Whether you like something wool or a thinner cotton, at BARTS we have a wide range of premium quality turn-up beanies. The turn-up beanie is a classic must have in every winter wardrobe.
Sloppy beanies are perfect to create a laid-back, cool look as their fit is usually a little looser and, as their name implies, sloppier. Opt for a thin or medium knit style and combine the sloppy beanie with a casual jeans, sneakers and a bomber jacket.
The pointy beanie – or high-top beanie – has gained popularity over the last couple of years. It’s usually worn slightly higher on top of the head, so make sure you choose a a thick material for your pointy beanie, or you will end up with a sloppy beanie ;-). This on-trend style is a great way to finish up an urban outfit.
Pom beanies are easily recognised as such: they have a pom at their top. Big chunky poms, faux-fur poms or small poms: poms come in all shapes and forms. Pom beanies have long been a common sight on the slopes of Austria and Switzerland, but are nowadays also worn in urban areas. Rock a Pom beanie with a warm winter coat!
