Here, we’re going to take a look at how to wear a hat and look fantastic while doing it. Read on to learn how to choose, wear, and accessorize the perfect hat to match your personal style!
Choose Your Style
There are a few styles of hats that you can choose from when selecting your headwear.
The most popular type of hat is by far the baseball cap. These are sporty and casual, which makes them perfect for all occasions sans professional and formal settings. You can wear them backward or forwards depending on the look you’re going for. These also come in a huge number of colors and patterns, so you have a wide variety of options.
Fedoras are pretty popular among American men lately, too. These hats are back in style because they’ve been popularized by celebs like Jude Law and David Beckham. They’re not restricted to the rich and famous, though- every man can boast a fedora when they want to spice up their wardrobe in a charmingly old-fashioned way.
Speaking of things that are charming and old-fashioned, bowler hats and flat caps are coming back into style this decade. These hats used to be favored by the gentry in England back in the early 20th century. We suppose it’s inarguable that styles repeat themselves!
How to Wear a Hat With an Awesome Outfit
Once you’ve decided on the hat that you want, you’ll need to pair it with an awesome outfit. This means keeping in mind the occasion that you’re wearing your hat to. As we discussed, baseball caps are exclusively casual. Flat hats and bowler hats are more formal, so you can pair them with a nice suit or polo.
You also will want to consider the colors you’re wearing. Avoiding clashing is essential. You want to turn heads for the right reasons, after all!
Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize
Any type of hat that you decide to wear can be made even more awesome with accessories. One of the best ways to spice up any hat is by ironing custom patches for hats onto their surface. You can also have enamel pins and buttons made to feature any image or pattern that you feel expresses your interests and values.
Adding a club symbol, a favorite animal, a pride flag, a favorite fictional character, or a fandom logo is a great way to express yourself. It’s also a great way to find and meet others with similar interests!
While there are many types of hats that you can use to spice up any outfit, there’s a lot that goes into picking the right one for you. Luckily, choosing the right one for you is an extremely fun process.
