This blue beret is adorned with a removable dragonfly brooch, making it a great winter wedding hat or just a glamorous blue vintage hat to add to your daily winter wardrobe. It is a vintage inspired beret that's wonderfully adaptable as the dragonfly brooch can be removed, and worn to add a special vintage touch to a dress or coat.
Your QueenMee Accessories blue beret may well attract compliments when you wear it, and you may like to know a little about the story behind this iconic headwear as a delightful icebreaker.
Originally thought to be adopted by French shepherds, berets became popular with the Parisian artists of the left bank (including Monet, Cezanne, and Picasso among others) in the mid 19th century to 20th centuries. It could be that berets were a rather practical way to keep your head warm for those struggling artists, as well as a style statement!
Berets later became synonymous with underground resistance, when France was occupied by Germany in WW2. Up until the thirties, berets had been worn by men, but it was Coco Chanel who turned women's berets into a seductive fashion statement. Coco was known for taking men’s clothes and adapting them for women, inspiring film stars like Greta Garbo and Brigitte Bardot to wear them.
Thanks to Ms Chanel, the beret has been an iconic women’s fashion accessory for generations.
Here at Queenmee Accessories we love a wedding, winter ones best of all – as looking for a winter wedding hat offers the interesting challenge of warmth, as well as beauty. This blue winter beret will fit the bill on both counts, keeping your ears and head super warm, while the dragonfly brooch charms in the style stakes. Try wearing your blue beret with a Chanel style jacket, and emulate Coco's vintage style. Alternatively wear your blue vintage beret with a blue vintage dress, as we have in our images, to make a striking colour statement.
QueenMee Accessories brings wonder to brooches! The removable dragonfly brooch on your blue beret is crafted from enamel work, and glimmering rhinestones, to create a colourful vintage brooch. The dragonfly brooch adds a playful touch, so your vintage hat is transformed into a charming, signature piece.
This blue beret would make a gorgeous gift. Queenmee Hair Accessories arrive lovingly gift-wrapped, in tissue and an organza gift pouch, and we can add a personal gift message to your winter hat – just ask.
