A hat is more than just an accessory – it’s a state of mind, a message to the world. Can you wear a hat? Most certainly yes!
Here’s how curiosity, a little playful exploration, and a bit of ‘hattitude’ can kickstart your love affair with hats:
- Become familiar with your own basic face shape (oval, round, square, long, triangular, heart) and your body type. Find more info in my Hat-hunting Tips and learn which hat silhouettes might best suit you.
- Consider the ‘when/where’ you want to wear a hat – is it for practical, every day? protection? special occasion? vacation? This helps to narrow down the search.
- The most help of all will come from experimenting – that means trying on a lot of different hats. There’s a wide variety of hat styles to choose from – so have fun with the hunt. You’re on an adventure in learning what style works well for your features, feels comfortable, and fits your lifestyle.
And while you’re out there, do check out the variety of interesting street-fashions. Often you’ll find it’s the finishing touch of a great hat that goes a long way to express the wearer’s individual style and personality. We’ve been adorning ourselves with hats and headwear for millennia, and for many different, evolving reasons. In modern times like ours, styles come and go through typical fashion cycles, but classic well-made hats with longevity remain more popular today than ever.
Have fun discovering your new favourite hat!
