Fashion Berets

Traditionally, the beret was a man’s hat, even though some women were sporting them as early as the 1800s. But the big change came in the 1930s when Coco Chanel, who was famous for taking comfortable men’s clothing and adapting it for women, made the beret a fashion statement for the ladies. Then movie stars such as Greta Garbo and Brigitte Bardot wore them in films and the beret has remained a female fashion accessory ever since. 

The larger ones you have the ability to wear this hat many ways. Also it keeps your ears warm. The Beret is finicky with fitting different people so there is velcro for adjustment which is nifty and allows different styles depending on mood or occasion.

Happy Felting and wearing,

For the Love of Wool
