You’ve spent years convincing yourself that you’re tough and that you don’t need things like hats and scarves to keep you warm during winter. Newsflash: you’re not tough. It’s cold out there, and you need to protect yourself. You know what’s cool about having your ears freeze off? Nothing.
It’s time to invest in a nice beanie or skull cap—they’re classic, simple, and if you buy one, it’ll last forever.
