Think of the last person you saw wearing a beret.
It was that guy at university who smoked roll ups all the time and got really worked up in your Jonathan Swift seminar, wasn't it?
Or maybe it was you, you fool, during an ill-fated spell in 6th form when you knew too many Rage Against The Machine lyrics and too little about history to realise Communism is, at best, a dodgy concept.
Whoever it was, you can be certain they looked B-A-D, because of all the hats in all the world, the beret is the trickiest to wear without looking like a tosser. They are the first things tossers reach for. In the tosser revolution, we'll all be wearing them whether we want to or not.
But if you think that rule applies to Emily Ratajkowski, you better think again.
Em-Rat, the Instagram sensation your mate who's going through a tough time at the mo thirst likes every time she posts, can wear whatever the hell she wants and still clock up 650k likes. She can even do so while imitating a tongue out emoji, as demonstrated above.
Imagine if you tried this. Just picture the vitriol that would rain down on you, the timid withdrawal from social media and the soul searching that would follow. Doesn't bear thinking about does it?
Berets are for tossers, and until now, only one person in history has pulled one off without looking like one.
And now there are two. Because in 2017, people who take risks on Instagram are the truest revolutionaries we have.
