Default How old is too old to wear beanies?

Hello All,

I have a question about wearing beanies. How old is too old to wear beanies? I am in my 40s.

Thank you for your advice in advance.

It's not your age it's how you wear them.

Never too old! Especially hand knit ones

As long as there's no propellers on top, I think you're good.

One of my good friends is an 85 year old ex-nun and has a pink stripe down the middle of her spiked, silver hair. As long as you have a life, enjoy it.

A beanie is just a hat, people of all ages can wear hats.

Well you all know what I'll say to this - you are never too old to wear anything you want to wear.

I am thinking that a silk beanie under my motorcycle helmet (although I ride a 49cc scooter in the warm weather) may be just the thing to preserve my waves/curls. I'll be getting one from here in the spring

My grandmother wore beanies at the age of 89!!! I wear them a lot now, since the weather is colder!
