When I think essential fall items, hats are among my top pick! With so many selections it’s hard to go wrong; whether you have a girly, laid-back or edgy style, there are hats for everyone. The casual headpiece is a quick and practical way to top off your outfit. Hats are easy, fun and can be styled in so many ways to go with any look. As the weather gets colder, keep warm and trap in your body heat with a cozy beanie! The chill ski slope inspired hats transition from the mountains to everyday wear, whether strolling to class or keeping warm on a chilly night in the city.
The Fashionista I spotted was looking calm, cool and collected, effortlessly displaying a super cute leopard print beanie. She kept the outfit relaxed by wearing a simple white T-shirt, a gray button-up cardigan, black skinny jeans and some edgy boots. I love that this Fashionista is mixing a little bit of glam with her overall nonchalant outfit, creating even more emphasis on her hat. She bought her Knoxville Oversized Beanie from Free People, a retailer who has plenty more where that one came from!
The best part about beanies is how versatile they are, and there are so many celebrities to prove jus that. Pop diva, Rihanna was spotted rocking a printed pompom beanie to the airport while model Dree Hemingway was seen sporting a bright orange beanie front row at Paris Fashion Week. If you’re looking for a cheap beanie check out Topshop or Hat Attact and if you’re trying to splurge Lanvin and Mulberry are the places to shop.
Spotted: Many designers have incorporated the ski bum beanies into their runway shows. Lacoste's Felipe Oliveira Baptista designed some super chic hats for the fall 2012 RTW runway show that went along with his ski resort-inspired collection.
