More from Vogue: "Glazed NYC"

According to fashion magazine Vogue, “wearing a beret isn’t easy”. I quote: : “These days the wool topper may invite cringe-worthy connotations, like a wannabe Francophile or a pseudo-intellectual.”
But there is hope, as “the designers of accessories label Glazed NYC, Shelby Macklin and Banna Gebremichael, have given the beret a fresh new life and a makeover. The cool, revamped classics come in tomato red crushed vinyl or zebra-print faux fur, while the boldest piece in lime green matte vinyl—ironically christened with the straightlaced name The Peggy Beret—is said to “spice up any ’fit like a jalapeño” and is inspired by Lil’ Kim’s outfit in “Crush on You.” The kicky hats are a far cry from the black felt pieces worn by the usual Left Bank suspects like Françoise Hardy or Brigitte Bardot. According to Macklin.”

“Though their berets are swiftly gaining popularity, Macklin admits it can take some chic bravado to wear the headwear.”
That must make me, and you I guess, true super heroes!
"Berets enhance your whole look. If you wear all black on a daily basis, which most people in New York especially do, and you put on one of the berets, your outfit gets 10 times better.”
