Oh, bad hair days. How you love to make our hearts sink when we wake up in the morning and see the messy mop of hair in the mirror. You’ve broken hairbrushes, snapped hair elastics and stopped us from getting that topknot just top-knotty enough.
Sometimes our hair just won’t agree to behave. It’s kinky, frizzy or just plain old won’t stay put in whatever style you try. The solution? Stop swearing at your reflection and just bang on a beanie.
Beanies aren’t just for winter. Now that we’re starting to see some sunshine, you can still totally rock a beanie during the springtime. After all, a beanie’s magical power of hiding a bad hair day is always effective! For extra sartorial points, choose a beanie in a bright, beaming colour like this Fashionista’s.
Bright hues are always popular in spring, and it’s awesome to see a Fashionista that has dared to go bold with her headwear. The beanie alone makes her entire outfit stand out in a crowd (or a lecture theatre, which is where I spotted her). By keeping the rest of her outfit black, aside from her gorgeous yellow bag, her neon pink beanie is the center of attention.
Beanies really are a college student style essential, and they’re such an inexpensive addition to your wardrobe. This Fashionista told me she bought hers for $10 from a market stall at the Splendour In The Grass Music Festival. They easily add a cool and laid-back vibe to your outfit. Just ask miss Cara Delevigne, the beanie queen of chic!
A quirky micro-trend that’s been making the style rounds is beanies with ears, which adds a touch of cuteness to an outfit. For Fashionistas looking to make a statement, why not try a beanie with a slogan printed on the front or an embellished beanie? People will be keen as a bean to compliment you!
Spotted: DKNY has been(ie) there and done that, having showcased black beanies in the same silhouette as this Fashionista’s pink one in their fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection.
