Beanie hats or beanies in short are a type of headwear manufactured from triangular parts of cloth and sewn collectively at the sides and at the top. In the old times, beanie hats were a sign of inferiority and were usually worn by the labor and low class workers in order to keep hair out of their eyes. Later it turned into a symbol of innocence when it started to be worn by fresh men students as a kind of initiation. The secondary purpose of these beanies at the time was to protect the head and ears from the cold weather.
As time has evolved, so has fashion and trends and now something that used to be symbolic is now more of a fashion trend. Admittedly, beanie hats are a rather comfortable head gear that is versatile enough to be worn with roughly any types of clothes. Beanie hats come in a variety of shapes and sizes, some people also customize them according to their own liking as well.
Numerous high-end fashion brands now have show cased beanie hats in their fashion shows and in their fashion collections. It is still possible to find the traditional beanie hats but the more advanced versions are of a greater liking and are widely accepted now as a broad fashion statement. One of the major reasons for the revival of the beanie hats is accredited to the harry potter series as they used these beanie hats as a style statement for the students of Hogwarts.
