I ordered this beanie in both colors and am very happy with both. The colors are darker than in the pictures (a rich red and a deep teal - see my candid shots). I would've preferred the lighter shades pictured as I'm fair, but the actual colors are bright and appealing. The design is cute and stylish with a cute Pom and a ruched tie at the back (also looks good with this tie on one side). The tie detail allows you to adjust the fit (the knit also has some stretch) and to achieve either a feminine gathered effect or a slouchy look, depending on your head size. This beanie is also very warm and cosy.
