Contemporary fashion has taken a new face that is entirely different from what used to exist. Today’s fashion is inclusive as long as you have the knowledge to do it right. Before, the price of clothing increased with its level of fashion, but thanks to the influence of social media, fashion has evolved to become an expression of individuality rather than just the wearing of expensive clothes.
And when it comes to styling, wearing a hat with any outfit will make you appear more stylish. Supporting the ancient wisdom that states that “for every head, a hat”, there are varieties of hats today that when worn harmoniously can perfectly and purposely grace an occasion. On the other hand, a wrong choice of hat or having it in the wrong clothing combination can draw attention to a poor sense of style.
The following do’s and don’ts for styling the hat of your choice with your outfits will help you look confident and fashionable:
Let Your Hat Match Your Outfit
One thing having diverse options can cause is the availability of the luxury of choice which can always force things down one’s throat even when inappropriate. The fact that you can complement your dress with hats doesn’t necessarily imply that you have to. And if you must, the main outfit that is worn and not just your desire should determine your choice of hat.
If your outfit is themed after sports, then you should go for sports hats among all other categories of hats many online stores offer. You can spice and urbanize your casual outfit with New era hats and caps.
Always consider the event and audience you’re attending before choosing your hat. Beyond revealing your deficiency of fashion knowledge, this may also tell about your respect for corporate spaces.
Complement Colors, Don’t Match
Colors are attractive features of your dressing. Flashy colors especially announce your presence most often. You don’t have to match the color of your hat with that of your outfit, doing so can only make your appearance garish and distracting at the least.
Knowledge of how the complementary colors on the color wheel work can help you with the right choice of hat color to match your outfit and this knowledge can be acquired across various lifestyle blogs. Otherwise, it is overall advisable to play safely around a hat color that complements the base color of your outfits.
Choose The Right Size
You would not love to have your head squeezed under your hat, all in the name of fashion, and neither would you want the hat falling off at every slightest opportunity. Hats should comfortably sit on your head without giving you headaches. Therefore, it is important to consider the size of your head before selecting your hat.
In addition to the size, the shape of your head should also be considered. Hats with wide brims are best suited for tall people, a choice of a narrow-brimmed hat by tall people does not match their face. The facial proportions are designed such that the shape of the face gets evened out by the brim of the hat.
Start Simple, Don’t Overdo
It’s perfectly fine to start the journey through simple steps rather than taking a mighty step that can be disastrous. With time and experience gotten from simple attempts, you can get more confidence to try out fancier and stylish hat combinations without seeming off.
A Hat Is Not A Cover For Untidy Hair
The motive behind wearing a hat should be consciously checked by you. The hat should complement your overall beauty, and any dent under it can render its efforts useless. It’s advisable to style your hair to fit your hat in such a way that if the need to remove the hat arises, you would still look undauntedly beautiful. Using your hat to cover bad hair would only do one thing, and that is to worsen your hair’s appearance.
Let Your Hat Reveal You
Unless you are going on a clandestine mission, there is no need to wear a hat to cover your entire face. A cloak is available for such secret missions; if you are choosing a hat then it’s important to wear it as an accessory to adorn your public appearance and not one to make you look uncomfortable in public.
As such, it’s also important that your hats are kept tidy themselves and every hat-owner should be able to care for his type of hat.
Dress Up To Match Your Hat
Sometimes, wearing a hat can raise your standard a notch higher. Don’t forget to wear the necessary appearance that is representative of you. It would be wrong to look all blanch and dull under your hat. Accentuate your hat with some lovely smiles and facial makeup that help incline attention toward it without being too loud themselves. Your smile is a big confidence booster, and styling hats with your outfit require such.
Trying out fashion styles is as important as doing it the right way. As long as it’s not always necessary to wear a hat, all care must be taken to ensure it styles up your outfit and does not render your outfit dull when worn. The dos and don’ts as mentioned here all ensure that.
