Beanies are back! This practical winter accessory is now a stylish must-have

They’re great for to and from the gym on cold mornings or chilly evenings. Not to mention the fact they double as a weekend solution to bad hair days! But the best thing about beanies? They’ve just had a runway resurgence. Here, are our tips for what makes the perfect beanie.

It’s warm

This one seems obvious – beanies were designed to keep you toasty – but some toast better than others. Look for styles in quality fabrics such as pure wool and cashmere.

It’s slouchy

The perfect beanie has just the right amount of slouch. It’s up to you how you wear it – high on your head, or further back for a more nonchalant look.

It’s a bit edgy

When it comes to statement beanies, the rules are there are no rules. Go bold with prints and even metal hardware.
