8 Helpful Tips for Choosing Your Perfect Hat ...


Most people need tips for choosing a hat that will suit them.

Years ago, no gentleman or lady would dream of being seen in public without a hat.

But since wearing hats every day has been out of fashion for decades, we have no idea what will look right on us.2

Here are some tips for choosing a hat that will look just perfect on you …

1. Photo


One of the most helpful tips for choosing a hat is to take a photo of yourself wearing it.

Everyone has a camera phone these days, so you can try on lots of hats and take picture of each one.

It's easier to see how a hat suits you by looking at a photo than in a mirror.

2. Specialist Shop

Specialist Shop

If you're really clueless about what type of hat to buy, go to a specialist hat shop or department.2

Staff there are trained and experienced, and can advise you on which styles suit you.

They also know how to care for the hat, which is important if you're spending more on it.

3. Face Shape & Hair

Face Shape & Hair

Your face shape influences the styles of hat that you should wear.

Look for online guides to help you pick out the right hats for you.

Also consider your hair, and how you will be wearing it - this is especially important with formal hats.

If you want to wear your hair up, will the hat sit correctly?

4. Purpose


You also need to bear in mind where and for what occasion you intend to wear the hat.2

A sun hat will need a wide brim in order to protect your face from the sun, whereas a wedding hat will need to match your outfit.

If you're looking for a hat for a special occasion, take the outfit with you.
