Berets are classic and timeless headwear and they have emerged as a key accessory for Fall 2017- 2018. Berets, as defined by dictionary.com, are round close-fitting brimless caps of soft wool material or felt. “The beret is the t-shirt of hats,” says Stephen Jones. Mr Jones is the British milliner, who’s celebrating twenty years of collaboration with the House of Dior. He has revisited the beret this season in ultra-soft black lambskin. There are a number of versions of berets in different fabrics and prints out there. Plus there are a number of styles to choose from such as floppy (oversized) or snug, with peaks, or with pom-poms. Berets are simple and chic. Wear them pulled down or balanced on your head. Tip: style pulled down and back on the head with a wool blazer, chunky knit and pants / jeans.
Wear A Hat?
Wear a hat? Why not? A hat for the modern woman is a way to create personal style, stand out in a crowd and / or protect from the harmful effects of the sun, such as aging and skin cancers. Unfortunately we women have multifaceted lives today and are always on the go making wearing hats everyday not a very practical option.
Pulling Off the Hat Trend
Pulling off the hat trend has to do with color, proportion, your hair style and confidence. The color of hat you wear should flatter your skintone (warm or cool) color. Choose hat colors that work with most of your wardrobe. Proportion has to do with the size of the hat and/or brim. Tall women can pull off larger size hats and hats with larger brims but shorter females are best to go with smaller size hats and no more than a 3 inch brim.
