Trends gone Bad: Beanies During Heat Waves?!




I don't know about you guys, but where I live, the past couple of days have been so hot people are literally passing out from dehydration and over heating. Even massive brush fires have been popping up left and right from the heat. To my great surprise, this still did not stop several "trend" lovers from covering their burning head with a knitted beanie? What?!

This seasonal mish-mash of trends has been going around like wild fire, and it's about time some one said something. Yes, I know even Rihanna has been spotted on numerous occasions supporting this "beanie love", but does that mean you should copy it?

I am not saying that the trend is bad, but don't be crazy. If there is a heat wave and you are literally in a tiny tank with short shorts, do NOT put a heavy knitted hat on your head! Your head which contains your brain is where heat from your body escapes. Blocking it makes anyone with half a brain wonder, what happened to your logic?

       


If you must follow this trend then here are some tips to prevent you from looking crazy. 

1.) Temperature: The overall temperature should be cool enough that you need a cardigan. The heaviness of the knit and material should match the type you would wear in the given day. If you do not need a cardigan, this is a sign the weather is much too warm for a beanie.

2.) Material: Make sure the beanies you wear in Spring/Summer are lighter knit, and wider in stitch. Your head needs to breath during warmer months, and keeping it warm is counter productive.

3.) Comfort: Never forget beauty comes from how comfortable you are. Just like wobbling around in 4 inch heels is not sexy, a sweety head of hair is not fashionable either.

4.) Logic: The most important tip is ALWAYS, ALWAYS listen to your own logic. It doesn't matter who wore it which way, or how popular it is. Trust your own judgement.

  2. My secret is that I also wore beanie during hot weather!
    I find them so cool together with nice T-shirt and pear of shorts! Haha, but you are right, better wear a beanie with lighter fabric :)

  4. They look cool, but since it's spring (about march) I stopped to wear beanies, I feel so stupid if it's hot...

  6. You're SO right, it's ridiculous when people wear those beanies in really hot weather. I know if I lived anywhere that hot I could physically not take the heat and I would probably pass out haha xx

  7. I absolutely agree with you,
    Some trends are just too ridiculous . It's just like wearing sunglasses during the night . Too many senegalese wear them for clubbin' just to follow the trend but we all know that it's ridiculous.

  9. Yes! Thank you for saying this, I could not agree more. If you are sweating while wearing a beanie, there is obviously an issue.
