Think "beret", and an image of a stylish French girl pops into your head. The French-inspired hat is the season's hottest accessory and adds a Parisian touch to any outfit. From off-duty looks to a little black dress, berets are surprisingly versatile. Worn by celebrities and models such as Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Rihanna and seen as the star of the 'Emily in Paris' series, the beret has proven to be très chic.
The Parisian style is trend-resistant: think Breton tees, ballerina flats and a beret like the Flo. 'Less is more" is the best advice a French girl can give you. Wear a simple T-shirt and black cigarette trousers and add a beret as the final touch! For a slightly more dramatic look, opt for the Claar: this black wool felt beret, with a black dotted veil, will also attract attention outside of Paris.
Cosy yet stylish
The wool beret will keep you cosy and warm, yet its pleasing aesthetic makes it a stylish addition to any outfit. Thanks to the many different shades and designs, there's a beret for every look. Add a pop of colour, or opt for a tonal look with the beret of your choice. You may also like the Birdy beret, which comes with a delicate bird-themed embroidery. The bird beret is classic yet different from a regular plain beret and is available in monoblock versions: black with white embroidery and white with black embroidery. If you like structured berets, the graphic wool felt beret Marecan be your friend on cold days. Mare's design is slightly asymmetrical, making you look tall and slim. The warmest of all berets in the Bronté range is the Faraona style: a double-layer knitted beret that covers your ears and forehead.
The history of the beret.
This trending accessory first appeared as a political statement in Spain when a leader appeared wearing a red beret. The word 'beret', originally French, refers to a flat, woollen cap that symbolised peasant status in most of Europe. In the early 20th century it became a fashion statement. Thanks to its looks and practicality, the beret has become an accessory that is always cool to wear.
