How To Style: A Beret

With the return of Netflix’s Emily In Paris what better time to share our top beret styling tips? 🥖

There’s no need to be scared of hats - Our Scottish Cashmere berets are an Autumn/Winter staple, and there’s plenty of ways to style them! 

How to wear a beret

The rules of wear are simple.

Below, find a few tips.

1. The beret is worn flat on top of the head about three-quarters of the way up the forehead and an inch or so behind the ears.

2. The brim is tucked in to keep the hat in place.

3. One side of the beret is pulled down, making it slant, while the crease gives it shape.

4. For additional warmth, the beret can be pulled straight down to cover the ears. Et voilà!

What makes the beret an ideal accessory, regardless of how à la mode you consider yourself to be, is that it suits every style.

Whether you’re bundled up for winter, leisurely cycling through the countryside, or strolling around the city in a flowy dress and a light sweater, a beret can be worn from the fall to the spring. A classic Parisian look that’s easy to dress up or down includes pairing a beret with a trench coat and a pair of jeans, sneakers, or heels depending on the mood. Contrary to French clichés, there’s no need to carry a baguette and don a marinière or striped shirt (though you can if you want to).
