While I might live in LA, that certainly does not mean we don't celebrate the traditions of winter. Namely, we still like to shop for the warmest beanies despite the temperatures typically staying within the 50s through 60s during the day. A friend of mine, a Southern California native, recently just told me that anything below 72 degrees calls for breaking out every article of winter clothing he might have. OK, so he's probably exaggerating just a touch, but everyone can relate to staying warm and cozy when it's cold, right?
Whatever your definition of cold weather is, it's no secret that having the warmest clothes will make you happier in the winter months. You've got your winter parka, your thermal, waffle-fabric leggings, and that oversized, chunky knit sweater. What more could you ask for when it comes to staying warm when the wind chill kicks in?
Enter the perfect beanie. Complement your winter get-up with something that will keep your head just as warm as the rest of your body. Luckily the fashion industry is creating beanies that not only keep you as warm as can be, but also remain cute and stylish, because you and I both know that style can be easily compromised when it comes to staying warm. Find some of the warmest, cutest beanies to get for when the temperatures drop, no matter where you are.
