Channel Your Inner French Girl With These 5 Cute Berets

L'accessoire du moment.


You may only know the words bonjour and merde in French, and you may have only visited Paris for a sordid weekend hotel room affair, but that doesn't mean you should shy away from this season's hottest accessory trend: the beret. Anyway, if anyone should dare to call cultural appropriation on your ass, you can always excuse yourself with the military trend – regardless of whether you have a full-length baguette sticking out of your bag...pour l'effet.

Truth is, we've always known we look fuckin' cute in a beret, but until recently we never had the guts to commit; the beret, like the fedora, is like the Marmite of the hat world. But now, juste comme ça, the fashion tides are a-turning and the once kooky, pretentious beret has gained serious favor with the style set – including the likes of Rihanna and Bella Hadid.

But before we let you in on our must-cop beret styles, allow us to offer a little advice on how exactly you're supposed to wear them – because, let's face it, it's pretty easy to get it wrong.


  1. Make sure the knot is located at the back

  2. Place the band on your forehead and pull the rest of the beret to the back of the head

  3. Adjust to your liking, pulling it to one side or backwards, et voilà!
