Lady Hat

lady-hatMatch the proportions of your hat to your face and stature. Taller women can wear large hats as long as the brim is never wider than the shoulders. If your face and body are small, the hat should be smaller than average so it doesn’t overpower you.
The hat needs to balance out the whole look. It’s all about getting the proportion right, so the hat doesn’t overpower you. The taller you are, the larger the hat can be. The smaller you are, the neater it should be. However, the brim of the hat should never be wider than your shoulders.
The hat should be worn low – about 2cm above the eyebrows
Match the style of the hat to your face shape. A woman with a round face should wear a hat with a high crown and wide brim. Oval faces can wear any style of hat. Women with long faces look best in hats with a wide brim and should avoid high crowns. A woman with a heart-shaped face should avoid a hat with a high crown and stick to medium-crowned hats with a medium-sized brim. Look at your profile when considering a hat, not just the front.
Consider skin tone. If your skin has a rosy cast you will look good in hats that are pink, red or rust. Dark-skinned ladies or those with yellow undertones look good in any colour of hat. Dark hats are more becoming than light ones.
Control your hair. No hat will look good if it’s perched on a messy head. Long or medium hair should be slicked back into a low ponytail. Short hair should be tucked behind the ears. A little hair should show from under the hat, to soften the look.
Consider the outfit you’re wearing and the season. A tailored business suit needs a more formal hat than a floaty dress does. Avoid the impulse to match everything. If your suit is monochromatic, try a printed hat. Pair a leather jacket with a tweed hat, or a tweed jacket with a knit hat
Oval shape face – goes well with all types of hats.
Triangle shape face – hats that sit high on your forehead.
Square shape face – tilt the brim of your hat, wear it high on the forehead. Wear large earrings.
Elongated shape face – sunhats, floppy hats and other large brimmed hats. Pull hat brim down to your eyebrows.
Heart shape face – straight hats where the crown is wider than your cheekbones.
Round shape face – angular hats and large hats. Wear large earrings.
Narrow shape face – full hats that are not tall or narrow.
Wide shape face – pillbox style hats.
High forehead – pull the brim of the hat down to the eyebrows.
Large nose – angle larger hats toward the front of the head, not the back.
