Is it a hoodie? Is it a ski mask? It’s a BALACLAVA!
A little bit avant-garde, and somehow reminiscent of both the glamorous head scarves of old-hollywood and the wildest wrestling masks – the modern balaclava is COMPLETELY taking over the streets by pedestrians and celebrities (Billie Eilish, Kanye, Beyoncé, etc.) alike!
We love the unique versatility of this functionally fun piece for streetwear, snowy holidays and ski trips!
The saturated colors and patterns of a modern balaclava makes for a great statement piece when paired with a utilitarian cold weather outfit and big sunglasses. Check out some of our favorite men’s and women’s outfit ideas below!
And here are five ways to wear it, as found on the Balaclava Wikipedia Page.
