Berets, the must Accessory for 2018

For 2018, berets are a major trend. Regardless of the fashion, they’re a potent and egalitarian instant-access accessory. Get one and you’re in. Anyone can pick one up, but it takes some front to wear, be it bravado, camp posturing or avant-garde edginess. Military wearers don’t count – I’m talking misappropriated style – but activists and assassins do, such as Che Guevara and Carlos The Jackal. For reference, turn to the Beret Project.

Beret style can transform an outfit. Combine with charcoal-grey suiting and roll-neck and one becomes a suave Situationist thinker. Don with jeans and a chunky knit and you’re a rustic turbo-folk connoisseur. For an art-slant, street-style clash, drop a beret with a tracksuit. Jack Nicholson wore his with a tux and shades to the Oscars – double potent black-tie machismo.

Note, however, there’s an unavoidable comedic element, especially in the UK, where berets provoke a basic reaction from many. Most pedestrian types opt for the Frank Spencer-referenced jibe. Fractionally more cultured snarks go for a Citizen Smith snipe. Despite this, strangers warm to you in a beret. Perhaps it’s intrigue or simply pity, but I enjoy the chat. Tolera points to another beret concern, “They’re not sexy. Which is sexy, right?”

My obsession got properly triggered by YMC’s Autumn/Winter 2017 Traum der Maschine collection last January, styled by Mark Anthony.

Berets are also très Paris 1968 uprising. They will always be synonymous with France, though the manliest style – with the leather headband and stalk – is a Basque version originally. Lock Hatters of St James’s get its Basque berets from the Boinas Elósegui factory in Tolosa, Spain. Basque men wear them flat and symmetrical, with the front tweaked forward and narrowed like a peaked cap. Naturally the French do it differently, worn as an extension of their psyche. “The beret goal is to bring out the personality we all have inside,” says the Elósegui website. And it’s right. Part of the beret’s appeal is that you can do what you want, be whomever you choose. Be it an activist’s stance or a hyper-camp aristo flex, there is so much to say with a beret.

Berets date back to the 15th century, when shepherds in southwestern France liked to wear a round brimless cap woven out of brown wool. This hat can be worn on the head to cover the sun from the rain, remove it to wipe sweat, or put it on the floor as a cushion. Later, the Basques along the border between France and Spain began to wear the hat, known as the Basque Beret.

The first army in history to wear berets was the British army.

Since then, different special forces in many countries have chosen to wear different colors of berets. Blue berets have a special place among different colors of berets because they symbolize peace.
