How to Wear a Beret


So apparently the beret is back in fashion, which is news to me. Was it ever not in fashion?? Essentially I just want to be French and living in the 60s, which goes a long way to explaining my love of berets and Breton striped tops. I’ve been wearing a beret every winter as long as I can remember, but maybe for most people the beret has been an item best left in the fancy dress box? Well no more, the beret is here to stay for this winter at least. To me a beret is about looking artistic, quirky, a little bit french and most importantly keeping your ears warm. There are many ways to where the beret . Here are some of my favourites.

What style do you go for? I'm a mix between the classic and back of the head. You can pick up a beret from Accessorize, Topshop, And Other Stories or La Redoute (for authentic french style), but be quick, they are selling out fast.
