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 number one 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 show you just how of-the-moment the hat really is. Remember the hats that walked down last season's Dior runway?

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.
