Best Berets 2020 Fashion Week
Highsnobiety / Eva Al Desnudo

The humble beret has been around long enough to cement itself as an enduring stylistic presence. One could even go as far as to argue that it is as iconic as the white T-shirt or grey hoodie.

Fast forward to today, and the beret’s story continues to live on, albeit in a weird state of style limbo. It never really surmounted to the levels of hype key to contemporary “trends,” but nevertheless persevered as a defining staple. With all this being said, we at Highsnobiety feel this humble headwear savior might be on the brink of having a (i.e. another) real moment.

So, without further ado, shop a list of the best berets to buy in 2020 below.
