The Beret Trend
When I was looking at the NYFW street style, I noticed that wearing hats, or more specifically, the beret was trending. I never really considered myself someone who would or could pull off this trend. When I see others wear it, especially those Parisian fashionistas like this girl, I’m like wow they look so chic. But when I tried on my slouchy sweater, I knew something was missing to complete the look. I took this as an opportunity to try out wearing the beret.
Where I Bought My Beret
You want to know where my go-to is for fashion accessories without splurging? Amazon! I’ve been surprised by the quality of the stuff I’ve been getting considering the affordable price! So I typed in beret in the Amazon search bar, and bam, I found several affordable options. Prime? Ok, I’m convinced! I decided to go with the burgundy color so that I have an excuse to wear my burgundy loafers. FYI, these loafers are sooooo comfortable! I shared them on my InstaStory and if you missed it, I shared how the arch has cushion for comfort. It is like walking on clouds! Totally considering getting it in black and beige. #OBSESSED
I’m still unsure if I can pull off wearing berets but it was fun to switch up my usual look and pretend to be Parisian. Seriously, how do you Parisian girls look so good in it! Teach me your ways haha! I love their style so much that I have a Pinterest board dedicated to Parisian style haha. I also think it is a great accessory to wear in the Winter than the usual beanie hat to keep me warm. When I saw Julia from Gal Meets Glam wear a beret during her trip to Quebec City, it inspired me to bring it when I head there next month. I know it will be cold there, so I think it is a great way to keep my head warm while trying to look stylish. Maybe pair it with a grey wool coat or this camel-colored city coat.
