Whether it’s for falling temps or a fashion statement, you’ve got have a solid beanie in your apparel arsenal. The concept seems simple: Grab a beanie to cover a bad hair day, battle the cold, top your perfect getup, and keep it handy when it’s time to build a snowman. The beanie comes in all sorts of knits, colors, and sizes, but the purpose is the same nine times out of 10: to keep warm (but some added style doesn’t hurt). Think of the beanie as a pair of socks for your head that will either complete or add a little flair to your look.
