Let’s be real; we adore French style. And let’s be even more real, we’re still obsessing over Emily in Paris. From effortless everyday looks to Parisian statement-making pieces, like the beret, French style continuously influences the way we dress. A brief history of the beret: Basque-style berets were first produced in the 17th century in the South of France and commonly referred to as felt hats among artisans. It wasn’t until the ’20s when the beret would make its debut as a fashion statement. Now, the beret is an iconic symbol of French fashion and the epitome of très chic.
It may be bold, but I am deeming the beret as the hat of the season. From slouchy wool styles to soft leather and chunky knit fabrications, there is a beret for every mood and outfit this winter. Whether you pair it with your go-to winter coat or simply wear it with your favorite turtleneck, berets can be styled with almost every look this season. We scoured the web to find the best berets the internet has to offer right now, so keep scrolling to find your perfect match.
