The chilly winter wind gives us the official nod to wear warm beanies. Though it is a very versatile and practical accessory that can be worn with several outfits, here are our favorite picks for an effortless winter style.

Winter Casual Style with the Sweatshirt and Sweatpants Combo

Grey sweatpants and a white sweatshirt are the foundation of a chic casual winter look. Layer it with a charcoal grey oversized wool jacket and a beanie in the same color. It will bring a classy touch and a super warm feel to this baggy style outfit. Choose a classic ribbed white beanie for this look.

Styling the Beanie:

The sweatshirt outfit is laid back, so you can go with a simple low ponytail with the look and wear the white beanie over it. Fold the beanie’s hem once and pull it down from the sides to cover your ears properly.

Knit Top with High Waisted Jeans and a Brown Beanie

Grab a stylish brown knitted top and pair it with black high-waisted jeans. Tuck the front part of the top in the jeans and layer the outfit with a brown bomber jacket. Complete this brown outfit look with a matching slouchy beanie.

Styling the Beanie:

Spiral curls (no matter if they are natural or styled) is a hairstyle that makes your hair look voluminous while portraying a distinctive style. Girls with curly hair find it arduous to style their hair with accessories. Thankfully, the beanie is an excellent choice for them when they want to add a style element to their looks. 

Choose a beanie with a slouch and wear it a little away from your head. Bring a portion of your hair to the front from one side to divide the volume of your hair and make them manageable if they are long. 

If your hair is short and curly, bring out a few curls from the front on your forehead and let the rest of them frame your face for a charming look. 

Black Turtleneck and Jeans with a Fur Bomber Jacket and a Yellow Beanie

Here is a luxurious winter look for the contemporary fashionista. Team up a black turtleneck and grey distressed jeans, and a long fur bomber jacket in vivid colors, such as yellow. Style your hair in loose curls and wear a yellow pompom beanie on top of it for an elegant yet ritzy look.

Styling the Beanie:

When you have short hair, you should position a beanie in such a way that it reveals all of your foreheads. You can also push your beanie all the way to the nape of your neck so that it’s slouch covers the back of your head.

Bring the hair forward from both sides for a chic look. Make sure you fluff out some of the hair on the front.

Leather Jacket and Scarf Outfit with a Beanie

A very trendy and practical winter look combines a women’s leather jacket and scarf look with a beanie. Choose winter-appropriate shades like maroon, dark brown, tan, blue, or purple for this outfit, and wear the beanie in the end for an instantly uplifting style. 

Styling the Beanie:

Part your hair in the middle and braid both sections till a little above the ends. Make sure to leave a few bangs or strands of hair as it is from the front. Tease the braids a bit for a messy, chunky look.

Now wear your crocheted, baggy beanie, and push it a bit back to cover half of your ears. Adjust your front bangs to finish off the look elegantly. 

Wrapping Up the Beanie Guide

There is no doubt in the fact that a beanie keeps your hair and ears protected from the harsh winter winds. However, we cannot brush off its importance as a stylish accessory. Choose a few stylish beanies for your wardrobe and use them to style your glamorous outfits, as suggested in this blog.
