We’ll be the first to admit it: Hats are tricky to pull off. And with so many trendy styles in circulation right now — like the colorful, quilted pom hat and the edgy newsboy — we pretty much just want ALL THE HATS. Taking risks is good, but feeling ah-mazing is great, and finding that bangin’ accessory to complete your #OOTD is oh-so-clutch (pun definitely intended). For all these reasons and more we are head over heels for the latest in French-girl fashion: the beret. It’s classic, it’s gorgeous, and it’s French, so, obviously, we want it.

Meet our latest obsession, the Janessa Leone Ivette ($230), a black, velvet beret that’s as versatile as it is seasonless. Designed in Los Angeles and made in Italy, this cute outfit addition will pair perfectly with your favorite closet staples — skinny 501’s, a white button-up, a cardigan, and a vintage bandana or cozy scarf — to create a très chic January outfit.

Will you be rocking a beret this winter? Be sure to ‘gram your outfit and tag us on Insta @BritandCo!
