Ever since Maria Grazia Chiuri sent every single model down the runway topped with a leather beret in Dior’s AW17 show earlier this year, the long abandoned French millinery of choice has been creeping back to the top (quite literally) of every fashionista’s look.
There are many modern misconceptions around this classic French cap, known around the world as the beret. Many people might find themselves thinking, “Oh, I’m not French. I can’t wear a beret,” or maybe “Berets are simply outdated or cliche,” or even one I struggle with myself, “I love berets, but I just don’t think I can pull them off.” All of these thoughts can lead to a lot of distress surrounding the beret.
However, with the trend blowing up in fashion and in modern streetwear, the beret has returned as an effortless staple for any woman (or man)’s wardrobe. So, the time has come for us to conquer our fear and embrace the beret for what it is: chic and timeless.
