Up your beanie game this winter
Hats are one of those funny accessories that suit some people and just look ridiculous on others – I am the latter in most cases. With winter coming (insert Game of Thrones reference), sometimes a jacket and thick socks aren’t enough when that wind chill factor smacks you in the face like an ice truck. The good news, is that beanies are one type of accessory that both keep you warm and can up your streetstyle game a bit. It’s all in the way you wear it.
Everyone has different shaped and sized heads so the best thing to do is try on a few different styles of beanies and see which suits you best. You can also take any old beanie you have and make some minor adjustments to make it look different. Below are some examples of beanie styles you can try (some of the styles are a combination of 2 different styles):
1. The fisherman – This is my favourite current style as you can wear it with smart casual or streetstyle clothing and it looks great. Ideally you roll your beanie above your ears but if they stick out then you can put them slightly over
2. The slouchback – This style is a larger beanie with no fold that falls back and just hangs. This looks good for people with well defined jaws and beard stubble
3. The straight up – You can just put the beanie straight on your head, trying to gain as much height as possible. Single, double or no fold – it doesn’t really matter
4. The pom pom – This style is a bit less trendy but still fun, great for the snow
I hope this helped any of you who believed you are cursed to never wear hats… be bold!
