The Large, Lightweight, Slouchy Beret: The Hat That Looks Good on Anyone!

I love the slouchy beret! It looks good on everyone because it sits on the head without having to manipulate the hair. Hair can stay exactly in place with this kind of hat. You don’t have to tuck your hair away or move your bangs, unlike some other types of hats because it’s also not too tight on the head. It also doesn’t leave a visible hat line like baseball caps.

Plus, it looks good with almost anything you wear! You can wear it ultra glam with sparkly clothes and earrings like J. Lo:

Or you can pull it off with an ultra hippie look and stick straight hair:

Or a hippie dress like Lindsay Lohan with your hair wavy:

Or go all out in girly curls:

Rachel Bilson also pulls off the look in a striped dress and super straight hair:

I like how the light beret she used contrasted with her dark hair. You can wear it with a punk, emo, or grunge look:

You can wear it with a cute dress and tights for a girly chic look:

I love the way Asian hipster girls wear it all mixy-matchy:

You can wear it with a casual outfit:

Or you can wear it with a more formal outfit:

Mary J. Blige and Rachel Bilson even wore them on the red carpet!

You can wear it with your hair tied back in a low ponytail:

Or just hide all your hair!

You can wear it with a shaggy, layered cut and bangs:

It even looks good with short hair! Selma Blair and Rihanna both don gray berets:


It even looks good from any angle:

The slouchy beret is also an all-season accessory! You can pair it off with a bright scarf, dark clothes, and knee high boots during the cold seasons like Keri Russel or a sweater dress layered over a wispy dress:

I like look of a bright beret with monochromatic clothing like Ashley Olsen and Nicole Richie:

You can wear it with a spaghetti strap shirt like Lauren Conrad during the summer:

Or just a simple racerback tank top:

You can wear it with a lightweight, white sundress in the spring:

You can wear a Lightweight, Slouchy Beret, airy one that matches a shrug like Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama:

Even a simple shift dress with sleeves in a bright color looks great with a beret! I love the teal and purple combo of this outfit with gray tights. So cute!

I say, the girlier, the better! I love this look:

Or really, it doesn’t get girlier than floral!

Everyone’s getting in on the fun! Lightweight, Slouchy Beret

    Heeey, one question, when you wear it like the hippie girl, do you use hairpins to keep it in place? i have a million benies but don’t use them a lot because I think they might fall down mid-something

  15. MidoriLei

    Well Rita in my experience they hold up pretty good because slouchy berets unlike beanies are snug around the head and then loosen up everywhere else, but the snug part really does stay on your head!

  16. Finley Mitchell

    I can say that Chris Brown is an A-Hole becuase he beat and treated Rihanna badly~~.
