Top Headwear Trends A/W 15/16

With temperatures dropping and rain turning into snow, it is definitely now “hat weather.” However, we all know that hats and headwear do much more than keep our heads warm – they make a fashion statement. Hats are a fun accessory which can transform an outfit. However, unlike knitted woolly hats, some headwear comes in and out of fashion each year so it’s difficult to stay on trend. Here’s a roundup of some of the best headwear trends for this season:


Fedora hats have been seen on the catwalk and on the high street for a while, but they have never been as popular as they are right now. The brimmed style of hat can be worn all year round, but as it’s available in so many autumnal styles, from brown and beige to burgundy and camel, it’s the perfect hat for A/W. The fedora is a great style piece because it can be worn with practically any outfit, even if you are trying to look smart. From shopping and lunch with the girls to a chilly walk with the dog, the fedora is a girl’s best friend.

French Beret

Oh la la, this season’s trends have been heavily inspired by French fashion. Berets were seen on the catwalks this year in all sorts of colours and fabrics, and trendsetters everywhere have been wearing them for years. The hat, which can be worn straight or on the side, is an easy way to add interest to any ensemble.


The beanie hat is a winter classic – it’s definitely the most practical type of hat. Knitted hats were also seen on the A/W catwalks, in a variety of styles and patterns. Cute beanies are ideal for walking around Christmas markets, long winter walks and making snowmen! Why not copy some of the trends from the designers at the fashion shows, by asking one of our grannies to replicate the style?

Furry trapper hats

Another practical style for winter, we are loving trapper hats this season. The distinctive furry design helps you keep warm in style. When the freezing temperatures arrive, you really will be thankful of a trapper hat – it is also quite an elegant hat to wear, suiting women of all ages.
