What hat style should I wear ?
This is a question I am frequently asked and often there is no right  or wrong answer. The right hat for you is very much about finding something that you feel comfortable and confident in wearing.  However here are a few pointers for you to consider :

  • If you are looking for an illusion of extra height consider an up turn brim
  • Down turn brims can hide the face, so bear this in mind if you are going to have photographs taken
  • Consider the hat together with your overall proportions, generally taller people can carry off most styles, whereas petite frames may be overwhelmed by  large styles.  Try out the hat in front of a full length mirror to check the overall impression
  • The hat should complement your outfit
  • How the hat is trimmed can alter the character of the same hat shape, for example a wild mass of feathers and sinamay swirls will give the hat a more flamboyant feel than the same style simply trimmed with a silk band or bow
