Over the years, I have taken many a style cue from the French. Striped boatneck tees, neck scarves, undone waves, etc. My latest obsession? Berets. They’re not just for poetry open mic night hopefuls and your local hipster barista. From Bridget Bardot and Twiggy to contemporaries like Kate Moss, many a tastemaker has rocked the beret. Not to mention they are all over the runways from Gucci to Marc Jacobs.
Still not convinced? Like any great hat, a beret can make an outfit feel instantly more pulled together and chic. On my most recent trip to NYC, I literally wore a one everyday! I was thrilled at how many different ways I could style them. From jeans and a sweater, to a knit dress and suede boots, it made every outfit better. Then add big pair of sunnies and a red lip, and you’ll really be cooking.
