Love them or hate them (I’m clearly in the first camp) they are back and enjoying a moment thanks to Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele.
Jewel-tones and classic black berets have shown up in several of Michele’s collections, adding an extra dash of visual interest that is fun, fresh and modern.
The iconic beret, with its rich history and symbolic cultural ties, looks to be a strong statement-maker as we head into spring. Mine is wool felt, an archived classic, but this of-the-moment accessory can also be found in crocheted cotton, hand-knitted wool and even straw.
It’s a great accessory to elevate your classics or to add a little quirk factor to an otherwise laid-back look.

I’m slightly obsessed with this Parisian-chic outfit on you. You look amazing. My beret has been laying dormant in te corner of my room for a while. I may have to revisit my old friend…

You look so chic in this all black look! I grew up wearing a beret to church as part of my Catholic high school uniform and have not worn one since then.
Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!
Berets were my hat of choice for the longest time and then I suddenly forgot they existed, in favour of fedoras and wide brimmed pieces. I need to rekindle my bond with them :) you look lovely, Mary.
Perfect look Mary! I love the Chanel vibe here somehow.
