A Basic Beanie: Four Different Looks

Hey girlies! When Winter comes around to greet us, you gotta be prepare. Some days the wind is so strong, your hair is raping your face [you pretend that you're in a hair commercial but no]...mmmhmm it ain't cute. So when times like these happens, beanies come in very handy. I never used to wear a beanie because I was very pedantic with how my hair looks. However, this season I've been spotting so many cute beanies that I just couldn't resist to include it into my outfits for winter. I purchased this very plain and simple black beanie from H&M, which I think compliments different outfits really well. I will now show you how I incoperate it into my outfits.
That Monochromatic Chick
You can never go wrong with the black and white theme. I think I look kinda like a prisoner with the black and white stripes top but it's cool. This is just a classic, casual look. Life isn't always black and white, there's also a grey silver lining to it [ohh, I'm so wise]. Therefore, I incoperated the grey with the knitted, sleeveless cardigan and a knitted infinity scarf. Keep it extra cozy. This look works because the beanie is in the same color family [no, black isn't a color but you know what I'm trying to say], which compliments the whole outfit. If you were to wear a fluro pink beanie, it just wouldn't work. However, if you want to incoperate an accent piece to the outfit, you can accessorize with jewelry. What I have done here, is I have the gold accent on my boots which just adds something extra to the outfit without overpowering it. 

Khaki with A Dash of Tartan
 
Another simple, put together look. Perfect for a casual day out running errands or to Uni. It's so comfy but you still look chic at the same time. I am not a fan of wearing jeans to Uni [Who's with me?]. I pretty much live in pants, leggings or jeggings... The combination of khaki and tartan works very well together in this particular outfit. You want to keep the colours to a minimal, otherwise they will clash against each other. Use black as your base. The beanie just complete the look. 

Preppy Meets Edgy

This look is for all you daring girlies out there. It's preppy up top, party time down the bottom with a bit of edginess. I love the contrast between the faux leather and the soft knit. Long/ knee-high boots are perfect for winter and so on trend. Knits can be chunky and bulky to wear. The trick is to pair it with more fitted pieces. Here, I tucked it into the faux leather pencil skirt. I folded the bottom of the sweater in half, instead of rolling it to prevent from looking bulgy. Wearing a nice cotton shirt underneath the sweater adds that preppy touch.
Day to Night Fun

I really like this outfit because it's perfect for both day and night time. I think adding a cute pair of tights like the sparkly ones I have on makes the outfit extra fun. A classic trench coat is a must to not only keep you warm but it's also a versatile piece. Whether you choose to drape it over your shoulders, or layering up, you will be sure to look chic. Black or Navy trench coats will instantly make you look edgier. 

There we have it lovelies! I had so much fun putting this little lookbook together. Hopefully I have given you some ideas as to how to incorporate a basic beanie into different outfits. Which look is your fave?

  12. Lovely outfits!! All of them ;) Think I like the last one most. I was thinking...why would you dress so warm for summer but then I saw ".blogspot.com.au" :P It's in the middle of summer here in the Netherlands. I can't wait for the fall/winter season though. It's my favorite season: beanie season.

  18. I love beanies on a whole! They provide a stylish and effortless look to any outfit while still having a bit of grungy edginess to it. You have done a really good job in showing us the beanies don't have to be 100% edgy (although they will always provide a laid-back approach to those bad hair days that we sometime suffer from!) They can also be preppy, sporty, or even feminine as well! I couldn't pick a favourite out of all of these looks so I love them all! They're all so beautiful! Because I have so many beanies in my collection, I'm now looking into beanies with detailing in them such as rips, spikes, or even a funky pattern! Perhaps you can do another post on how to style such a beanie?
