Vintage Beret with a Story

Your QueenMee Accessories beret may well attract compliments when you wear it, and you may like to know a little about the history of the iconic beret to get the conversation flowing. Originally thought to be invented by French shepherds, berets became popular with the Parisian artists of the left bank (including Monet, Cezanne, and Picasso amongst others) in the mid 1800s to early 1900s. It could be that berets were a very practical way to keep your head warm when a struggling artist couldn’t pay his rent! Berets later became a symbol of underground resistance, in occupied France in the second World War.  Up until the 1930s, berets had been worn by men, but it was Coco Chanel who turned ladies berets into a glamorous fashion statement. Coco was known for taking men’s clothes and transforming them for women, inspiring film stars like Greta Garbo and Brigitte Bardot to sport them. Thanks to Coco, the beret has been an iconic women’s fashion accessory for decades.

Winter Wedding Hat

Here at Queenmee Accessories we love a wedding – and looking for a winter wedding hat offers the practical challenges of warmth, as well as style. This warm winter beret will fit the bill on both counts, keeping your ears and head super cosy, while the gold and pearl brooch dazzles in the style stakes. Try wearing your black beret with a Chanel style jacket, as we have in our images, as a tribute to the Coco story. Alternatively wear your vintage beret with a golden brown fur coat, to draw out the warmth of the pearls and stay snuggly warm in all weather.

Hat with Jewelled Brooch

The removable brooch on your black beret is crafted from luminous faux pearls, and sparkling rhinestones, and finally plated to create a stunning gold brooch. Pearls and rhinestone are a striking combination, as they both catch the light beautifully, so your winter hat is transformed into a unique, signature piece.

This black 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.

This black beret measures 27cm diameter, and 14cm diameter for the inner circle where the head fits. The pearl and gold brooch measures approximately  4.8 cm wide by 4.8 cm long.
