I once told myself I would never wear a beret just because I thought it was just cliché to wear one. Until one day I saw a beret from the Zara sale back in November and thought, “What the hell, let’s give it a try!” So I got a grey wool beret and wore it to my last trip to New York. I loved it so much that I snagged another one from Forever 21. This black beret has studs on the side, which I think has a very cool and edgy feel to it. It’s safe to say that I’m obsessed! And here’s 3 reasons why:
It’s cute, but also sophisticated.
While everyone else wears a knit beanie, try something new and get yourself a beret to keep your head warm this winter season! You can go monochromatic, just like I did here, or you can add a pop of color by wearing a red beanie with your neutral basics.
Look more put together.
You can wear a plain tee and your favorite pair of jeans and still look like you tried with a beret. It’s effortlessly chic and adds personality to your look!
No one will know you’re having a bad hair day.
Whenever you feel like your hair is too limp or too dirty, simply throw on a beret and you’re good to go!
Now that I (hopefully) convinced you, here are some styles that I LOVE:
In terms of choosing outfits to match your beret, I'd say to go for timeless, neutral pieces. And always remember that less is always more. Keep in mind that your beret is the statement piece in this look!
