How to Choose the Most Flattering Hat
Petite Frame Hats with a small brim, or no brim at all, usually compliment a petite frame by giving the illusion of height. Hats that are very large or have a wide brim can overpower a small person's appearance.
Tall Frame The taller the person the wider or larger the hat they can successfully wear. A hat with a brim that's too small can make a tall person look large and bulky.
The trick to finding a hat that compliments your face and head shape is balance. If your face is angular, go with a softer, rounder hat. If your face is full and round go with something more angular.
Square Face Hats with a full shape and a rounded crown will best flatter a square face.
Round Face Lengthen and balance a round face by wearing a hat with a structured, angled crown. Try one with an asymmetrical brim or wear a regular brim at a slight angle.
Oval Face People with an oval face can wear almost any hat style, just be sure it's proportionate to your frame and that the color suits your skin tone.
Heart Face Draw the eye upward by wearing a hat that's on the smaller side and sits up high on the head.
Other factors to consider...
Skin Tone Hats are worn close to your face so choose a color that flatters your skin tone.
Cheek bones A rule of thumb is that the crown of a hat should never be narrower than a person's cheek bones.
Comfort Perhaps the most important tip of all is to choose a hat that you feel comfortable and confident wearing, and that's appropriate for the occasion.
