When the cold weather hits us, people are always trying to stay warm but still be fashionable, and the beanie has become a very popular trend.  One particular type of beanie that I’ve seen all over college campuses is Love Your Melon beanies. These beanies are great because not only will they keep you warm, but also when you buy one, one is donated to a child battling cancer. You are styling yourself and someone else! People today are all about giving back; I have noticed so many fashion companies are being philanthropic, but Love Your Melon is the one that really makes a statement in the winter.

This Fashionista really knows how to add fashion to a beanie, and she is a huge Love Your Melon fan. She is rocking a navy dress with a beige beanie. Even though it is cold outside dresses are a great way to spice up your wardrobe and change things up on the days where the temperatures aren’t too low. She adds the accessory of the beanie to keep her warm. She is also wearing brown booties to match the beanie. Booties are another trend that is seen on most girls today. Booties add a touch of sophistication with a heel while still being casual and comfortable. Neutral color booties are an essential in every girl’s closet. To tie it all together, this Fashionista is wearing a statement necklace; this necklace really gives the outfit a pop of style. Statement necklaces are great to spice up any outfit.

By combining different trends this fashionista has a look that appears to be fancy yet casual. The outfit is a great daytime outfit. It is versatile for class or for a casual lunch date. It is a neutral outfit with hits of trending fashion. The Love Your Melon beanie is awareness for childhood cancer.
