Fear Not the Trapper Hat: 9 Versions to Convince You of Its Cool Factor

Dec 11 2012 - 3:33am

We admit it: trapper hats can be intimidating. It's daring enough to wear a regular hat, but one with wild fur and long ear flaps? It's a toughie; we get it. But we're here to put an end to any of your hesitations and encourage your stylish foray into trapper hats. Why? Aside from being the best possible hats to ward off the Winter chill, they're also surprisingly adorable. Just check out Jessica Alba [1] looking wintry-cool in her furry trapper hat while in London. They're also the ultimate in fashion-meet-function — what better way to battle the cold and disguise a bad hair day at the same time? The key to working a trapper hat without looking silly is to really own it; exude major confidence, and keep the rest of your outfit a little sleeker (read: avoid layers of plaid and shearling, unless you're going for lumberjack-chic). Ready? Then get clicking. These nine trapper hats were made for staying warm and looking cool.
