Wearing a Hat With Style
Many people feel uncomfortable and intimidated wearing a hat, and often say they don't suit hats, and yet most people say they love hats and would like to wear them. Perhaps a hat is the wrong shaped hat for your face shape, or it's too small or too tall in proportion to your body size.
Knowing how to wear a hat with style will give you more confidence, and you will feel different. Most of my hats are designed to sit on the side of the head and facing forward, as this gives a more stylish look.
Finding a hat that fits your head perfectly is your first priority as they are usually small, medium or large. Be aware some hats which are purchased online, is a one-size fits all, and usually the biggest size. This hat isn't going to sit on your head, and you'll only be frustrated, as you are at the mercy of the wind.
My biggest peeve is there is not a comb or elastic attached for the customer to secure the hat to the head. For racing events the hatinators or fascinators are the better choice as they are just perched onto your hair with a headband, or comb and elastics.
Wide brim hats are timeless, think Dior hats, and brimmed hats like cowboy styles can take on many forms. When you purchase my headwear they will come with either a comb, hat elastic, or headband. And for more security they may come with braiding inside the lining so you can attach a bobby pin to secure your hat or fascinator to your head. There is nothing worse than a head piece that keeps slipping down when you're eating or bending down.
You'll need to try on as many hats as possible to find the ones that suit you best and I've included some tips they maybe useful.
Please note, nothing is ever off limits, if you like a particular style and it makes you happy them buy that one.
Oval Shaped Face
Large brims suited here, and the taller you are the bigger the brim you can wear.
You can wear high crowns, this will add height and balance your face shape.
Choose irregular shaped brims to narrow your face, and angle your hat to the side for a perfect illusion.
Choose full brims that widen a long narrow face shape. Avoid high crowns and small brims, which only make your face long and narrow. Avoid tall, narrow shapes.
Avoid any shape that is too wide at the forehead, and choose a narrow brim that sits closer to the head.
Have the best day, Ann
