How to Choose a Beret

Be­cause of the va­ri­ety of shapes, colours and de­signs that ex­ist, choos­ing a French beret will come down to per­sonal pref­er­ence and aes­thetic. There is no in­cor­rect way of in­tro­duc­ing a beret into your wardrobe, but keep­ing the tips be­low in mind will en­sure that your new beret fits in seam­lessly with your style.Be­cause French berets are a ver­sa­tile ac­ces­sory that can be worn with a wide va­ri­ety of styles, they will work with nearly any wo­man’s pref­er­ence. • You can go Parisian chic with a tra­di­tional French beret, red lip­stick, and a dark pea­coat.

• Paizr your beret with Ray-Bans, and a turtle­neck for a chic cool look.

• A maxi skirt, and chunky jew­elry give your beret look a bo­hemian style.

• Your beret can be given a punk rock edge with pins and badges.

• For a more fem­i­nine, or­nate look you can pin on an an­tique brooch.

• If you’re feel­ing more ad­ven­tur­ous, you could pair your beret with baggy jeans and a gold chain for a glam take on streetwear.

• While you may not be­lieve it, a beret can be in­cor­po­rated into a con­ser­va­tive, busi­ness look as well. Try a black beret with a suit jacket and pin­striped pants for an of­fice ready style. The beret truly is that dynamic.
