ALL IN THE DETAILS: Be(anie) Yourself

Snow can be fun, but only when you get to enjoy it with sledding and hot chocolate. Unfortunately, going to a school in the Northeast, where snow is a regular occurrence on campus, class isn’t always dismissed. The wintry morning walks to class can cause many to despise its presence. But there is no way of avoiding it, so I say embrace it with a cute winter hat! Beanies are a major trend right now. Not only are they a cute accessory, but they are also a unique way to express yourself! Here we see this Fashionista accurately expressing her style with a winter beanie that says “Killin’ It.” These beanies can be found with almost any saying on them and some websites even teach you how to make your own.

This Fashionista decided to pair her beanie with a puffy UNIQLO coat, Rebecca Minkoff bag, leggings and cozy snow boots. This outfit is super comfortable, but it is also trendy because of her amazing accessories. It’s perfect for the incredibly cold, early morning walks to class.

However, if you are like myself and find the bold words too drastic for your style, try finding one with a design or embellishment. Along with words, these beanies can be found adorned with studs, rhinestones, embroidery, bows, cat ears and more. They also come in a variety of colors. If you want it, the beanie’s got it!

How To: The possibilities with beanies are endless! My advice is to first find one that fits your personality, whether it be with a word, a phrase or chic design. These beanies are all about self-expression, so find or make one that shows the world who you are. If you want a more structured look than this Fashionista’s comfy style, try the beanie with a moto leather jacket, skinny jeans and a pair of fashionable canvas sneakers. An ensemble like this will be sure to complement your beanie perfectly.
