A beret is a soft, round type of hat. They are similar to caps, but without the peak at the front. Berets are usually made of felt or a similar material. Berets are often worn in France.

Berets are worn as part of the uniform of many military and police units across the world. Many other organizations also wear berets for different purposes.[1]
