When the weather's cold, the place where we lose most of our heat from is our head. That's what we were told when growing up at least, but it's actually not true. Scientists have debunked that myth. Having something warm and fuzzy on your head still helps keep you warm, though. Even if it's not half of your heat escaping.
Beanies for men and women have been used for hundreds of years. So much so that during the 15th and 16th century, in England and Wales, everyone had to buy and use one by law. Although today it's not mandated by anyone, having a beanie is a great way of staying warm out on the street during chilly days. It's also a great way to add a bit of style and flair to your outfit.
Beanies come in all shapes and sizes. From loose to tight, you'll definitely find a beanie that fits you best. They're made out of all kinds of materials. You should go with what's best for the weather you're facing. Wool is a favourite for colder climates. Cotton works great when it's not so cold yet. You can also look for something made out of a smart fabric. These fabrics are more breathable in case they get moist, and, they're just as effective in keeping you warm
Matching a winter outfit is a great opportunity to experiment with different textures and colours. When looking at patterns, try to have some variation between your beanie and jacket. If the beanie's and jacket's patterns are too similar or about the same size, they'll create an overly busy and cluttered look.
As for colours, you can choose whatever you're in the mood for. A contrast between your jacket and beanie works great. A good rule of thumb is to try and match your shirt's colour with your men's beanie. That way, your jacket, shirt, and beanie are all complementary. If you want to simply not think about it too much, you can go with neutral colours. Black, white, grey and some tones of beige can work great for men's beanies. These colours allow you to get a lot of mileage out of your beanie. They're easy to mix and match with most colour families and palettes.
The best thing you can do is to experiment and figure out what works best for you. Choose from one of our men's beanies and look good while keeping your head from freezing!
