Seize The Beret - A Hat History & How-To


You might recognize this round, flat-crowned hat as one of Picasso's favorite toppers, an accessory of the Black Panther movement or even just as a line in a Prince song. But, rumor has it, this iconic headgear has actually been around since the Bronze Age. More recently (in the 1800's), France and Spain began mass-producing the beret as military uniform and, over time, it has become a symbol of power and independence heralded by an array of individuals including artists and nobility alike.


Berets are worn by all sexes and in a variety of manners - tilted to one side, centered or set back on the noggin. They're great for keeping warm, concealing the dreaded "bed head" or just finishing a look. So, slip on your MS beret, in whatever way you feel comfortable, and know that you're making a statement that's not only strong but timeless.
