The Beret is Making a Comeback — So Be Prepared For One of the More Unexpected Trends of 2015
According to Vogue, the beret is set to make a huge comeback in 2015, and I'm here to make sure you're ready for it! (Because let's not forget that despite being an iconic fashion statement, the beret is also rather useful for covering up one's ears; and it's getting cold, after all!) Like Alessandra Codinha writes, "There are few things in this world that can manage to be both winning and coy, come-hither and prim, sentimental and modern, but friends, the beret is one of them."
When you think about a beret, there are several different styles that may come to mind. We are all aware of the military beret, which came into use because it was small enough to stay on soldiers' heads as they climbed in and out of tanks. This type of beret was immortalized in the images of Che Guevara, and is still a staple of the uniform of many military units today. There is also, of course, the fancy-French-lady type of beret we've seen countless times in pop culture, as worn by Marlene Dietrich and Jean Harlow. (We love this one, and are saddened by the wool hat's departure from French retail.)
And so, I've made a list of beret-themed gifts to give a friend or yourself if you're ready to come on board the upcoming beret craze in the new year.
