1. They camouflage cray-cray hair
A beret instantly hides unruly baby hair so you don’t walk around looking like a mad scientists who hasn’t slept in days.
Added bonus: If the thought of brushing your mane sounds exhausting, a beret is your best friend! Just tuck those unruly strands underneath a chic beret.
2. They make great pop songs
Prince wrote a song about a raspberry beret found at a secondhand store. Can you imagine Raspberry Beret being something like Raspberry Bucket Hat or Raspberry Newsboy Cap or Raspberry Beanie? I don’t think so!
I would totally wear that cloud suit.
3. Cats love them!
Whether they’re wearing them, sleeping on them or attempting to tear them apart with their claws (ahem, *Rosie*), cats certainly love berets.
4. Berets effortlessly work with your favorite bold lip
Berets and bold lips are purrfection. This one is Chanel Eclosion, by the way, from the Spring-Summer 2021 collection.
5. No ears required!
Unlike earrings, glasses or a face mask, berets doesn’t rely on your ears for support (really, our ears are doing so much these days), so rejoice in your ear freedom as you jauntily place a beret atop your head.
6. An equal-opportunity hat
Both ladies and gents wear berets, so if your significant other has one you’re fond up, take note — it’s totally up for grabs!
7. A hat with history
The beret has long graced the heads of many iconic individuals throughout history, and they’ve often been symbols of revolution.

9. You can have a beret for every mood
Depending on the material and size of said beret, you can either go chic and minimalist; or big, floppy and bold. There’s a beret for every occasion.
