Parisian Chic | Why You Should Wear A Beret This Season

Double Breasted Camel Waistcoat Dress WomenWell, the title of this post says it all really!  A turn of phrase that pops up time and time again in fashion is Parisian Chic - that elusive, highly coveted vibe we're all wanting to emit through our outfits.  Sadly, it's much harder to achieve than a young Brigitte Bardot would have us believe.  Dammit.  Although, this season it's just that little bit more attainable thanks to a surge of interest in berets.  Any colour, any style.  Unlike Baker Boy hats that demand a dark shade and utilitarian feel, berets aren't asking for much.  They just want to look super chic!  Oh, and to also hide your bad hair days...

How to Look Parisian Chic in a Beret
I hadn't actually planned to wear head-to-toe Zara, but with (2am) online shopping one thing leads to another and before you know it you're inundated with boxes landing on your doorstep!  Can't say I regret any of these finds though and especially considering the theme of Parisian Chic was kept in mind (you Parisian girls really know what's up).  Yet still, my favourite purchase so far this season has been this embellished beret.  Whether your chosen beret comes with a brooch or not isn't essential, as it's super easy to attach your own brooch - as and when you feel like it.  Speaking of which, the beauty of a beret lies in how it works with pretty much anything.  You can tone it down (such as the polo neck top and sleeveless trench dress seen here), or make it fierce with leather leggings and patent boots, or chunky knits layered with gold jewellery.

Clearly I'm a massive beret convert.  But the question is, will you be wearing a beret this season?!

With love,

  33. I had a beret once when I was about 14 but havent ventured into that area of hats since then. Seen SO many on people recently that have looked so fab, so I'm thinking of getting one in black or maybe even something daring like red, eeek. I love what you have paired this one with! xx
