We are beanie lovers. As soon as it's chilly enough, we wear them every day — even when indoors — and heck, we'd go so far as to pair a knit cap with an evening look, too. Our collection of slouchy toppers span from fancy splurges on a statement-making designs to basic blacks we picked up from a street vendor on a whim. But, we asked Rank & Style
to make our lives (and wardrobes) a bit more concise, and hunt down the very best beanie, according to math. Good news: It comes in 13 different colors.
Earning top marks for buzz and user reviews, Free People's Capsule Slouchie Beanie was named #1. The $28 buy comes oversized, ready to be rolled or folded at your crown, let loose to hang by the nape of your neck, or tucking in your locks when your hair's doing that weird thing again.
While we can't say this math-approved beanie can replace all the others we love, at least consider this a cue to toss away any old winter hats that are pilled and stretched out. According to experts, this one makes for a great replacement. And, while you're at it, Rank & Styles also compiled lists for the best of the best black leggings
, wrap sweaters
, and winter booties
— a few other winter essentials that are taking up a heck of a lot of closet space.
