I’ve yet to come across a hat I didn’t at least want to try on, but I know some of you are still hesitant about donning a kooky bowler or any other peculiar headgear. But while it’s still winter I urge you to think beyond just beanies and caps and try a beret. Yes a beret, that chapeau that chic French girls wear. Don’t worry, baguette and accent not required. After some recent appearance on the runways of Isabel Marant and Gucci, the beret is in full swing on the streets of Europe and New York City. Best yet, a beret will keep you warm and add a certain je ne sais quoi to any model off-duty outfit. Need some more inspiration on how to wear this trending accessory? Click through to style notes to see how the girls on the street are pulling it off. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

isabel marant waves

Back in October, as the Spring 2014 Ready-To-Wear shows came to a close, Isabel Marant was having a moment. Her line was deemed a favorite among the fashionable crowd, and her collection for H&M sold out within days. The clothes were great and the hair was even better. On the runway and on the the street, the Marant girls wore mussy waves. The new collection, shown last week in Paris, was comfortable, functional, and even polar vortex appropriate. The models wore easy and sexy, undulating hair, a nice pairing to the cool-vibe of the clothes. Clearly this style has staying power and is turning into it’s own classic.
