Fall, Fashion, and Head: A Classic lcon In Style: The French "Beret" @balleralert A Classic Icon In Style: The French “Beret” - blogged by @lanaladonna (swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The “beret” which made its debut as early as 1835, is a prime example of history repeating itself. The popular accessory is a soft, round cap with a flat crown, typically made of knitted wool. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Its versatility and sleek style has caused for the entire world to enjoy this timeless piece. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in October of 2017, InStyle predicted the piece would be the “chicest fall accessory” of the 2017-2018 Fall and Winter seasons, after being flaunted on the runway of Paris Fashion Week. It’s safe to say, their predictions were head-on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your favorite celebrities have been spotted wearing the stylish headpiece, from KeyshiaKaoir to CardiB. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some may choose to play it safe with the classic, black beret, adding “classic Hollywood” to their look in an instant, while others may go for a more modern, sassier look with the red one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, if you are looking to dab into your inner "Clueless" moment, the dainty beret is the perfect go-to accessory while it's still cold outside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How do you style your beret?
