During the winter, knitted caps are important part of one’s clothing. It may be small but it is helping in giving warmth. During the cold season, it is really very hard to become fashionable. I rather call the beanie hats as Beret caps. I don’t know if there is a difference between the two. All I know is that they are knitted caps for the winter. As a matter of fact, some would simply call it as wool caps or knit caps. You can use this cap on various outfits- whether it is for a day occasion or night.
I find myself having difficulty finding fashionable beanie. Yes, there are many beanies around but I like to find the one that fits me well and have the “slouchy” effect. Designer brands are complete with beanies but they are so expensive. I have to hunt these hats in thrift shops. Marc Jacobs, Christian Dior, L.A.M.B. and Burberry has this fashion accessory but it’s way too expensive. I’d rather buy on online stores like eBay.
Those beanies with ear flaps are also very appealing to me. While it serves its purpose, which is to give warmth, it is also fashionable at the same time. It’s like giving the aura of being fun and carefree. This fashion accessory has become popular in Hollywood also. Now that fedoras and skull caps are out, these beret caps are the new trend. Among the celebs seen sporting this hat are Rachel Bilson, Mary-Kate Olsen, Keira Knightley, Beyonce and many more. Even guys like Zac love it too!
