I have a love for berets that just doesn’t go away. I feel like berets are this thing that only fashionable women care about and the rest of the world is judgmental about this style choice. Recently I saw a blog post article titled “How to Wear a Beret and Not Look Like An Asshole.” This made me realized how silly I must look wearing a beret around town, especially a pink one. But personally, I like the touch of whimsy and I try not to spend a lot of time worrying about what others might think of my outfit choices.
I have three berets in three different colors that I wanted to style for winter. My favorite beret is the tan one which you can see me wearing with many outfits like here, here, here, and here. It is a versatile hat that can be warned with any colored outfit and its the kind of accessory that adds a touch of classic European style. Styling colors are much more tricky and the bolder the color is the more I struggle. But I like testing out different colors by expanding my horizons. I love neutral outfits but I also love being whimsical with my style too.
I decided to style this baby pink beret with my white polka dot skirt. This polka dot is one of my favorite pieces in my closet and I especially love dressing it up for the holidays like here. Or dress it down for a more subtle and classic look like here. Whenever I wear polka dots I like mixing prints like this light gray striped sweater from Rebecca Taylor and my color block cardigan from Madewell. Adding crazy print with subtle colors like white and gray are a great match for light pink. It is the perfect girly winter outfit and would easily be a fun outfit for the holidays. Just add some glitter and sparkly jewelry and your set!
What whimsical styles do you like to experiment with? The more I color outside of the lines the more I feel unique! The number one place I get my whimsical style inspiration is Gilmore Girls. Lorelai, Rory, Lane, and Sookie all have an outlandish style that somehow looks good and there is always so much personality with every outfit choice. Adding personal touches always makes getting dressed in the morning more fun! Happy Monday everyone I hope you have a festive week with all your holiday preparations!!
