My theory is that as long as your head, neck and torso are warm you can sort of survive sock-less in the winter (for short spans of time at least!), yet I can't live without a hat in the cold British winter. I wear one most days and the only style that looks any decent on me (I'm not a hat person) is the classic pom pom beanie. I bought my navy wool one last year in Florence from a random shop and would be devastated if I lost it, lots of you have asked me where to find a similar one so here's WIT's edit. Most of them come in a few colours so make sure you look out for your perfect shade and.. the bigger the pom pom the better!
