Once I saw the title of this article, I knew IU would be featured! allkpop posted "10 Female Idols Who Can Rock Beanies", and included IU, calling her "adorable" and posting THREE different pictures of her in 3 different beanies! Gotta love em!

IU puts the "A" in "Adorable." We already know she has a baby-face, but with a beanie, she goes back in time and returns as her 15-year-old self. Her taste in beanies is just as adorable, ranging from the monster-ear beanie (far right) to the beanie with a huge fluff ball placed on top.
