Accessory of the Week: Beanie Baby

Keep your head happy, with a chunky knit hat; a small investment ready to see you through the crisp air of today’s climate. As November is strongly underway, pay your respects to winter with this charming rendition of the simple beanie. It is pretty hard not to resist such a purchase, especially when it is being offered by ASOS at such a fractional price. Complete with detachable pom poms that hold a likely resemblance to furry creatures which inhabit woodlands but with or without the pom poms the hat can be transformed into a staple accessory for keeping warm. A beanie like this can also double as the perfect disguise for unruly hair on the worst of days.

Keep in line with the fuzzy feeling by adding an oversized shearling coat and pave your way in a pair of chic hiking boots. Though practical dressing doesn’t always conjure images of style, the trick is to embrace the challenging weather with a combination of fabric. Be it a surface of fine wool or soft suede – take your pick.

Who said wrapping up had to be a bore: forget traditional folklore and play a part in your own modern fairy-tale.
