I got given two for Christmas (which means my friends and family associate me with Berets, which makes me most happy) and I have barely left the house without one since September, really. I wanted to share a post on my love of Berets, thank you to Nicole for taking these photos in September.
- They work with everything from a raincoat, or wooly coat to just a scarf and top.
- It’s a hat, so you immediately feel more fancy.
- On the same hat thread, it’s funny watching other people try on your Beret. Especially if it’s blush pink,and it’s your dad/brother/
- I’ve been wearing them since I was Sixteen, so the eight I own ARNT going anywhere until Spring.
- If you already have a predisposition to wear stripes, you will look even more French.
- They keep your head warm, and dry. Sometimes having a hood up can feel stuffy.
- They are easy to fold up, ether if you would like them stored in a pocket of a coat or the corner of a bag, and they don’t really lose thier shape.
- They take up the least space of any of hat I own, which when space is a commodity, is incredible.
- Ive never had to chase after a Beret, because they tend to be a snug fit. Whereas my Fedora and Cossack have definelty had me running after them on windy days.
My favourite way to wear a Beret is across the top half of my forehead (slightly below my eyebrows) and pulled to the left.
If you’re looking to add a Beret to your collection and aren’t sure where to start; three of mine are from Accessorise, one is from Primark, one is for a vintage fair, one is from Peacocks, and two are second hand (Table Top Sale, and Charity Shop).
