EDIT: The Beret


Share This Article:

We have a lot to thank the French for. The baguette, Chanel and of course this season's staple accessory: the beret.  

Worn by icons such as Faye Dunaway and Brigitte Bardot in the 60s, this impossibly chic hat has appeared all over the world ever since. 

Sadly, I have quite a large head (means I have a big brain, heh) so I was apprehensive to try one. 

But I finally took the plunge and now I'm a fully fledged beret aficionado that wants to show you all how to join me!

We all know that black is a great staple colour for any outfit so why not get your beret in the same colour? To amp up this simple beret, why not add some big earrings or a brooach to the hat? To get this beret head over to ASOS, £10.

Pearly Girly

Are you a girly girl? Show the world by brandishing your head with this pearly number from Topshop, £16. You can get it in black and pink too!

Pop of Colour

This is my favourite way to wear a hat. Pops of colour are so fun, so don't be afraid to work in some red or pink or blue into those otherwise 'dull' outfits! I have this beret from Topshop, £12.

Leather Look

These hats are only wool blend either! Try one of the more edgy looks with a leather look beret! I recommend this one from River Island, £16.

So there you have it! Four cool styles in which to wear the beret!

Which do you like best?
