Even though balaclava is not something new, but it seems it was worth the hype as it stayed on the fashion arena for quite awhile now, every season transforming to something slightly different.
Major fashion brands have their own take on this accessory.
It graced the Red Carpets and high profile event with the same drive as it conquered the hearts of Street Style fashionistas. BASIC invites you to glance again at different styles of this quite controversial statement piece and decide if it has a place in your wardrobe or not.
