The best tuques, beanies and hats that will keep you stylish—and warm Image by: Free People
Keeping warm doesn't mean sacrificing style—even when it's just your winter hat.
Much like our other winter wear (boots, scarves, jackets), we really need our hats to keep us warm. That's priority number one. But, it helps when our head-topper picks are also stylish. Because when the weather gets cold—we're talking really, really, cold—you can't get away with ditching your tuque to save a good hair day. So you may as well find a tuque you love. One that's cute, trendy and reflects your personal sartorial tastes—and one that also happens to keep you warm.

Executive assistant Linda Gill was worried frills would be too much volume—we proved her wrong.

Have you ever flirted with the idea of trying a daring style but weren't quite sure how to pull it off? We found six women who were intrigued by a trend they usually avoid, then we gave them the support and style advice to help them make it their own. Here, executive assistant Linda Gill tries ruffles on for size—despite her fear that they would be overwhelming.
After nearly a decadelong hiatus, flirty, structured and seriously romantic ruffles have gathered momentum as the "it" detail of the season. At its core, flounces of fabric are classic, a seemingly natural fit for Linda's traditional-with-a-twist style. But a ruffle, especially on a blouse, leaves her with mixed emotions. "I love ruffles because they're so feminine, but they can be overpowering," says Linda. "I'm big-busted, and I think they accentuate that area."

If you have a larger bust, wearing ruffles is entirely possible—and it can look incredibly chic. The trick is placement: Avoid ruffles at or around the bustline, since they can add extra bulk; instead, look for an open neckline with vertical ruffles or follow our lead and pick a blouse with tiered ruffles on the sleeves. Counteract the soft flounces with a structured pair of trousers in a wild print or a vibrant colour; an unexpected shade like fuchsia or bright orange can make all the difference in transforming ruffles from precious to powerful.
