How to Wear a Hat and Look Fabulous
What comes to mind when you think of wearing a hat? Or are you not sure exactly how to wear a hat and look fabulous?
Well for some, hats can seem somewhat seasonal or even unfashionable – especially if you’re not a “hat person”. However: I am here today to change that belief. I personally think hats can be worn any time of year, for pretty much any occasion. Even in the blistering heat of the summer, I love a good floppy straw hat (like this adorable one); and in the chilly winter, a cute beanie is to die for (like this one by Helen Kaminski!)
Some more of my favorite styles that I also wanted to mention include:
Fedoras take a unique personality to pull off; however, I’ve found that people who branch out and try fedoras often look FAN-TAS-TIC! I love, love, love this fedora from BRIXTON; its loose style is classic yet modern all at once.
- Sailor Hat or Fiddler Caps
This is the epitome of the fall time hat, in my opinion. These hats make me feel straight out of a Vogue shoot, and oh-so-chic. This is one of my personal favorites.
- Knitted Hats and Beanies
Created by the iconic Kate Spade, this style is what makes the perfect beanie or knit hat; classic, flirty, and cozy!
- Ball Caps
- Felt Floppy Hats
Floppy hats are the definition of vintage bombshell couture. This one corresponds with pretty much any gorgeous, flirty summer ensemble.
Also – if you don’t think hats are flattering on you, try finding one that flatters your face shape. For example, a wide-brimmed hat or floppy hat is recommended for pretty much every face shape, whereas a boater hat tends to mainly suit oval and heart faces best, while fedoras suit round and square shapes. It’s simply a matter of playing around with styles and finding what works for you and being willing to embrace your unique inner fashionista.
I definitely recommend shopping around and trying new things…what you find might surprise you. Personally, my favorite place to pick up a new hat is at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack. I adore their varying designs, and I love finding different ways to spice up my look and wardrobe. I’m all about trends, but I love going my own way fashion-wise and experimenting…don’t you?
