The Beret is - without any question - the chicest fashion accessory of fall. No other headpiece is more suitable and practical for transitioning time. As an accessory, a part of the outfit, it can dwell on the head outdoors as well as indoors. It protects your hairdo from those few raindrops that fall now and then and leaves your head warm enough just for the fall breezes that don't require a beanie yet.
But more important are the fashion aspects of the beret. For a long time, it was the key piece of the French girl look, but these days are over. The beret is not 'typical French' anymore, it conquered the world and thereby didn't leave out all the most important designer catwalks. Also style-wise it changed a lot: There are models with pearls, patches, embroidery; statement pieces even have lettering on it. As the cherry on top of the outfit, the beret gives the chic touch that is sometimes needed: For up-dressing a casual outfit or topping off an elegant look. Our editor's hint: The Beret and the (trench) coat make a lovely couple!
