Fight the Freeze with a Trapper Hat

3 Feb that Make a Big Flap

They may be the hat of choice in rugged frontiers like the Yukon and Siberia, but trapper hats are a new find in chilly urban centers this winter.

Perfect for the current frigid temperatures across the globe, this stylish accessory is warming up celebrities like Rihanna, Elle MacPherson, and Lily Allen.

Trapper hats not only keep you warm (around 10 per cent of body heat is lost through the head in cold weather), the sassy hat with ear flaps can be the centerpiece of your outerwear.

A shearling sheepskin trapper hat made famous by the Canadian Winter Olympic team can be worn with the ear flaps down or folded back with leather ties. If the real thing isn’t for you, try a lightweight faux fur version with ear flaps that can be worn up or down.

This year’s version of the trapper hat shows the latest Fair Isle trend. The Intarsia hat from Urban Outfitters has velcro earflaps and a sherpa lining.
