How was your week? It was a little cooler in Chicago so I decided to use it as an excuse to pull out my all-time favorite fall accessory, the beanie!
Seriously, if it were temperature-appropriate to wear what I consider the most perfect hat in the world all year round I definitely would. Along with a cropped leather jacket and a the Manolo Blahnik BB pointed toe pump (yes, I'm aware I live in a fantasy land) the right beanie is an effortless way to add style and comfort to every outfit.
And they're not just good for outside--a great beanie can keep you warm on planes, cold restaurants, movie theaters...hmm...what other goofy activities can I think of? The point is, you simply must own one, dahling.
Now, I'm a blonde so I tend to wear a lot of black. It just pops against my hair. But, if like Rachel Bilson, you have darker hair, I really recommend white or cream. Olive green and a deep teal or any other jewel tone will look great against any skin tone and hair color.
This year's newest addiction to my bean-lection (yes, my beanie collection) is a black hat with the word "MEOW" printed across the front in white capital letters. I thought it was so whimsical and funny when I saw it--especially since I am a self-proclaimed cat lady!
Are you guys wearing beanies this fall? Let us know @womensforum and tweet us a pic!
