{what to wear} the slouchy beanie

slouchy beanie

Top Row: {from left to right}: 1717 Olive Beaded Spiral Rib Beanie in Army $48.00 / 1717 Olive Open Weave Slouch Beanie in Ivory $38
Bottom Row: Steve Madden Glitter Knit Beret in Silver $22 / Free People Pompom Beanie in Black Combo $44


The temperature never drops too drastically in SoCal; so when we wear hats, their purpose is predominately for style as opposed to necessity. Case in point: the slouchy beanie. Toss one on to camouflage bedhead or a bad hair day; or merely as a means of adding a little extra something to your look. The slouchier the aesthetic, the more casual it appears. For a more pulled-together, chic style, an oversize beret worn at the crown of your head will do the trick.

1717 Olive has become my slouchy beanie company of choice, as I love their range of style options {from Open Weave to Standup Purl Knit}. For incredibly affordable price points, as well as subtle feminine detailing {metallic threading}, Steve Madden is my go-to. And if you love a little bit of playfulness, you cannot go wrong with Free People. Their pieces tend to be chunkier {read: warmer}, and feature adorable additions like pompoms!


Do slouchy beanies hold a space in your wardrobe?

I love the slouchy beanie..especially, for those very bad hair days. I watched Awkward this season and I was not impressed in how Jenna wore the slouchy beanie. Definitely, needs to be on the crown of the head. OH..and these are beautiful!

I LOVE slouchy beanies! My pom hat lost some of the elasticity, but it works as a slouchy hat now!

I ADORE my slouchy, but theres 2 problems (heres a post idea for you *Hint*Hint) I have bangs so I cant figure out how to expose the bangs & have the slouchy look good. 2: I just cant make it slouchy n cool without it falling off or being on my head in such a way I can barely move. Ya know? How can I make it slouchy & still be able to walk my dogs or just go about normal activities without worrying about it?
I love this post and the beanies are AWESOME. Going to mall today I may just buy a new beanie now :)

thank you for the bobby pin idea *hugz* Before Christmas Target & Kohls had some really cutesy slouchies & yesterday? It was chaos in both stores! It was like an apocalypse happened and all anyone wanted was hats, scarfs, mittens! I am not joking. Not ONE hat or scarf to be found!
Ill go back next week or go online ;)
ETSY has great slouchies too btw.
