Hats can be tricky so here are a few simple tips: Hats, like men’s ties, are there to draw attention to your face. Men’s ties move the eye upward to the face. A hat frames the female face, like a work of art. The size and shape of a woman’s face dictates the shape and volume of the hat she chooses. In fact, proportion is probably more important than any other factor. If you’re wearing a hat with a wide brim, that should be the focus of your ensemble. Consider pulling your hair up into a chignon in order to emphasize the architecture of your face. Newsboy caps and berets are best worn with the hair down.
