Different Ways to Wear a Beret

Berets have long held a place in the history of fashion. Despite its worldwide reputation, the hat is most often associated with France. The disc-shaped hats were first mass-produced in France in 1810. Beret is a French word that used to describe a soft, round, flat hat that has no brim. Berets are usually made of wool, crocheted cotton or acrylic, and sometimes have a drawstring inside to tighten the hat. Berets have universal appeal for both men and women. They are comfortable to wear and are usually worn at an angle, but there is nothing wrong with wearing a beret in any way.

Now that you have known about a beret, you may want to know how to wear a beret to get the best effect. That depends on you. If you just want to wear it for fun, it’s really a matter of personal preference. If you pursue a fashion look, you need to consider whether your outfit and the hat go well with each other. I believe many of you are confused how to keep a beret and how to wear it correctly. Thus, I would like to introduce four ways to wear a beret.   

First, you should choose the right sized beret and one that is made of thick felt or wool that will keep you warm on fall and winter. The beret is neither too big that will look odd; and nor too small that you couldn’t keep it on your head. Make sure the beret you choose is the perfect size, shape and fabric to lay correctly on your head. The easy and straight way to wear a beret is to pull straight onto your head with the beret pulled down over your forehead. This is a very common way to wear a beret. This makes you look like a good girl. It seems that most girls would wear a beret like that. The outfit includes a striped t-shirt, jeans and a beige beret. The overall look is simple while the beret adds a different stylish vibe.

Second, some girls don’t want to be the same as the others, so they usually wear the beret on one side. In this way, the beret can cover more area of their face and add a mysterious feeling. Until it is freezing, they will pull the hat to their head. All you have to do is pull the beret straight on and then pull it slightly to one side.

Thirdly, this way is more like a beanie. If you feel a bit much for you when wearing your beret forward, you can pull it on the crown of your head, just wear it further back on your head. It looks less a beret and more beanie.

Lastly, if you don’t want your hair loose down, you can tie up it into a bun. Some girls are lazy to wash their hair, so this is a best way to cover your dirty hair. There is nothing more “French girl” inspired than wearing your beret with the signature French low messy bun. The only thing you need to twist your ponytail and secure it into a messy bun and then top with a beret.
