It is a unisex hat. Apart from using this as a cover up for a bad hair day, it can be worn stylishly with a vintage shirt and a billowing skirt.
- Beret Cap: It is an old fashion seen usually in pre-roman times by the military people. Beret is a French word meaning “woolen cap worn by peasants”. In today’s world, this cap is usually seen in India, worn by most of the male senior citizens. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was seen wearing a Beret cap sometime back. A beret cap should always be bought in a contrast color to your hair. You can make a bun of your hair or a low pony tail to wear a beret cap. Hair can also be left open, so as to highlight the color of the beret cap. Small studs or long earring can be worn along with a beret cap for an evening.
