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 Amazon.com for a wide variety of animals, styles and colors.

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
