Let's throw it back all the way to the '60s.

In the world of fashion, what comes around definitely comes back...only better. We continue to take inspiration from the yesteryears and revamp them to look ultra modern and chic. Just take for example Gabs Gibbs' accessory.

The beret has been around since the 17th century and was popularized by famous painters. The 19th century brought it back again as part of the military uniform. By the 1920s, it was mass produced and worn as sportswear before becoming a fashion statement. By the beatniks era, the berets came back and were known as a revolutionary symbol.

Now, Maria Grazia Chiuri brings back the beret as a subtle call for action. It goes back to its 1960s revolutionary roots and further underlines Dior's iconic feminist tees. Maria uses leather and pairs it with delicate fabrics and prints like tulle and florals, which is a feminine upgrade that opposes the military-inspired silhouettes it had been commonly associated with.

To pull off the rebel-ready accessory, pair it with soft pieces like floral dresses, lace, or tulle. You may also accessorize using a pair of boots and some other edgy items in leather.
