The best beanies
- If your winter coat is lacking a hood or if you want an extra layer to keep your head warm, a good beanie is your best bet.
The North Face Shinsky Beanie is the casual, warm, slouchy winter hat you've been waiting for. The best part? It's reversible, so it goes with everything in your wardrobe. You might not take it off until springtime.
I love beanies more than any other winter hat style. They give you that cool, casual hipster look sure, but most importantly they're usually pretty warm. Of course there is the issue of hat hair - a lot of beanies tend to be close-fitting so that they trap heat against your scalp and actually stay on your head.
But beanies are also stylish enough that you can just leave them on inside. Two birds, one stone, right?
The word "beanie" is kind of one of those catch-alls that encompasses a ton of different styles, from slouchy cuts to ultra-fitted ones with a variety of embellishments and fabric variations. The sheer number of options is overwhelming. After all, when you can buy a beanie anywhere, how do you narrow it down?
