THE STYLIST´S ADVICE
How to wear hats ?
Whether you’re thinking about wearing a fedora, a sun hat or a really stunning fashion hat, you need to follow the same simple rules to pull it off in style. From the right proportions for hats, in relation to both your frame and face shape, to the right style tips.
You have thousands hats out there to choose from but a fabulous option is a floppy wool hat or felt hat — both winter appropriate and glamorous. The floppy hat makes a woman look so elegant. The way the wide brim shields over one eye is so alluring. It’s a beautiful choice to add some glam to an outfit. And you don’t have to be a posh lady who brunches with other housewives while sippin mimosas. Anybody can pull off a floppy hat, even you. You just gotta find the one to match your style and personality.
Here are 3 tips to think about when you will hunt for your perfect hat
1. Fit. Always, always get a hat that fits snugly on your head. A wide brim will have a tendency to get carried by the wind leaving you to fear each gust, wondering when and what direction your hat will go flying off. Hat pins can help (long pins that go through the hat and catch some hair on the underside to help keep your hat in place) but they won’t do much if your hat is plain too big. You also don’t want too tight which can lead to headaches and the dreaded hat head.
2. Style. If, like me, the word “fedora” sends shivers of Joey Jeremiah down your spine – fear not! There are lots of different shapes and styles. A wider brim hat will give you more relief from the sun but, as I mentioned, can get literally carried away in blustery weather. A shorter brim hat can be an easier entry point as it will sit easily on your head and won’t overtake your look.
3. Colour. In most cases it feels like when in doubt choose black. In this case, though, I think it’s actually easier to start with a hat in soft hue. I recommend you look at olive greens, bordeaux reds, warm creams or beige browns. A black hat can feel severe whereas a hat in a muted colour will add to your look and help you coordinate the rest of your outfit.
Finally, a healthy dose of confidence goes with every new look. Pick a hat you really love, take inspiration from these pics and you’ll look your best, too.
