This winter has been one of Atlanta’s coldest, or maybe I just didn’t have a great coat. Regardless, my extremities have been urging me to invest in some good cold weather accessories for the last few weeks. From leather gloves to fur snoods, there are a number of classic accessories worth drooling over; however, the trendiest of all is still the beanie.
From Cara Delevigne to Rihanna, everyone is wearing a beanie these days, and why not?! They’re perfect for bad hair days and make you look edgy without trying too hard. This week’s Fashionista rocks her simple black beanie with a classic ensemble of a pea coat, wine colored jeans and combat boots. It’s effortless and simple, yet maintains that cool girl style that girls spend hours trying to perfect.
Beanies are so versatile that there are a number of style options. This Madewell version is great for a more feminine Fashionista and the thick knit will keep you warm. For a floppier version, Free People’s pom pom option is whimsical and warm – what’s not to love?
Rock it with your favorite skinny jeans, T-shirt and combat boots for a simple and edgy look, or opt for something more assertive with a leather legging and a flannel. The beauty of such a simple hat is that you can wear it however it suits you. While at first glance it may seem exclusively tomboyish, anyone can wear it!
In the end, the clothes don’t wear you. You wear them. Feel free to step outside of your comfort zone and try out this season’s hottest headgear.
