As North America is gripped by a freezing winter, the Trump Administration and SuperBowl LII the rest of us down here in sunny Australia are enjoying a balmy Summer.
One winter trend which we’ve seen break over the past few days is the return of the extra large beanie. A style which was often a staple of gang shootings and hiphop music videos has now made a return thanks to two of sport’s greatest. Both LeBron James and Tom Brady this week were spotted sporting the Pharrell Williams of winter headwear, aka Mega Beanie.
Arguably a great way to beat the cold, the oversized beanie will be making a comeback as essential streetwear meets luxe fashion accessory. Ideally worn atop one’s head, the oversize beanie trend should give you an additional 5-7cm of height ensuring you’re the tallest at most parties.
Brands such as Gucci, ACNE and Connolly have all embraced the trend as well as more traditional sportswear brands.
