Ky Thick Knit Beanie - Tan
Your beanies make a statement when they include a rose gold pin like the Ky does - this classy accent will let you dress your beanie up with any + all of your preferable knit turtlenecks + pleated wool trousers.
Go street + chic with the mo pom beanie - dusty sage. Match colors in the same family to create an original green look from head to toe. Throw on your faux fur coat for that extra flair, or dress it up with a wool oversized blazer.
Blush is that soft + timeless neutral that will go with absolutely anything in your wardrobe. Paired with other neutrals like white + tan, your beautiful blush beanie will add a subtle touch of color.
Watch out for beanies that have a loose-knit if you really want to stay nice + toasty. Get yourself a high-quality beanie that is made using a tight-knit so the bitterness of winter can’t get through.
Look for chunky knit styles — the thicker the material, the better it will be able to insulate + keep the heat trapped in for you as you’re snowshoeing through the hills.
Warm ears can do wonders for keeping you comfortable on an extra chilly day. Be on the lookout for beanies that are designed to cover your ears. Some beanies are intentionally made to be longer + some beanies can be folded down over your ears.
Winter calls for all the coziness you can get + that’s especially what you want out of a wonderful winter hat. One of the keys to really staying at the temperature you’re happy with is to get a beanie that will be thick enough to trap in all the hot air, but breathable enough so that you won’t get overheated.

Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Adjustable Inner Band Instructions
Flip up the sweatband to find the Velcro tab + pull to tighten. Velcro the ribbon back in place to secure your desired fit. The adjustable band can adjust the hat up to 5 cm when necessary! Some helpful tips about our adjustable inner band-
Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
