Leather Applique Beret by Vivien Sheriff


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.

Leopard Cloche Hat from River Island

Many fashion designs which draw on a number of eras for inspiration can go wrong, with clashing influences sitting uneasily together. This Leopard Print Cloche by River Island, however, has done so with a result that's got great kitschy appeal.

The leopard print has a nod to styles from fifties pinup to seventies safari, while the cloche is traditionally pre-War as a hat shape. The wider brim, however, ties into the seventies aspect once more, creating a hat that's updated without losing it's retro roots to modern fashion.

It's available online from ASOS for £22.
