In terms of accessories, winter was all about the beanie, ya’ll. This chic little headgear was responsible for some serious winter fashion moments with everyone from Rihanna to Beyonce hopping on the trend. Follow these hot tips to take the typical beanie from drab to fab in a flash.

Sass It Up
Street style epitomizes the coolest of the cool and the return of the beanie fits well within this hot trend. Pair beanies with cool, casual pieces like jogger pants, vintage T-shirts and distressed skinny jeans. Bomber jackets are another stylish option for flaunting a beanie, so mix and match these pieces to create tons of covetable outfits.

Cool Contrasts
Trendy beanies make great pairings for laid-back pieces like boyfriend jeans and plaid shirts while flirty touches like a burgundy lipstick or luxe gold chain can bring the look right back to high-fashion territory. Create a classic contrast by pairing edgy pieces with conservative cuts. The best of both worlds, these looks are ideal for day to night transformations, accomplished with a simple swap of shoes.

Ladylike Luxe
Throw caution to the wind and pair your beanie with ladylike skirts and dresses to create a cool juxtaposition sure to turn heads. Netted beanies were a hot trend this winter, taking the streets by storm. There are plenty of DIY versions on the internet, so get craft! A black beanie can be a fabulous pairing for a crisp, white button-down and black leather skirt while a pair of ladylike pumps and a swipe of red lipstick seal the deal to perfection.
