The Beanie’s Big Splash

  • 3rd November 2013

This season we first noticed the beanie in Australian Vogue’s gorgeous “Wild Rose,” feature wherein the oversized accessory looks luxuriously cozy atop her cascading tresses, followed by flowing rich fabrics.

The decadent dusty rose beanie worn throughout the shoot is by Giles, retailing at $850.00.  On the runway it received extra accessories by way of shiny pins and dangling feathers and came in a range of colors.

Knitters the world over stand to make a pretty penny at trying to duplicate them this season.  Playing into this trend, Anthropologie had winter’s biggest hat on the cover and inside cover of their winter catalogue.
