This summer, hats have never been more in style! Not only do they look chic and trendy, but they also shade your face from damaging UV rays! Though hats are always a smart choice, no two hats are the same. So, how to choose the best hat for your face shape.
Use the variety to your advantage! Floppy straw hats, fierce fedoras, bowler hats, and even flat brimmed shapes are all on the radar for summer 2012. Both straw and crochet materials are perfect choices – not only are they lightweight and breathable, but they also give off a chill summer vibe! Choosing the perfect hat for you can be difficult, so use your face shape as a guide!
Round – If your face shape is round, look for a hat that will lengthen your features. Balance the shorter visage with a hat brim that is wider than your face. Floppy straw hats will narrow your look and elongate your jawline!
Square – When choosing a hat for a square face, pick a piece that softens your face’s angles. Whether you go for a floppy beret or a fitted cloche, make sure that your hat has a rounded brim. Bowler-style curves and short brims are a great way to round out your look!
Heart – Heart faces also look best in rounder hats with shorter brims. Try to avoid wide, flat brims, as these tend to accentuate narrow chins. Though most hats look great on this face shape, the cloche and boater styles truly flatter.
Oval – Though oval faces can wear almost any summer hat, it’s important to widen and shorten the face when trying on specific styles. The best hats that accomplish this are beach hats with flared, wide brims and deep crowns, so giddy up, cowgirl – cowboy hats and fedoras are a perfect fit!
