Firstly I just wanna say that until recently I HATED beanies, I think it was because of their hipster connotations, the fact that people were wearing them during summer and that a lot of them were branded with: “YOLO” or “LOL” – which I cannot be doing with. In all honesty I think the thing which ‘turned me’ to beanies was having a 9am lecture on a Monday morning every week, meaning that I’d usually wake up late, stumble to the kitchen for breakfast, maybe have a shower if I had time, slap on a bit of foundation and whatever clothes are lying around. I don’t like having to choose between either having to go in with greasy hair or no make up so I feel like the beanie is a perfect disguise for the tragic 9am bad hair days.
Okay so why should you invest?…
- They’re so cheap, mine was about £3 from Primark and it’s soooooo snug!
- They’re warm and stop your ears getting frostbite and falling off – never a good look guys, trust me
- BAD HAIR DAY DISGUISE
- You can get away with wearing them alongside most autumn/winter outfits, especially in black
- They’re practical AND make your forehead look significantly smaller, I know this because mine is HUGE!
Topshop have got a pretty good selection of them at the moment, I particularly like the cable knit ones, might have to treat myself again…
