These Stylish Winter Lids Do More Than Protect Us From The Elements

By Tess Weaver Strokes | January 8, 2021 | Style & Beauty

In a mountain town where fashion often surpasses function, winter hats— whether a suede cowboy hat or a cashmere beanie—remain a mandatory accessory for sun and snow protection. Here, four Aspenites share their lids of choice.


Kate Holstein: Moncler Casual Wool Beanie Photographer

“This elegant wool and cashmere ribbed beanie is as warm and versatile as it is elegant and sophisticated. It’s no secret I love white, and I like the tonal Moncler logo.” Moncler, 432 E. Hyman Ave., 970.544.5558,


Tara Marolda: Custom Hat Photographer

“No matter the season, my Aspen Hatter hat is my go-to accessory. There’s no better way to keep the Colorado sun off my face or snow from dusting my shoulders. This hat gets better with wear and age, and its unique design—carefully thought out by Clarity and myself—makes this hat a one-of-a-kind piece of art that reflects my personality more than any piece of fashion I own.” Aspen Hatter, 465 N. Mill St., Ste. 14,


Dana Laughren: Lovely Bird Montana Felt Fedora Buyer/merchandiser at Pitkin County Dry Goods

“Lovely Bird’s Montana wool felt hat comes in beautiful neutral colors with special stitching, vintage silk bands, feather trims and custom embroidery. The brim keeps snow from flying in my eyes when I bike to work, and it covers helmet hair for a polished, post-ski look.” Pitkin County Dry Goods, 520 E. Cooper Ave.,

May Selby: Skida Alpine Hat Public relations, The Little Nell; DJ by night

“Skida is a female-owned, Vermont-based company that makes cute, functional hats, headbands and neck warmers with fun patterns. The fleece-lined version fits under my helmet and warms my core temperature on cold ski days.”
