5 Winter Hats We Love

Jan 23, 2013

According to a completely non-scientific study we read recently, you feel temperature changes most in your head, hands and chest. So while you don't necessarily lose most of your body heat through your head (sorry, moms who say that to get us to wear a hat in winter, but that's a myth), you will feel colder if you don't wear a hat when it's cold out.

Fortunately, we've scouted the internet to find the best-looking toppers that are both stylish and toasty. Check them out and find your favorites.

#5 Knit Beret 

Katie Holmes may be a mom, but her adorable style is fitting for any teen or 20-something with fashion sense. We're loving the knit beret from Forever 21 -- at $1.99 (USD), you can get one in every color!

#4 Cloche Felt Hat

Justin Timberlake isn't the only one who can rock a fedora. Check out Blake Lively in one of her signature fall and winter looks. She usually picks neutral colors like gray and tan, but for anything  from canary yellow to deep, dark gray, adorned with bows, feathers and sparkly clips, we found the widest variety of colors, shapes and sizes at Target.

#3 Knit Beanies

The lovely Amanda Seyfried is often seen sporting a knit beanie, and so can you! They keep your head toasty warm, crush nicely to stuff into a backpack or pocket, and come in many colors and different knits. Eddie Bauer features these in all colors and shapes starting at $9.99 (USD).

#2 Faux Fur Hat

Who says high fashion better than Angelina Jolie? Faux animal fur is all the rage with fashion- and eco-conscious celebrities, and the pricetag is more digestible, too. We ~heart~ the bucket hat style, but Angelina's Russian Princess look is okay by us, especially when paired with a matching shawl.

#1 Animal Hats

Don't wait for Halloween or a trip to Disneyland to get your ears on. Get fun, funky and fashionable with these cute and warm kitty-eared faux fur hats. All the celebs are doing it... Like Jessie J., Demi Lovato and Nikki Minaj (pictured below) as well as Dakota and Elle Fanning. Head to Urban Outfitters or shop for a wide variety of animals, styles and colors.

Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.

I'm 12 years old, and for some reason I'm always sad. I got a gold medal in my gym, and I just started crying, but I wasn't crying because I was happy. I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm hoping to get my ears pierced, though I don't have the time or money to do it at the moment. Hopefully soon, though.
