It might be a little late for me to write this, since we are in the middle of winter and probably most beanies have gone on clearance by now, but I just have to mention that I am completely obsessed with slouchy beanies. I have been for a long time, but this year I went a little overboard buying beanies. I love them because not only have they kept my head warm, but they have added to my wardrobe. I like to style mine like the woman in the photo, or at least that is how I would prefer to style mine. There have been times that I have been dressed down and have spiced up my outfit with just a beanie, a cute scarf, and flat boots.
You can create all kinds of looks with beanies. While I like the skater look, I think they can be so stylish with a thick scarf, sweater, skinny jeans, and a pair of lace up boots, or wedges. Check out the collage below.
On the other hand, I like the look of a slouchy beanie, leather jacket, t-shirt with a statement on it, skinny jeans, and a pair of boots or heels. Check out the collage below.
The length of your hair doesn’t matter either, and neither does its thickness. I have seen this look on women with short hair, curly hair, thick hair, and thin hair too and they all look good (I happen to have long, thin hair). Speaking of hair, did I mention that beanies come in handy when you are having a bad hair day? I am not going to lie, I have used them to cover up a bad hair day a time or two.
As far as the beanies I own, I just recently came across some really cute ones online, but this of course came after splurging on several that I purchased at Zumiez, while on vacation in December. I actually had a friend pretend to walk off with one of the beanies I got from there (not funny), had a consultant at a makeup counter ask me to write down the name of the store I bought it from, and my own mother went out looking for her own to purchase because she liked them so much. I am pretty sure that this won’t be the last of me buying. I can absolutely see myself buying more next winter. Check out the links to the ones in the featured photo below! What do you guys think about the slouchy beanie?
