The History of the Beanie

The beanie hat was originally worn in Wales during the 12th century. It is worn close to the head, and it was made of wolves so it was extremely warm. This was a necessity in the days before electric heat.

The beanie hat was popular with workers in the 1900s because of how warm it was. It lost popularity a bit in the 1940s when Fedoras and baseball caps became popular. It regained popularity in the 1950s when beatniks wore beanies and berets when reciting their poetry on stage. In the 1990s, grunge rock brought beanies to the forefront in a big way. They have never really lost popularity since.

Every person's wardrobe should have a beanie or two. Not only will they keep the heat inside your head, but they are also a cheap easy way to give yourself some style.

Lots of love,
