Everyone seems to be taking very literal cues from French fashion (or at least its stereotypes?) as they get dressed for Paris Fashion Week. The #1 It-accessory making French-girl clichés cute again is the beret. While some may feel that the beret has never lost its interest, we're here to exemplify just how of-the-moment the hat really is. Remember the hats that walked down last season's Dior runway? The military-style beret Rihanna donned to Dior's cruise show? Yes, those berets.

Instead of a cozy wool beret, fashion girls are opting for a sleeker look. A leather finish gives the hat a timely fall update and makes it feel more 2017-appropriate than costume-y French. To prove our point, we spotted every cool girl from Patricia Manfield to Carolina Daur making the leather cap ultra-chic.
