Current Love: Intricate Braids and Oversized Beanies

Hi there! A combination that I've been very intrigued by lately is the whole braid and beanie thing. While the friend who I saw wearing said beanie had her long black hair flowing, it made me think back to some styles that I've seen before when the hair was in a braid of some sort with a cozy beanie to balance out the look.

Especially since it's winter, this combo would be awesome to bring a bit of life to your everyday style. Keep reading for more inspiration!

I'm particularly into this rope braid that's an upgrade from your standard two-strand one. The cool and intricate pattern clashes well with the typical lines of knitted beanies. With a bit of practice, you'll get this daunting hairstyle down pat.

This one's called the box braid and while it may look difficult (tutorial here) just imagine your hair done like that with an oversized beanie on your head to keep it warm. If you're into the whole cool-girl-who's-got-it-all-together type look (think Jenny from Gossip Girl season 4 with just a bit less makeup), this is definitely for you.
