I don’t discriminate when it comes to hats. I pretty much own or have tried on every silhouette imaginable – with one exception: the beret. Even the Francophile in me just assumed the cliché French chapeaux would certainly be most unfavorable to my large tête and round face. But thanks to Alessandro Michele and Luisa Beccaria, I was inspired to try on my first beret on a recent hat shopping excursion with a girlfriend. Instead of shits and giggles, my reaction was more along the lines of oooh-la-la! I was surprised how versatile and flattering it was and I loved that you could wear it so many ways, slouchy like a beanie for a more boyish look or slightly tipped for a more feminine feel. I loved it so much that I bought two. So what do you think? Mime or chic?
