The Emily in Paris beret look is the only thing we want to be channeling this winter after binge-watching season two of the popular drama on Netflix. Not only does the series make us yearn for a Parisian adventure but the fashion continues to inspire our wardrobe choices.
Channeling her inner French chic is always at the core of protagonist Emily's style and her beret is essential to that. Just like Gossip Girl's Blair Waldorf, she always seems to style it impeccably and frankly, it's made us want to sport one of our own. In fact, earlier this year, Lyst (opens in new tab) reported a 100% increase in search for red berets, which tells us all we need to know about the rising demand.
Even those of us who usually don't consider ourselves 'a hat person' began leaning into the idea of wearing the quintessential French accessory. Mainly because Emily, an American marketer from Chicago who had never been to Paris before moving to the city for work, took to it with ease.
Whether you love it or hate it, Emily in Paris has had us all talking over the past year. From drooling over hot chef Gabriel (played by Lucas Bravo) and newcomer Alfie, played by British TV heartthrob Lucien Laviscount, to pointing out the endless cliches on the show (and not to mention all the Golden Globes controversy), we can all agree on one thing—Emily knows how to rock a beret.
As much a favorite among celebrities and style icons as it is for Emily, the trend has been spotted on everyone from Rihanna and Emily Ratajkowski to Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner over the years—all of whom have put their own twist on the staple.
If like us, you are dying to join the club too, then we know exactly where you can shop the look. Plus, we've got a slew of inspiration to help you get creative with it.
