Yes, You Need a Cold-Weather Bucket Hat

And a classic beanie. Oh, and a beret. We rounded up the cutest, warmest winter hats here!

For anyone who has watched Netflix’s Emily in Paris, it’s inevitable that you came out of your binge-watching rabbit hole with two thoughts in mind. First of all, what the heck was Emily Cooper (played by Lily Collins) wearing on her head for the majority of the show. (FYI, it was a series of somewhat questionable hats, earning her the nickname Bucket Hat). And secondly, should I get one? The answer to the latter is 100% yes. Actually, to be more specific, you should get a cute winter hat.

With the COVID-19 pandemic still very much a thing (despite what some celebrities who are continuing to throw huge parties may tell you), and winter fast approaching, the reality for many Canadians is that we’re going to be spending *a lot* of time inside—or outside in frigid temperatures. Whether it’s to get in a daily walk, escape to cottage country for a staycation of sorts (lucky ducks!) or to sit on a heated patio with friends to socially distance *and* still be social, we’ll be in the great outdoors whether we like it or not. Meaning, we’ll need to not only be super warm (again, those frigid temps), but also super cute. Because there’s only so much creative expression your Michelin Man puffer coat allows you.

Luckily for you, just in time for winter, we’ve rounded up some of the best chapeaux of the season. They’re chic, functional as heck and ring in at a variety of different price points. Plus, several of these cute winter hats are from homegrown Canadian brands because it’s more important than ever to support local.
