It can be tricky to style outfits during these cold-weather months, but bold hats are making a big impact on runways this season. From bucket hats to berets, we’ve picked five of our current favorite hat trends that’ll take your winter fits to the next level. 

Sleek Bucket Hat

Like so much from the Y2K era, bucket hats are back in a big way. They look great with a velour tracksuit while bumping some Christina. This high-end version, Nanushka’s Vegan Leather Bucket Hat, is cut from soft vegan leather, making it suitable for both cool and warmer weather. saksfifthavenue.com, $325

Stetson with Flair

Stetsons never really go out of style, but this Western Golden Honey Hat by Keith and James provides a fresh take with a warm tan color accented by a red suede brim. This one is a showstopper. neimanmarcus.com, $700

Pretty Parisian

A classic wool beret is both sophisticated and practical this time of year. Local designer Amina Hood makes a red beret with tortoise detail in the front, which elevates the design. Each one is handmade and looks a little bit different. aminahood.com, $118

Lieutenant Cap

Given their military heritage, lieutenant caps tend to project confidence and control—though they can also look a little campy if you lean too far into that vibe. The Black Lieutenant Cap from Gigi Pip is awool-poly blend that’s understated, but it carries the look with a braided rope trim and brass accent button. gigipip.com, $68  

Patterned Baker Boy

Baker boy hats have a similar silhouette to lieutenant caps, but with a softer look. Alberta Ferretti’s Checked Baker Boy Hat, which is mostly wool, conveys cute and cozy. farfetch.com, $350
