Hip, Hip Beret!..
Since we were just thinking of Paris yesterday, we thought we might mention the beret. As ubiquitous as aviator sunglasses, the beret offers a way to keep your head warm and take your style up a notch. Although they are a constant presence in fashion, some years berets are more visible on the street than others. This is a beret year! A tweed beret, in neutral colors, is available at Banana Republic. Kangol, the quintessential hat maker, offers the Modelaine, a classic, yet shower-proof beret, in eight colors, www.kangolstore.com. Berets can be stuffed in your purse and pulled down over your ears on an unexpectedly windy day. This is a hat that will stay put and not blow away! They are way to add color to your winter wardrobe, or you can stick with black for a bit of mystery.
