Since winters are coming, beanies are a critical component of winter style, but they frequently go unnoticed. Yes, it’s critical to wear them for utility—freezing it’s out there—but you can still have some fun with them. Whether you purchase multicoloured beanies or alter the way you style them, it is possible to make this seasonal cap functional as well as fashionable. As someone who has spent far too many winters wearing the same dull beanie, I can attest to this. She was grey and itchy and hersed at me every time I attempted to put her on, I swear. I’ve since tossed her and replaced her with a rotating collection of brightly coloured, uniquely shaped beanies. Winter arrives! I’m cold and depressed, and a hot-pink beanie cheers me up.
I’m telling you, the correct technique to wear a cute beanie will distract you from the near-freezing weather outside. Perhaps not—you will still shudder, but you will do so in a more fashionable manner. Here are five simple tips inspired by recent celebrity beanie styles.
This is the most effective means of keeping warm. Wrap the beanie around your head without cuffing it, allowing it to cover your ears. The front should be level with your brows.
This one is ideal for days when your hair is curly and for casual workplace situations. Cuff the beanie once and place it on top of your head, halfway down your ears.
The traditional fisherman’s style has become a hipster staple. Twice roll or cuff the beanie and place it on top of your head. You can wear it forward or backwards, depending on how much hair is visible from underneath.
This expression conveys the message, “I am not cold; I am cool.” Wear the beanie as high as possible on your head. Allow it to hang above your ears, maintaining a vertical and well-rounded shape throughout.
If you’re feeling creative, leave the front of the beanie uncuffed and cuff once in the back. The cuff should be angled such that it begins and ends at either ear.
Wear the beanie as far back as possible, allowing the additional fabric to slump in the back. Cover your ears and let a tuft of hair emerge in front.
