In my pre-mama days, I often looked at girls who wore hats as a different breed. Sure, I wore them as a necessity -- beach, running, cold weather -- but nowadays, I find myself reaching for a topper more and more. Not so much because I want to make a statement but rather to make sure my unruly post-pregger hair isn't making one. As we all know from the hat girls not afraid to make a statement, this one little accessory can really pull together a look. Especially when a look involves your winter coat.

And if you happen to be pregger a hat is a beautiful thing. Unlike everything else (including your feet) that might grow multiple sizes when you're pregnant, you can trust your head will remain the same size winter after winter.

Here are 6 hats bringing out the hat girl in us this season.
