Hats & Hair Too!
There are some basic rules after you have found ‘Your” perfect hat, now you have to decide how to wear your hair with it. A hat portrays a style, it makes a statement and having the perfect “hair do” is what’s going to bring this look home for you. Basically, the hat will let you know what to do with your hair. A couple examples: a structured hat such as a “bowler” goes well with a more polished hairstyle like a sleek low ponytail, which tends to emphasize the jawline. On the other end, a hate like a fedora is worn most flattering with down, loose, wavy “70”s hair.
To avoid that hideous post-hat flatness, we suggest actually doing your hair before wearing your hat for the day! Sounds crazy, but what if you have to take it off!?! You need to be prepared to not have to rock the “hat head” look. Try flipping your hair in the opposite direction you usually wear it. If you have to take your hat off, just flip it back in the direction you usually wear it as this builds volume!
It’s apparent that wide- brim hats, amongst many other varieties have become the new fashion statement. They have pretty much taken over the whole scarf trend (not saying that scarfs aren’t great) but for years we have been using scarves to embellish our ensembles. You can wear them for so many reasons in any kind of weather to add a little personality to your style.
I know it’s hard for some of us not to be intimidated by wearing a hat; they can be a complicated accessory to pull off. Finding the right one for you and its purpose is the key to finding comfort in rockin’ a hat. First, deciding whether you are choosing to wear a hat for its functionality or to just add some pizazz to a day time outfit. If you’re not careful you can look like you’re trying too hard.
There are so many different kinds of hats…how do you choose? There are the wollen skull caps to keep us warm, the wide-brimmed straw version hats to shade us from the suns beating rays and of course the ever-so-effortless The ever so popular fedora is the perfect hat to take poolside or on vacation as it pairs perfectly with skinny jeans, bikinis and dresses! Whether any hat flatters you, is like everything else in fashion, it’s all about proportion!!!
