The Style Guru: Get your head around hats!

Get your head around hats!


The rise of androgynous dressing has welcomed back the humble hat.  It’s having a gigantic comeback this season in every shape, size and colour.  Hats flooded the catwalks with flying hats at Prada and teddy- boy trilbies at Dolce & Gabbana, to name a few.

This style looks best when teamed with an effortless looking t-shirt and a pair of skinnies.  Think more off-duty model and less Princess Beatrice.  You’ve been warned!

Add a fedora to a twenties style masculine suit and you’ll be looking cabaret chic.

Baseball caps, which are appearing through the sports trend, are being worn with everything from pretty dresses to denim overalls.

If you have a heart shaped face, wear small brimmed hats and bucket shapes that are asymmetrical. Avoid berets and baseball caps.

Choose tall, shallow crowns if your face is round to give it length. Brims that are wider than your face help make your face look narrower.

If your face is square-shaped, a hat that sits high on your forehead will elongate your face.  Berets  worn  high on the hairline suit this shape, as do bowler hats with narrow brims.

Long faces need moderate width brims to balance their shape out.  Wear your hat slightly to the side and a little higher on the crown.  Avoid hats that are too high or wide.
