Twenties • The 1920's Beret

about 1923 to 1934

The beret in the twenties was usually worn pulled down as shown here.
This followed a similar fashion to the Cloche hats of the time. The slightly earlier Tam O'Shanter is also seen pulled down over the ears but was mostly worn higher as a Scottish bonnet

In the following decade 1930's Berets were worn perched on one side in similar fashion to the hats of the time.
