Beanies are a great fallback winter accessory, but I never found them to be super flattering. "Your Look: Q&A" in the November issue opened up my eyes to the range of style possibilities. I took a cue from the page—and the Gucci runway—and opted for a navy one boasting a matching pom-pom. My distressed skinny jeans and striped Breton top pick up the cool blue tones, and leopard print accents add some unexpected pattern play.
