As I mentioned on my Instagram recently, I'm in serious denial about not being French— or anything remotely as cool— and yet, my beret addiction persists. If I'm not wearing a beret, chances are that's because I'm in my pyjamas, and Boyfriend probably wouldn't take too kindly to such a bold bedtime statement (think: Parisian Ebeneezer). I just can't help myself, though— they seriously go with everything (again, PJs notwithstanding), and I love how berets always seem to breathe new life into old outfits while expertly masking day-two hair. Genius

The only colour lacking from my ever-expanding collection now seems to be white, but you better believe I'm actively trying to resolve that issue (important stuff happening here, people!). Because if I stop to consider what constitutes an 'iconic' beret— as I'm often left doing after any amount of time spent on Tumblr— I always come back to black, red, camel and white (and of course green, if you're coming from a military perspective). And having already secured the first three (I just don't think green is in the cards for me), naturally I feel compelled to complete this little 'holy quad' of beret colours. Hey man, there are far worse ways to fill my time. xx

  1. I love that you are putting together a collection of berets. It's not a trend I think I can rock, but you look amazing in it! I just love the way the red pops in this outfit.
