When it comes to cold-weather headgear, the beanie has it all

Oh, the beanie. This headgear staple takes center stage when the weather starts to turn cooler…then colder. While its origins are deeply rooted in history – it’s as popular with old-school academics as it is with blue-collar workers looking to stay warm – the beanie feels totally of the moment. It’s able to rival any other piece of headwear with its modern style, flexibility to fit a diversity of aesthetics, and practical ability to warm your dome.



The beanie, though, carries with it a practicality beyond just cold-weather protection: For those days the sun shines bright, but not warm, the beanie serves as a barrier from the UV rays. From a style perspective, the beanie accents a variety of fashion choices: It can go from the street to the golf course and even to more casual workplaces more easily than a ballcap. A range of colors and constructions allow you to mix and match it with the rest of your fashion choices. Whether you opt for a classic wool knit or dip into a more fashion-forward leather or silk, you’re sure to find one that fits your style—even if you like those puffy pom-pom balls on top.

But if there’s one thing that really sells us on the beanie, it’s the fact that it’s so comfortable. Practical, stylish and actually enjoyable to wear? It’s a true fashion trifecta. Depending on the style and material chosen, there’s no reason this “winter” accessory can’t find its way into your wardrobe early in fall and stick around well into spring. Long live the beanie.
