We’ve been seeing berets on the street a lot lately, and we have to say, we’re torn. Some people think a beret is pure costume, no matter how cute the girl sporting it, and others see a French style of hat appropriate at any time. We kind of think the question of whether or not to wear a beret depends on the wearer herself. While intern Britt actually looks cool and kind of urbane in hers, we know that if we ever tried it, we’d look like Chris from Project Runway had picked out our outfit that morning - or that we were going to a children's book convention, dressed as Madeline. Of course, the outfit holding it up depends on the way the hat is interpreted, too. We wouldn't suggest wearing one with a jumper and knee socks, but we would suggest jeans tucked into boots with a loose sweater and coat. Would you wear a beret? Or is this one accessory better relegated to Halloween parties?
