I don’t know about you, but I’m having the hardest time staying present with winter. All I want is sandals and shorts and spring! :)
So how about if we keep going with another dose of winter outfit inspiration? (In case you missed the last one, you can find it here — we looked at five ways to style a long cardigan.)
Whenever I’m itching for a new season, I find it calming and helpful to look back on some of my favorite outfits of the season and remember how much I loved wearing them — especially that first time! Remembering how excited I was helps me find a new appreciation and energy for them.
This time, we’ll be looking at four ways I’ve styled my beanie this fall + winter.
This little copper colored beanie became a friend to all of my neutral pieces. It brought warmth and a bit of unexpected color anywhere it went.
From top to bottom, left to right:
1 | WITH A GREY + BLACK COLOR PALETTE
Grey and black make for an easy color palette when you’re not sure what to wear. Start with a grey sweater and a pair of black jeans. Then, warm up this neutral/cool color palette with a cognac beanie and tote.
2 | CUFF-FREE
If you’re into it, try wearing your beanie sans cuff. The long beanie look is a little quirky, but sometimes it’s fun to try things that seem a little off. Counterbalance the quirk by styling it with classic pieces, like a turtleneck sweater and a pair of high rise skinnies. Then pull it all together with a tote and booties in the same shade as your beanie. (You could easily try the matching look with black or taupe accessories, too.)
3 | WITH A FLANNEL TIED AROUND YOUR WAIST
A beanie + flannel make for an understated casual-cool pairing. Start with distressed jeans and a simple white sweater, and tie a flannel around your waist. To finish the look, try matching your booties to your beanie. It serves as color “bookends” to the top and bottom of the outfit — something I’m really in to right now.
4 | PAIRED WITH OVERALLS AND A SWEATER
Overalls are a statement enough on their own, but if you want to play around even more, add a beanie on top. Keep your color palette neutral, like I did here with a grey + denim combo. Then add your statement beanie, and you’re good to go!
There you have it! Tomorrow, we’ll take a look at three ways I styled my oversized grey sweater (and I’ll share three of my favorite color palettes for it). See you then!
