It has become unpleasantly clear that summer is officially over. To help you brave the cold weather, we set our sights on a cozy staple: the beanie. Whether you're a hat lover, freezing cold, or simply want to cover a bad hair day, we've rounded up 10 reasons why you should make this style your go-to this fall and winter. From Margiela to C.P. Company, we've trawled our favorite affordable and high-end retailers to bring you our current highlight FW21 beanies available to shop now.

A good beanie can be the difference between cold and cozy this season, but that doesn't mean the snug item needs to compromise on style. If you're looking to brighten up an otherwise dark look, this playful option from Charles Jeffrey Loverboy certainly provides. Looking to keep things within a neutral fall palette? Then this Alpaca Beanie from ERL is your best bet. Whatever you're craving, we've got you covered.
