A beret a day……

 

 

I have a deep love for berets. Over the years, I have collected them in (almost) every colour. A beret can change any outfit from bland to beautiful: an all black outfit with a bright coloured beret on top? Perfection! A beret can also serve as camouflage: bad hair day? Never when wearing a beret! Another perk of berets: it’s good for your French. Everybody starts to speak French to you once you’re wearing one. I wonder why??

QUALITY

Berets don’t have to be expensive. On the ones in the colours I know I won’t be wearing often, I don’t want to spend too much. But don’t go too cheap. I have bought some at Aliexpress for next to nothing but those berets are shapeless and made of the flimsiest material.  Better check stores or websites like Accessorize and Asos.com for reasonable prized ones of better quality. The berets I wear most often ( black, red, navy and raspberry) are from my favourite luxury department store in Amsterdam: De Bijenkorf. I have had them for years and they’re still going strong!
