Hi makers, OML dream teamer Kelly here, back here with another fashionable maker for our How To Wear It series! The OML team loves to connect with makers and celebrate our unique styles here on our blog, and Reshma, the maker and shop owner of Hello Lavender Design definitely knows how to rock and wear her knits. We're happy that she's here on the blog showcasing her maker style with her Luna Beanie!
A new and amazingly talented maker, Reshma taught herself how to knit in early 2016 and has been addicted ever since. As someone who loves to take fiber and make it practical, useful and fun, Reshma describes her knitwear style as cozy, modern, and stylish.
Let's take a look at how to wear Reshma's beautiful Luna Beanie, and how we can incorporate it into our everyday wardrobe!
Hi makers! Reshma of Hello Lavender Design here, and I'm so excited to be here with the OML team on the blog to show you my how to wear it style with my newest hat, the Luna Beanie! I've been using lots of hand-dyed yarns lately, which have so much personality, so I wanted to design a hat that was exciting but would also allow the yarn to shine. I had so much fun styling the Luna Beanie, and I hope you love these looks as much as I do!
Look 1: Fun Night Out
Beanies and jackets are a staple of my wardrobe. Oh, and boots! Gotta have boots! This is a fun and edgy, yet still comfy look that's perfect for a night out. Being comfy is huge for me, but I love fashion as well and I always try to find ways to look stylish and comfortable at the same time. I've paired this look with a pair of my crochet fringe earrings as well. I love this look because the beanie and earrings are the star and really pop against all the black.
Look 2: Knits on Knits
As a Midwesterner, you definitely need plenty of warm and chunky knits. I've been living in this outfit for about 2 months, no joke! Is there a rule about not being able to wear multiple knits in one outfit? If there is, I don't care! Pile on all the knits, I say! Anything to keep warm. No, but seriously, you can never go wrong with an oversized knit cardigan, jeans, boots, a simple tank, and of course the Luna Beanie! I'm always wearing a beanie!
Look 3: All About Pink
Lately, I've really been into pink shades. Which is totally not me. I'm a mustard yellow girl, through and through, so the sudden interest in pink has me totally confused. The colors in this beanie totally inspired me for this look because it's so soft and feminine. From the off-the-shoulder blush sweater, to all the pink shades in the beanie + the lighter colored jeans, it makes for a comfortable, stylish and super fun look!
So that's how Reshma wears it and we totally love it! Which look is your favorite - Reshma's first night out look, her second knits on knits look, or her third all about pink look? (Totally ok to choose all of the above!) If you recreate and rock Reshma's HTWI looks, share it with us on instagram with #ourmakerlife #hellolavenderdesign - we'd love to see!
Happy making (and cozy wearing!)
