Always take the correct size of the hat to feel comfortable.

There is nothing like standing out of the crowd at all times and one thing that makes this magic is a hat.

Hats could be worn to weddings, parties, church, funerals, beach, sporting events among others.

A hat is a cover for the head. It can be in any form, soft or structured, smart, casual or practical but it has a shape given to it, as opposed to a simple wrap or scarf.

It has had much significance over the years and can be worn for many reasons.
Ladies have many reasons for wearing hats. For instance, to sow status, as part of a uniform, act as sun shade, for reasons of hygiene or protection, enhance height, hide hair or lack of it.

Throughout history, hats identified social standing and removing a hat was a gesture of respect. In the “olden days, men took off their hats in Christian churches, when they entered someone’s home, when greeting their boss, and always in the presence of a lady.

For any hat, it is important to consider your face shapes prior to choosing it. It really makes sense since the hat will not have the best effect unless it suits you well.

Women with a strong jaw line are advised to pick a hat with a round or tilted brim, especially one that comes down partially over your face.

Fedora hats are also acceptable for this face shape. Wear it a bit tilted on one side in order to break the symmetry of your square face.

If your face is square, you can also get a cowboy hat with a wide, low brim. However, hats that are totally curled up aren’t for you.

For those with round faces, it is better to take wide brimmed hats, since the wider the hat is, the narrower your face will look.

Different types of hats are worn differently. Always take the correct size of the hat to feel comfortable. It should not be too tight to cause a headache; neither should it be too loose to fall off from a slight wind.
