Women and Red Berets

Supposedly, women in pre-Civil War Málaga wearing red berets were all prostitutes (Gerald Brenan in his highly recommended book The Face of Spain). 
Couldn't be further from the truth these days, of course and suggesting otherwise would be very bad for my business, but red is definitely the favourite colour of my female customers.  
In fashion, in daily wear, even the president of Argentina wears a boina roja
