We all covet the fashion of the French, and there is no cuter symbol of Parisian chic than the beret. Back on trend on the runway, and the perfect finishing touch of nonchalance, look to our berets for your own dose of je ne sais quoi.
Go for Bardot inspired classic glamour with simple berets in black. Wear them with cosy roll neck jumpers and a-line suede skirts for 60s dolly girl vibes, and make sure you finish the look with smoky eyes and tousled locks. The classic beret also works in navy, grey and brown, but khaki green echoes its military roots, so it's the perfect accessory for this season's favourite coat, the khaki trench. Finish the look with chunky knitwear, and don't forget a pair of leather gloves to give the outfit plenty of sophistication.
Berets migrate into winter amidst snowy whites and cool pastels. Choose a fluffy cream beret to wear with a pale winter coat, and finish the outfit with a pinafore dress and thigh high boots to stay chic in the snow. Pastels bring a lighter side to the dark drawn out nights of winter. Wear a pastel beret with a subtly printed scarf and blazer for a preppy feel, or match it with a Chanel inspired two-piece to take your style to the next level. If you're not feeling the beret's typically twee undertones, give it a rebellious side with some streetwear inspiration. Clash a bright beret with tailored joggers, a crop top and a bomber jacket, or look to berets with modern features such as fluffy bobbles and knitted patterns.
