26 Street Style-Approved Ways to Wear Your Favorite Winter Beanie

If you live in a place where the winters get absolutely frigid, you know winter beanies are an absolute must-own. But you probably also know the question of how to wear a winter beanie—or at least, how to wear a winter beanie fashionably—is a genuinely complex one. Because nothing ruins a sophisticated chic look—or a carefully coiffed hairdo, for that matter—like a winter beanie.

I’ve owned a beanie since I moved to New York three years ago, and I’ve yet to figure out how to style it. Cramming it on my head once I’ve already thrown an outfit together creates a disastrous motley crew of an ensemble, and letting my beanie lead the sartorial way always results in a kind of skater-streetwear aesthetic that I definitely don’t identify with. My winter beanie keeps my head so warm and cozy that I can’t bear to part with it, but the effect it’s had on my wardrobe is tragic, at best.

It was with hope in my heart that I turned to the street style-scape to see if fashion’s most creative minds had solved the seemingly unending dilemma of how to look cute in a winter beanie. And, true to form, they had. There were winter beanie outfits designed for every aesthetic—no matter how dainty, feminine or proper. The question of how to wear a winter beanie was no longer un-answerable—for me, for you or for anyone else who’d ever posed it.

I’m genuinely obsessed with this high-fashion take on the beanie outfit. I wasn’t aware beanies could make be worn as statement pieces—until I saw one paired with red boots and a millennial pink tutu skirt and a bright blue faux fur collar.
