There is something about wearing a beret that I love…
As soon as I put one on, my whole look would instantly be given a European feel to it…
Except for summer, I wear berets all year round.
Not only are they très chic, they are also very easy to be rolled up and carried around.
Whenever I happened to be in Montmartre, Paris, I just loved seeing those artists in their berets. I jockingly called Montmartre the ‘home of berets’! I guess that’s the European or should I say French – feel it gives to the world. Well, according to the history, a mass production of berets began in the 19th century’s France and Spain, clearly, the association with these countries remains.
I’ve had this red beret – the one I wore in this picture – for years. Although lately I seem favouring those softer colours, such as cream, grey and dusty pink, this deep red beret is still on my favourite list!
