It might sound a little strange but you can definitely wear a beanie in summer. But first, why should you? Because no one ever set ground rules to wear it in winter alone. Besides, I love them myself and yearn to wear them through the heat. So, for all you lesser mortals, though 40 degrees should definitely a mean NO, here's how to wear the beanie with the sun in full bloom.Winter Beanies Don’t Work For Summer
Cable knits and woollen beanies (in general) aren't a pleasant sight to set your eyes upon in summer. Plus, those pom poms on top are only going to look clown-like. Replace your winter beanie with non-ribbed knits and stick to neutral colours to evade fashionably-awkward moments under the sun.For Once, Get Basic
To wear something out of the ordinary, you don't need to venture too far. On the contrary, go the subtle route. Wear the head-softie with wardrobe basics and classic choices! Eye earthy tones, evergreen hues/shades and colours that work almost all year long.Summer Layering + Beanie
As the chills descend, you layer in oodles. While we're not asking you to repeat the same through the heat, but 'summer layering' is a thing and you should try it too! Look at cotton throw-ons or just a light sweater. Or opt for beanies in a neutral palette, to wade away raised brows on your unusual pairing.Prints Please
Floral and tropical prints have a permanent place in summer, and if you think you can evade them, you're actually a douche bag. In case you didn't know, the hipster-constant can be paired with prints/patterns too! However, keep the rest of the apparel, classic and summer-like, and let the print alone do the trick for you. Beanies should be plain additions to your outfit, not winners!Lastly, Choose Your Occasion
We know it's an accessory meant for the chills (ideally), but you don't want to turn into a spokesperson of that. As a thumb rule, stray away from situations that'll make the pairing look weird and inappropriate. For example, the airport, the park, a morning jog are the most ideal situations. Don't wear them to a cocktail or a wine tasting! You're going to turn into the butt of jokes.
