How to Wear a Beanie Like a Celebrity
Winter hats aren’t just about staying warm — they can also make a super-stylish fashion statement. Beanies have become the accessory du jour for A-listers, providing a nonchalant finishing touch to an ensemble, whether it’s winter or spring.
Wear them casually, à la Emily Ratajkowski and Joan Smalls, with other cool-girl accouterments like Yeezys and bomber jackets, or dress them up like Sutton Foster. The key here is to not treat your beanie as an add-on (even if you are just wearing one outdoors), but rather as a building block of your outfit. In fact, you can practically piece an entire look together around a simple beanie. Here, we break down how to wear it like a celebrity — and don’t worry, this kind of hat head is oh so chic.
Take the Casual Approach
Dress Up Your Beanie
