How To Find The Perfect Hat For Your Face Shape + 19 Stylish Ways To Rock Them

There’s never a season that hats aren’t welcome but one can’t deny that something about the high temps offers style stars an excuse to strut in a plethora of options. Perhaps this is because the bustling nature of the spring and summer seasons requires that our closets reflect an upbeat vibe. Or perhaps not. But we can all agree that with spring in full view, the different women’s hat styles available are seducing us to add the perfect amount of je ne sais quoi to our ensembles regardless of which we pick.  

Hats come in different colors, textures, and designs, creating room for versatility and self-expression. From fedoras to berets, bucket hats to straw hats, any girl can update her style game and make a fabulous statement without overhauling her closet. What’s more, considering that each hat comes with its own vibe, you can call on it to add more character to any look you’re aiming for. For instance, a beret will rightly finish off a Parisian-chic take; while a baseball hat will add a hip touch to a casual offering.   how to wear hats

In the quest for learning how to wear hats, one important factor to consider is fit. Yes, most hats are universally stunning, but some flatter some face shapes better than others. How about we explore different women’s hat styles available and how they complement different face shapes?

Here’s the thing about hats: their multifunctional nature allows them to easily fit into casual and formal silhouettes but the elements of a hat need to be tied back to the overall look. For instance, a formal outfit with wild embellishments definitely wouldn’t work with a bucket hat. Rather, a fascinator is preferable.  women’s hat styles

Effortlessly owning their flexible identity, hats can additionally be paired with other accessories to make them pop even more. From statement-making earrings and scarves to eye-catching brooches and purses, a hat can be taken from basic to fab real quick.

How to wear hats: the best hat for your face type

Oval

Oval-shaped faces typically have a wider forehead than the chin, with more curves to the side of the face. The best hat type for oval faces is a bucket hat.

Round

If the width and length of your face are about equal, and you have prominent, rounded cheeks, you most likely have a round-shaped face. For a round face, go for asymmetrical shapes or slant a straight-brimmed hat into a cool angle to balance out your roundness. Fedora hats look great on round faces.

Square

Square faces are typically characterized by a forehead, cheekbones, and jawline of equal proportion. For square faces, slouchy and soft styles like berets and beanies help soften your features. women’s hat styles

Heart how to wear hats

If you’ve got a heart-shaped face, then building your hat collection should be much easier than the rest. A short-brimmed boater hat offers a great balance for a heart-shaped face.

Beyond a handy beachwear companion, straw hats can make their way to the streets in optimum style. Woven out of straw or straw-like synthetic materials, this wide-brimmed hat evokes an easy-breezy flair. This spring, style your straw hat with a floral maxi dress, oversized sunglasses, and slides for a truly effortless look. Otherwise, rock a brightly-colored, loose-fitting two-piece with your hat for the same result.

If you watched Emily in Paris, you no doubt saw a couple of instances where berets reigned supreme. The power of this hat is its chicness which can easily flow to your entire ensemble if styled correctly. Whether you work it into monochrome coordinations or you play with various hues, a beret will always make the right statement.

The thing about bucket hats is that it’s super fun. Yes, this is one hat any style girl should leverage to add a dash of excitement to her look. This season, try something exciting by pairing a long polo, comfy sneakers, and rectangular sunglasses with a bucket hat and swoon over the result. If you’d like to take things up a notch, use a statement belt to cinch your waist and highlight your silhouette. You can also rock a pink crop top, jeans, and a colorful kimono with your hat for an even more playful offering.
