“The beret mostly helps make my simple way of dressing more interesting, like for a party or somewhere where I’m supposed to be a little more dressed up! I think I can wear a beret with quite anything, since there’s so many different styles and colors, like sparkly, or leather, red, blue, and more! 
“Wearing the beret doesn’t mean wearing a total Parisian or French look. I like to wear the beret as I would wear a cap—in a casual way or in a very minimalist way. It is the perfect retro touch to an outfit, which is why I like to wear it with a modern look.”
