Trend Alert: Berets are Back; Beyonce, Rihanna, Tiwa Savage, Simi and Other Celebs spotted Rocking it
Back in the day I loved Berets alot.
I had it in black and green. I loved pairing them withmost looks, but I had a particular look I loved. Black beret, black cropped jacket and black trouser.
I always felt powerful and mysterious, but cool when I dressed like this.
But my mum ......you know naija mums naw!! She was never comfortable with me dressing this way. She would make me change my outfit. On days I was stubborn and had my way, people will stop me and start asking questions.
It's not until an uncle of mine was blunt and tasked if I was a cultist and I told him no ( you needed to have seen the horror and shock on my face) that I stopped. He told me to stop dressing like that unless I would be mistaken for one.
Oh well, let's just say no one told me to stop wearing them. But miiieennn!! I miss my beret wearing days.
I feel it is one of the coolest fashion accessories. Glad to see it is making a major comeback
Celebs from Simi, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage and Ebuka Obi Echendu have been spotted rocking it in the past.
Beyonce took it up a notch and gave it red carpet glam when she paired it with her Azzi and Osta gown here.
Most celebs aren't wearing the one made from wool. They have opted to go for the leather ones.
If you however want to give your old berets , made from wool an extra umph..... pin brooches on them. Small brooches (that is what I used to do back in the day when I wanted to feel extra fly). If I could find my old beret, I would have shown you guys what I mean.
Trust me you'll like it. You can even pin a single, large brooch on it. Tigress head maybe😻😻.
Whatever you do, just have fun with it.
