the years. That said, my go-to is a bright red merino beanie that I found in a $2 discount bin at Sierra Trading Post (I guess just Sierra now) seven or eight years ago. They were the most perfect winter hats, and such a great deal, that I bought a dozen of them and gave them as gifts to my whole family.

Always! I can't wear toques; my hair is fine and slippery and they pop right off the top of my head. Usually I wear a beret, or sometimes a headband to protect my ears better.

I also have a sheepskin-lined brimmed hat that's lovely for warmth in the depths of January, but the black has faded from sun exposure in the rear window, and I haven't figured out how to fix that.

In milder temps and minimal wind I'll sometimes wear a fedora or a more ladylike style of brimmed hat.

Something about the width of my shoulder demands a wide brim... Like, if I wear a 3" brim it almost disappears, looks like a bucket hat with a 1" brim. So hats need careful trying on, and also consideration to whether I'm blocking the view of someone behind me.

Baseball hats do not look good on me either. I wish they did because I go to a lot of baseball games.
In summer, I wear brimmed sun hats. For colder weather, I like beanies and berets. I do have one newsboy cap, but I haven't worn it much. Not sure why.

I liked all these cap styles. However, I like the one the guy is wearing here.

Absolutely - it's a matter of safety (and comfort, of course) in Minnesota winters. I also use the hood on my parka quite a bit in the winter. I like Turtle Fur beanies because they are lined with fleece, so they are extra warm.

Oh, just got a new hat - a black cashmere balaclava!
I’m so thrilled, I need one to wear in the winter on my way from a pool. I was concerned it might be too big for my small head but it fits!
