Balaclava: the most popular accessory of the winter


Balaclava? This is one of the most sought-after accessories on Lyst right now! 🔥

It’s one of the most viral current trends on TikTok: you’ve inevitably spotted a tutorial to create your own multicoloured crochet balaclava! And we advise you to get started because the movement is likely to last next winter if we believe the latest FW22 runways from Louis Vuitton, Loewe, D&G or even the one with the explicit name of Youth in Balaclava! 👀

The Balaclava, which has its post-Soviet origin around 1854 in the middle of the Crimean War has become over the centuries an accessory sometimes used as a sign of emancipation and revolt (like the Punk movement), sometimes as a soft piece adopted to hit the ski slopes. ❄️

In the midst of a pandemic, it’s not surprising that the balaclava has become a real cult object for the fashion sphere. A 2-in-1 hat and mask, it’s a bit of the ideal piece that saves our winter!

Be careful not to go for a total look or with white lenses like Ye: a bit creepy.
