My fascination with the beanie has been going on for years. I've never owned one, but I have always admired how others wear it. I just don't get how they stay on your head, especially when its worn so far back .... wouldn't fall off with one gust of wind? I guess not.

In the last few months I've seen Nina Dobrev from the Vampire Diaries (You know you watch it!) wear it on her time off. Then Blake Lively, I probably don't have to explain who she is - wear it on the set of Gossip Girl. They wear it in two very different ways - casual and dressed up. So then I had to ask myself why have I never taken the leap and actually bought one? Is their a stylish item that you've admired from afar but never bought?

These two stylish ladies rock it with the short hair look, but I am a bigger fan of the long hair cascading out of the hat.

Most of these are casual weekend pictures, but with winter right in front of us - the wind will start picking up and a beanie would be the perfect accessory to go along with your boots and over coats. I walk practically everywhere so this would definitely help on those windy days where I am fighting my hair off my face. I like to see where I am going!

But of course as these pictures prove you don't need a bad hair day to wear one!

Oh, I TOTALLY watch the Vampire Diaries.

Also I love having a beanie, but sometimes when they're REALLY big it's hard to style them to look right and not just look weird?

love how it looks on these ladies but i'm with you - it feels like it might fall off. i also have long side swept bangs and they always seem messy if they stick out a bit.

i kinda love the big ones with all the hair tucked in to it.

I have several beanies just like this and they are amazing! My favorite one - by far - that I own comes from Goorin Bros. hat shop. They are a privately owned hat chain that has been around for awhile. In the last year they opened a store on the Ave (University Way) in the University District. I highly recommend stopping by. They have various classic styles, all great quality, laid back staff, and the store has such a neat set up that it makes for a great shopping experience!
