Classic & glamour style

The French beret was worn by plenty of celebrities  including the famous Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourg, who helped to bring a touch of glamour and elegance to this accessory. Dressing up with a simple suit and a beret is the key to look good. However, it is possible to wear it with a roll neck jumper and coupled, for women, with a flared skirt and a pair of patent leather court shoes to complete the sophisticate style.

An entirely black outfit sounds like a Parisian touch but the soft, round cap works with a variety of outfit's colors like grey, dark red, navy or khaki.

For women, white is also an adequate and ideal option during snowy days. Pairing a creamy white fluffy winter coat with pastel colors emphasizes a delicate and timeless style. It is also the perfect opportunity to light up upcoming cold winter nights.
