10 Times Male Idols Proved Berets Can Be Handsome

These K-Pop boys would fit right in on the streets of Paris.

Some people see berets as stuffy and old-fashioned. Others see them as inherently feminine. But one thing is undeniable: these 10 male idols proved berets can look handsome, hot, adorable, or a combination of all 3.

1. V (BTS)

Berets are often seen as romantic, but in this black snapback beret, V has more of a street style aura.


2. Hyunjin (Stray Kids)

Hyunjin‘s cream beret isn’t just adorable—it’s also a heartwarming tribute to the fandom, featuring STAY on the front in colorful letters.


3. Jimin (BTS)

Here, Jimin mixes modern, alternative fashion with the traditional vibe of a beret—and somehow it works.


4. Xiumin (EXO)

Given that “Blooming Day” had a retro vibe, Xiumin‘s houndstooth beret fitted the era perfectly.


5. Key (SHINee)

It’s easy to picture Key on the streets of Paris in the winter with this cosy, European-style outfit.


6. D.O. (EXO)

Before D.O. enlisted and took on a real military beret, he showed off a similar style in this shoot.


7. Mark (NCT)

A youthful beret frames Mark‘s cheeky expression perfectly.



Paired with matching suspenders, Dino‘s outfit here looks like it came straight out of a vintage French romance movie.


9. Doyoung (NCT)

Sometimes a hat can distract from a cool hairstyle or hair color, but in Doyoung‘s case, this beret only made it look better.


10. BamBam (GOT7)

What’s cooler than a beret? BamBam has the answer: a designer Chanel beret.
