Hats are intimidating for many people, we know that. Aside from hiding a bad hair day or shielding yourself from the sun when necessary, many of us avoid adding hats into our everyday or style-driven wardrobes. Perhaps we’re afraid they’re “too much” or perhaps we’re worried they won’t flatter our faces properly.
The main thing with hats is finding one that suits your style. In the winter months, hats like beanies become a necessity but don’t discount more fashion-forward looks like wide-brim hats, berets, and more.
HOW TO STYLE A BASEBALL CAP
The classic baseball cap. Baseball caps are great for hiding a mediocre hair day or throw it on to make any outfit a bit more casual.
HOW TO STYLE A BEANIE
When it truly gets sub-zero, beanies are frequently an essential piece of winter style. They don’t need to be irritated, sagging or ridiculous, however, there are a lot of a la mode and basic beanies that will supplement your expert closet and your end of the week clothing. We cherish the cashmere beanies from spots like Everlane and Uniqlo, and also the fun-loving weaves with hues and pom-poms and weaved subtleties like beading and shimmer.
HOW TO STYLE A BERET
The beret! This French-style hat can become costume very easily, so proceed with caution. Take a cue from the ladies above and make sure your beret is paired with a chic suit, a great coat or your most casual jeans. No striped tops, nothing red, nothing else about your outfit.
HOW TO STYLE A GREEK FISHERMAN’S CAP
If you’re ready for a hat that’s anything but typical — and actually very traditional — try a Greek fisherman’s cap. These hats are a cross between a newsboy and a beret and have a structured band that will sit firmly on your head. We love this style as an addition to your weekend uniform — wear it with jeans sweaters, and a menswear-inspired coat.
