A Brief History of Beret Hats
Historical evidence shows that beret hats have been around for thousands of years - we can trace them back to the Etruscans and Cretans in ancient Greece. But the modern beret that we know and love, often called a Basque Beret, originated in the 18th century with shepherds around the Pyrenees mountains, which sit at the southern border of France. These French beret hats were probably felted by hand, formed over the knee to create a round shape for the head.
With the Industrial Revolution in the 1800s came mass production, and by the 1920s, factories were producing millions of berets for sale on the global market. Over the years since then, it’s been adopted by a variety of political movements and military groups and is often associated with bohemian artists such as Picasso. The western world has celebrated it as a trendy fashion accessory for nearly a century.

How to Wear a Beret
The most well-known way to wear a beret is probably the fashion style, with the fullness on top draped slightly over the side of the head. This asymmetrical look lends a unique, confident flair to an outfit. Another way to wear it is the pancake style, with the fullness flat on the top of your head, which appears more conservative. You could also try the halo way, centered and slightly pushed back; a pair of Fake Bangs would complement this nicely. Choose whichever method best suits you and your personal taste.
How to Style Your Women’s Beret Hat
Since the shape of a beret tends to be soft and round, these hats usually look best when paired with strong lines. Try a trench coat or denim jacket with your beret hat. Avoid billowy fabrics and oversized silhouettes, choosing clean pieces like blazers and straight cut jeans instead. If you must wear something with lots of drape, choose a fabric that contrasts the texture of the beret, like a beret with texture to complement a gauzy blouse. Of course, the true secret is to exude a certain je ne sais quois – confidence and a radiant attitude.
