James Devaney

While hats are in heavy rotation all year long, their true time to shine is the cold-weather months (how could we keep warm without them?).

Here, take a look at how everyone from Cara to Kendall to Taylor styles their tresses underneath beanies, fedoras and the like.

Yes, short-haired girls can wear beanies. Taylor keeps her lob perfectly sideswept underneath her knit chapeau.

Bella Hadid

She hopped on the dad-hat bandwagon and keeps her mane loose so it doesn't interfere with the cap's silhouette.

Bey is the ultimate proof that loose hair and low ponies aren't the only style options for hats. Her braids are everything with her Gucci cap.

Chrissy Teigen

Also a fan of the braids combo, she opts for a solo sideswept plait underneath her wide-brim hat.

Kate Middleton

The duchess probably owns more hats and bonnets than we can count. She's a pro, even incorporating some spiraled waves under her pinned beret.

Joan Smalls

The supermodel typically shifts between straight strands, curls and a variety of updos. When it comes to hat day, she keeps it simple.
