The French Beret Is The Hottest Fashion Trend This Winter. Alia And Sonam Were Spotted Wearing One

By  | 

Contrary to what most people might think, winter fashion is equally stylish as your summer style. In fact, it could be even chicer since there is a bevy of styles, designs, patterns and colours that could pair and layer to create a new outfit and make every freezing day your own fashion week. It is definitely more fun than your single summer outfit featuring a sundress and sandals, trust me. For instance, you can style your basic black overcoat million ways—with a dress, pantsuits and throw in some winter fashion add-ons like a pair of boots and a beret hat.

That reminds me; remember the cool beret looks that Lily Cooper sported in the Netflix series Emily In Paris? I don’t know about you but I haven’t stopped obsessing over her winter-worthy wardrobe full of designer clothes and trendy accessories since I’ve binged-watched the show. However, it’s her berets that I am totally stealing this season.

These French girl hats that spell sophistication and style made a comeback through the show and are here to stay at least for this year’s winters. We are seeing this fashion accessory everywhere lately from runways to streets and celebrity look books. Bollywood stars like Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor have already given it their stamp of approval. They rocked very different beret styles with their winter OOTDs and both were fashion goals. If you’ve been sticking to woollen beanies all this time (even after seeing Emily’s impeccable style), you need to switch your fashion game and stock up these berets to elevate your look.

All it really takes to turn your drab winter look into fab style is a super chic fashion accessory like a beret. It’s all about how you team it with your winter staples and oh, how you wear it. The berets are purposely worn a bit tilted to the side and slightly fluffed up and not flat. Here are some style cues from the stars on how to incorporate a beret into your winter look. Basically, a 101 on how to do it like the French girls who never get it wrong, when it comes to fashion.

Alia Bhatt looks cozy and comfy on a couch in a white pullover and denim shorts.  Now if you look at it, it’s a pretty basic outfit. However, she aces her winter style game by adding a quirky little beret with vintage studs and charms on it. So chic!

Pooja Hegde rocked the classic French belle look in colour-blocked winter outfit. She wore a pink trench coat and teamed it with a deep teal blue beret hat tilted exquisitely on one side. We love this look.

Just last week, Sonam Kapoor strolled the streets of London in an outfit that set the bars for winter fashion high. She wore a T-shirt and pleated skirt and layered it with denim jacket. She accessorised the look with red boots and a brown beret. This look is so chic, they might as well come up with a show called Sonam In Paris, or London, actually.

The key points to take away from these celebrity winter looks featuring a beret is that you can add some style edge to the dullest of winter outfits by simply adding a trendy winter hat. Pick a sophisticated beret in a solid colour and play up your look by a contrasting hue. And, most importantly, don’t forget to style it tilted on a side. That’s important!
