After spending a long weekend shivering in Seattle’s freezing fog, I’ve suddenly rediscovered my appreciation for the beanie! They’re lightweight, portable, functional, and apparently the accessory de jour!
It’s rather easy to keep the look quite casual. Simply slip on a pair of print jeans, a vintage tee and a brightly hued bomber jacket. It’s urban chic at its best. The more challenging task is to take the beanie in a sophisticated direction, but, as the monochromatic ensemble above illustrates, it can be done.
Black on black on black is relatively fool proof and the pointy-toed heel will always take your outfit to a professional professional level. Bonus: beanies are also a great solution for a bad hair day!
I’m very tempted to create a little beanie collection. You’d want a variety of options to suit the changes in your sartorial mood, right? What do you think? Are you a fan of the beanie? Would you rock one to the office??
