Considering you’re probably going to be wearing one every day for the rest of the season, you can never have too many beanies. We picked six of our favorite styles to keep you warm and stylish through the winter months.
Upstate Stock Hat ($32)
An understated beanie can go with nearly any outfit. This one from Upstate Stock is made from acrylic and mohair and sewn here in the United States. It’s light and warm, and you can rock it cuffed or uncuffed, depending on your mood.
Coal x POW Beanie ($30)
Coal partnered with Protect Our Winters for a beanie that’s produced using 76 percent less energy, 85 percent less water, and 76 percent less waste than your standard acrylic beanie. The secret ingredient is a Polylana yarn, which is made from new and recycled polyester.
Kavu Herschel Beanie ($30)
If your style is more colorful, you’re going to love the Herschel beanie. Choose from wild patterns like ducks, raccoons, or narwhals. Whatever design you choose, the build is a simple but effective acrylic with an outgoing pom.
Emilime Dusk Beanie ($76)
The Emilime is hand knit from soft alpaca wool for ultimate comfort and warmth. Plus, the wool is ethically sourced from small farms in Peru, so you can feel good about wearing it around town.
Mammut Nordwand ($35)
The Nordwand is a performance-minded beanie that’s made from a poly-wood blend to keep you warm while also wicking moisture away from your head. It’s perfect for cross-country skiing or boot-packing to that untouched backcountry line.
Outdoor Research Transcendent Down ($46)
Is a down-puffy beanie overkill? We don’t think so. The Transcendent might be the warmest hat in your quiver thanks to the 650-fill down stuffed inside the ripstop poly shell.
