Angora always makes me feel like I'm in the 1950's a little bit. Give me a sweater set and a plaid skirt and I am ready for the sock hop. There is a fuzziness to this material that softens the light around the face and is uber flattering on, no matter how tired I feel. This year's beret has a looser fit than our wool options and I like this style if you have a larger headsize or hair that you don't want to flatten in a more fitted hat. Mine is curly and I can take this off and not have hat hair.
