A bit of history

Men's style

How to pick up beret? Here are the moments and details worth paying attention to:

  • Season. Yes, there are both warm knitted berets and light knitted or even summer ones. If you are a real fashionista, get several models for all seasons.
  • Where are you planning to go in such a headdress? If you need something casual and discreet, then choose models from medium-sized knit or knitwear. If you want to shine at a party, then get a model made of unusual fabric (for example, from velvet), decorated with rhinestones, sequins or embroidery. You will surely be the queen!
  • The size. Be sure to choose the size. Too small and narrow beret will squeeze the head, pull the hair and spoil the hairstyle. A big one, on the contrary, will fall and hang on your head like a bag. The beret should fit snugly enough to the head, but do not press it down (to check this, try placing two fingers under the edge).
  • Forms and styles. This moment is also very, very important. It is necessary to take into account the shape of the head and facial features. So, if you are a happy owner of an oval face and regular features, then choose classic models. Although you are suitable and any other. If you have a round face, choose medium size berets. If the face is long and thin, choose voluminous berets, but from light fabrics. This style will help make the face more rounded.
  • Colors. Versatile are white, black and gray, as well as beige.But this is not the limit. By choosing a bright beret, you can revive the image and refresh your face. But consider the color of skin and hair and remember that warm shades are best combined with the same warm, and cold - with cold. Also, do not forget to combine the color of the headdress with the colors of clothes and other accessories. You can choose tones of one scale, play on the contrast or choose safe and successful combinations of colors (blue and yellow, red and black and others). Take into account that the dark tones give the officiality and rigor to the image, and the bright ones refresh it.
  • Drawings and patterns. If you have small facial features, do not choose berets with large patterns, so you only exacerbate the situation. But the colorful models are also not worth choosing. But geometric or floral prints of medium size - what you need. If the features are large, you should choose a beret with a large pattern. Small patterns in this case are contraindicated.
