As the temperature drops a little more each day, it’s important to find cold weather accessories that are both fashionable and warm.  Wintertime can be a bit of a challenge when temperatures drop below freezing and function starts to beat out fashion.  If you live in a cold climate, you probably share my excitement in discovering cute clothes and accessories that offer a lot of warmth.

The trapper hat is the newest cold weather accessory that is fashionable, but will actually do a great job in keeping you warm.  I’ve seen the trapper hats on a few of the fashion forward over the last few years, but now I’m finally ready to try one for myself!  My favorite styles are the trapper hats in chunky knit with faux fur lining and big ear flaps.  I like designs that aren’t too extremely puffy and large, and that utilize the fluffy faux fur just as a lining.

Here are some of my picks with elements like a fair isle knit pattern, fluffy pompoms, buffalo plaid, and super soft shearling lining.
