We have all been (or beanie) there …. You love the look, you have the beanie … but you put it on and just think "HELL NO – this isn’t working". So I thought I would write a blog about how to wear a beanie this winter.


Now, when I start a blog – I always like to google the topic I want to blog about so that I can see what is out there on the topic and try a different approach. So in researching “how to wear a beanie” I was totally fascinated by the fact that there is a MASTER CLASS Article on this topic. OMG!!!


Clearly, this is something a lot of people wonder about.


The reason I wanted to write this blog is that I so often hear people say “but a beanie (or hat) just does not work on me. I say NONSENSE…. There is a beanie (and hat) for every person. You just need to find what works for you and how to wear it properly ….


But before I get into the ways to wear/style your beanie this winter … I just have to share with you that in the Master Class Article, they go so far as defining the different types of beanies. Apparently, there are 6 types of beanies:


  1. Cuffed beanie: These knit caps feature a brimmed cuff. The wearer can fold the cover their ears for extra warmth.
  2. Cuffless beanie: Some people also call cuffless beanies, which are tight-fitting, skullcaps.
  3. Earflap beanie: An earflap beanie features extra fabric that extends over the ears for additional coverage. The earflaps often feature a fleece lining.
  4. Novelty beanie: These beanies feature logos or slogans. Novelty beanies are popular in street style and streetwear and can make a bold fashion statement.
  5. Pom-pom beanie: Also known as bobble hats or bobble beanies, pom-pom beanies, a have a fur or knit pom-pom or bobble attached to the top.
  6. Slouchy beanie: Beanies with extra material at the top are known as high-top beanies, slouch beanies, or hipster beanies. These loose-fitting beanies sit at the top of the wearer’s ears.
