A fashion essential is something every girl should have in her closet, that will never go out of style! Every week, we’ll be featuring one article of clothing, along with some examples of how to rock it.

This week’s essential? The beanie!

Why You Need Them In Your Closet:
Let’s face it, most of us do experience bad hair days, when you’re so frustrated with your hair that all you want to do is stuff it under a beanie. That’s what makes this accessory a must-have, especially on those days when your hair refuses to cooperate with the crummy weather. But with their different styles and patterns, beanies are also great for achieving a casual chic look!

Britt matches her beanie with a more preppy ensemble. Although we wouldn’t say beanies are appropriate for high profile celeb events, Britt’s outfit proves that there are ways to take this cute accessory up a notch.

Rihanna proves that leather always makes for an edgy look- she wore an all-leather outfit to this record release! We love how she paired her leather beanie with a glamorous side-wave hairdo and bold jewelry. It makes this ensemble look even more daring, but still chic.
