As the temperatures finally begin to drop, we’re looking forward to a few small things that bring us joy: bonfires and hard ciders with our best pals, the pumpkin spice flavor coming back at Starbucks, hunkering down in preparation for our yearly hibernation period and last but not least, beanies. Lots and lots of beanies.
Not only do they keep your head warm, but beanies for men have the ability to fully tie together your fall ‘fits. Wearing a bomber and ripped jeans to the pumpkin patch? Throw on a beanie. College crewneck and joggers? Throw on a beanie. Corduroy jacket and corduroy pants to match? Too much corduroy, guy, we don’t recommend it. But, nonetheless, throw on a beanie.
If it’s time for a bit of a beanie upgrade, a beangrade (we’re so sorry you had to read that), if you will, don’t worry because we’re in the same boat. Whether you’re going for a more monotone look this season or you’re trying to heat things up with a pop of color, we’ve gone some dope choices listed below that’ll keep your head cozy and style on fleek.
Read on for our list of the best beanies for men below!
1. Carhartt Acrylic Watch Hat A18
It would be wrong for us to say that this beanie won’t be the staple to your everyday outfits this season, simply because it doesn’t get more classic than Carhartt. There really isn’t much to this beanie given its simple, solid color design, but the Carhartt logo adds the “cool” factor you just don’t really get from any other brand. It has the versatility that a lot of fashionable beanies don’t, because it’s casual enough to wear with a light jacket and warm enough to wear while trudging around on a commute through the snow. Available in 20 different colors, try this hat in all black or fluorescent lime and claim your cool-weather look.
2. Top Level Beanie
You don’t really need to spend all your bones on a decent beanie. If all you’re looking for is a way to warm your head and stay stylish during the fall, look no further than this beanie from Top Level. There really isn’t anything particular to it that sets it aside from anything at a heftier price range. It fits comfortably, is easy to adjust and warms up that noggin. Coming in at only 12 inches long, it doesn’t display any extra material like some beanies do and fits perfectly to your head no matter its size. Over 20 colors available, all ranging from darker and more muted tones to brighter pinks and yellows. At just $9, we honestly recommend you snag a few.
3. Supreme Crossover Beanie
Flex a bit this fall and sport this crossover beanie between Urban Outfitters and our favorite streetwear brand, Supreme. This beanie released as part of Supreme’s spring/summer 2020 collection and currently, all sales are final on this drop, so we’re expecting this beanie to go off-site sooner rather than later. You know how Supreme is, once it’s gone, it’s gone. So act fast and buy this bad boy before it disappears into the abyss for good. Colors also come with black lettering on a grey and yellow lettering on blue, but we suggest you go all out with this one and get the brightest pick possible.
4. Everlane Cashmere Rib Beanie
We know, $65 for a beanie seems pretty ridiculous, but what if we told you that it was cashmere? Like, just imagine what this might feel like whilst swaddling your cranium. The Everlane cashmere rib beanie will be your best friend this winter as you leave your heated apartment for the frigid outdoors. It does what other beanies don’t have the power to do and keeps your head warm, soft, fresh and cozy day in and day out. Made from certified grade-A cashmere directly out of Inner Mongolia, this will, in fact, be the softest, most durable beanie you ever wear.
5. Timberland Logo Cuffed Beanie
BEST POM POM
Cheerleaders and beanies have a lot more in common than you might think. This pom pom beanie from Timberland effortlessly classic in its design, because who doesn’t love a good pom pom to top off your look? Sport this with your favorite pair of Tims this season, because we know you’ve been dying to break them out since the first chilly day this past August. Well, now is finally the time. Rock your Tims from head to toe unapologetically.
6. ASOS Design Slouchy Beanie 2 Pack
Why have one when you can have two? With this ASOS two-pack, you’ll be getting two stylishly slouchy, neutrally-colored beanies for just $13.50 — which is a damn steal. Although they’re both incredibly plain overall, adding one of these to your head will bring a little pazazz even with their neutral coloration. Both beanies are a bit longer than the average, so they’ll definitely hang off the back of your head a little bit, but it’s intentional. Additionally, we don’t suggest either of these for warming purposes because they honestly aren’t of the best quality, but for the price, they’re still worth the buy for pulling together a stellar look this season.
7. FULLLIGHT TECH Bluetooth Beanie Wireless Headphones
Take your look to the next level with a beanie that doubles as your new go-to music player during the colder months. Blast your favorite tunes without ever sticking in your earbuds or throwing on a set of headphones, because this hat has the ability to play music right into your ears through its innovative design. It works with Bluetooth technology so you can play hits or take calls wire-free. This is excellent for the always-on-the-go type of guy, or for somebody who loves to play music while they ski or snowboard. Worried about horrible battery life? Don’t be. Each hat is able to play continuous music for up to 16 to 20 hours after a full charge. Try getting that from a beanie alternative.
8. Burberry Logo Intarsia Beanie
If keeping your head warm isn’t your only priority, consider this handsome Burberry logo beanie to rep your favorite name brand this season. This beanie doesn’t give the classic Burberry pattern, which is good because on a beanie that would be a bit obnoxious. Instead, this head warmer gives us a solid light brown hat with bold black logo lettering on its fold. Because it’s so traditional in color, it’ll match any of your outfit choices as a voguish top-off.
9. Home Prefer Beanie
While the newsboy look is pretty out of style when it comes to knit caps, buck up the courage to singlehandedly bring back the trend in 2020. Brimmed beanies are an outdated look we can get behind for their happy medium between your classic, warming beanie and your favorite sun-shielding baseball cap. Considering traditional beanies don’t block the sun in the slightest, this brimmed beanie is an excellent way to keep the sun out of your eyes while staying cozy at the same time.
10. UO Super Soft Fleck Beanie
Who doesn’t love a sporadic fleck pattern? This incredibly cozy beanie from Urban Outfitters has that deliciously handsome paint splatter style knitted directly onto it, giving us not only a majority of purple but various blues, yellows, blacks and reds, too. It’s a trend that will never die and a hat that will never make your head cold again.
11. Doublet Beige Mohair Wig Beanie
Yeah, it’s ridiculous, but hey, it’s fashion. This mohair wig beanie looks like your Uncle Jerry’s toupe on a windy day, so if that’s a look you’ve always wanted to recreate, Doublet’s got you covered. We can’t promise it will keep your head warm in any way shape or form and we also can’t promise you’re going to look, well, good, but we can honestly say you’re surely going to get a couple of head turns. So, if that’s your vibe this fall, get ready to give Uncle Jerry a run for his money. And his wig.
