Daily distraction – Mini Berets

Apologies for the lack of posts this week, Lanky girl has been feeling rather under the weather. Recently I have become a bit obsessed with the style of the 1940s and today I found myself looking online to see if I could find a retro style hat. On my new favourite website Etsy they had these beautiful mini berets. I’ve always loved berets after watching Lauren Bacall in The Big Sleep. Berets suit most people and they always make the wearer look chic and sophisticated.

 

A gorgeous hat for the races maybe.

 

Soft and ethereal stand out at that wedding!
Rockabilly chick!

 

For that wow factor!

If you are feeling kind of creative you could buy a plain beret and decorate it to your liking. McCulloch and Wallis have a vast range of plain berets. Ebay is a also a good place to find ribbons and bows and other gems to make your beret look unique. A nice simple project that is sure to get you compliments when your done. Something like the picture below is very easy to make.

Add a feather and voila tres chic!

 

Roll on fashion week!
