While the high street may have visited and revisited many aspects of fifties and sixties fashion throughout recent years, the 1940s is still a look that proves elusive for the mainstream. Accessories including hats were a central part of the style of the forties, making pieces like this Leather Applique Beret by Vivien Sheriff well worthy of a look-in from enthusiasts of the era.
Providing an unusual twist on traditional beret styles, the soft brown leather doesn't spoil the retro appeal, with floral applique detailing adding a quaint English countryside aesthetic. The rigid structure, too, stands out from the crowd of soft-style berets that have been around for years.
The hat is now available from Urban Outfitters for £68.
