Be it rain, wind or shine, to me a beanie is just as much a stylish accessory as a handbag or banging pair of stilettos.
Let’s face it, they are cool, edgy, fun, go with smart or casual and they can cover up a multitude of bad hair days!
My beanie love propelled during the neon phase when I purchased a pink one, and if you see my Instagram feed (my_wardrobe_utopia – plug plug, ahem!), you’ll see that I style it quite a lot!
Since then, I have added a few to my collection and I love styling up or down an outfit with one of these mop toppers!
My favourite recent outfits with a beanie were faux leather trousers, camouflage jacket with sequin sleeves, & black strappy stilettos and the other was skinny jeggings, black h&m jumper, holographic office pumps and zara camel coat with leather sleeves. 2 completely different looks with 1 hat!
In the winter I’m constantly looking for ways to style ‘up’ my outfits and I find the beanie is the perfect accessory to do just that. Amazing colours to brighten up a one colour outfit, jewels to add some sparkle and gold chains to add some edge.
They take me right through to spring for the cooler days too when I perhaps ditch the coat and go for a light jumper and jeans. In contrast I’ve also been wearing mine out coastal walking with a nice warm coat, boots, jeans and ultra cool sunglasses.
Check out a few of my favs below!
My latest addition and perhaps the most beautiful is from United Colours of Benetton and for those of you in the UK and local to Truro in Cornwall, they are holding a special party night this Wednesday from 5.30pm in aid of Cancer Research. Tickets are £5 and includes bubbles and a 30% off everything sale! Go check it out!
