Ladies, the black beret is not just for the French, mimes or those in the armed forces anymore. It is a great hat to wear at anytime of year and one that you can look rock with confidence. Not sure you have what it takes to rock this trendy, but classic look? Fear not. This article explains exactly how you should style the beret so that it will look great.
The black beret looks elegant and chique on top of anyone’s head. It looks particularly great when your hair is down, displayed on both sides of your face or pulled over to one side. It also looks great on top of hair that is styled in a low ponytail or bun. You should avoid wearing your hair in a high pony tail or high bun when wearing the black beret. This will prevent the beret from laying properly.
There are two different ways you can rock the black beret. You can wear it by placing it on top of your head so that it covers your entire head, even your ears. Then push it back so that some of your hairline is showing. For added flair, you can poof up the top.
A second and more Parisian way of rocking the black beret is to place it over your head and then pulling it to the side. If you want you can pull it so that it is partially covering up one of your eyes.
Don't have a black beret? You can buy one at major department stores such as Nordstrom's and Macy's or online. Shop Style has links to many sites that sell them at a variety of price points.
Regardless of which style you choose to wear the black beret in, remember that rocking this classic, but hot look is all about confidence.
