As promised in my ‘How to wear old items in new ways‘ post, I am continuing with the How to series. This post is all about wearing a Beret with some outfit¬†ideas. It’s a classic style piece that continually comes back on trend. The Beret is great because most people suit them, whether you have long or short hair.

My Beret Shopping Tips:

When shopping for beters there are a few options on where best to go. First of all you can try out your local vintage shops, as often they stock quirky berets like the pink one I am wearing (that’s actually more of a soft cap but that’s fine)! High street brands are starting to catch on to the trend again so I have put together a shoppable edit below for you to have a look. As well as this Ebay always have amazing colours and styles, for as little as ¬£2.99 per beret. ALSO you may have seen me wear the gorgeous woodland style from Beauxoxo (see below) they sell the most amazing hand embroidered styles, for something a little more unique.

Beret Inspiration

I’m all about getting style inspiration from other fashionistas and Pinterest is the place to go. Check out my Outfit Inspiration board for more ideas.

Master the Look:

To master wearing a beret with confidence is all in the style of your outfit and hair. I love how my fringe looks pocking out but you can wear them without a fringe. My friend Sophie also loves them at the moment, and is seen in my video below wearing the grey style. If you have colourful hair opt for a contrasting colour for a statement, or classic black and grey styles. I tend to dress slightly more retro inspired when I wear a beret as I think it looks cute. You can wear them to suit your style because they are such a basic item to wear, rock it in your way!
