Wide brim hats may fall behind in the keep-you-warm department when compared to beanies, but they definitely win in the make-you-look-great field. Wide brim hats are a perfect, practical and stylish option that can save you on bad hair days and make jeans and tees look more chic and put-together. What follows are a few steps that you need to take in order to make this type of hats work.
First of all, you need to consider your face shape. Opt for a hat with a smaller brim if you are one of those people that have a diamond shaped face. Contrary to that, if you have a long shaped face, your best choice would be a hat with a larger and wider brim. And lastly, if you have a square face, you should opt for larger floppy hats or hats that come with rounded curves and edges.
Next, it is important to know that these marvelous head-wear designs can be paired with almost anything you want to wear, starting from leather jackets to plain t-shirts, jeans, suits, skirts and much more. What makes this whole process simpler is that these hats can be worn whole year round. So, regardless of the type of day – whether you are at the beach, on your way to work or having a relaxed day out, you can still include wide brim hats into your outfit.
For instance, a plain black wide brim hat would look awesome with a striped sweater which you can tuck into a black (even leather) skirt. You can complete the look with ankle boots. Another design that is quite popular with wide brim hats are the ones made of straw. These are usually worn during warmer days and can look great with a pair of white pants, flat sandals and a very stylish off-shoulder tunic. It can even look good if you opt for a long-sleeve denim shirt.
Lastly, jeans and maxi skirts (bottoms-wise) and tees with plain basic colours or abstract prints (tops-wise) also go hand in hand with wide brim hats. For chilly days, you can add a leather jacket or a cardigan and still look great. As for shoes, as already mentioned – ankle boots, flat sandals are widely used, but you can also combine them with sneakers and platform or wedge sandals as well. Finally, try and have a little bit of fun with the colours. Sure, the basic black and tan hats are timeless, but jewel tone colours and pastels are also very trendy and can be used as a fashionable accent to your entire outfit.
