Today's Everyday Fashion: The Beret


Guys, can we please make berets a thing, stat?! The inspiration is cute as a button, so I used a beret originally purchased as part of a Halloween costume to create an outfit with a similar vibe. While I love this look, there's also something about it that doesn't necessarily feel achievable for real life. It feels a bit like a costume (perhaps because that was the hat's original use?!), and the last thing I ever want to be in my clothes is self-conscious or distracted by what I'm wearing. I'm usually a fashion rebel but berets may not be mainstream enough yet, even for me. What's your take on berets?
