French Beret Street style London

The fashion sisters are back together in London again! When we brain stormed subjects for a new sisters fashion blog post, we couldn’t wait to show our readers  two different styles on how to wear the classic French beret. Romantique or Rebel, which one are you?

Rebel:

The French beret is back on the fashion scene with a vengeance! It was seen on all catwalks, from Saint Laurent to Gucci. In my opinion, the beret was unfairly underestimated for much too long. It’s such a simple accessory yet receives maximum impact. Women wearing berets looks intelligent as well as cute. But when you’re in your mid forties, do you still want to look like a girly student? Can one be too old for the beret? I don’t think so! The gallic hat is timeless and the secret is all in what you pair the it with.

Gucci lovingly styled the beret girly with ruffles and a pussy bow blouse.  I’m not a girl anymore and don’t want to pretend to be one, so this style is out of the question for me.

On the other hand, the Saint Laurent’s beret runway style has nothing playful or girly about it. The beret stands for confidence and nonchalance – attributes us women over 45+ can relate to easily!

Romantique:

I love the Parisian, classic French Style so a beret is a must-have item in my wardrobe. It’s not a fickle, trendy accessory but a timeless piece that never goes out of style. I own the beret in two colours: In classic navy blue and in orange-red to brighten up darker or monochrome outfits.

I love to pair the beret with classic French pattern such as  Breton sailor stripes or Vichy gingham checks. Add a feminine lace collar et voila, you instantly exude French charm!
