Hat Style Tips

  • Irrespective of the style, fascinators should be worn to the front or to the side of the head. Depending on your hairstyle they can also be worn towards the back if your hair is piled up.
  • When choosing a hat make sure you have bought your outfit first.
  • Always choose the style based on the shape of your face.
  • A round face should choose a hat with a high crown and wider brim or a fascinator tilted forwards and to the side with a tall feature.
  • Those with a heart shape face or oval face are very lucky because they can wear any shape, any size with any feature.
  • Women with a long face look better in small neat pieces or fascinators with features fanning out from the face or, alternatively, can carry off a wide brim hat.
  • If you have a small face never wear a very large hat. Fascinators works better.
  • If you have a large face avoid small head hugging hats or fascinators.
  • Opt for bold colours if wearing a wide brimmed hat that contrast with your outfit rather than matching 
  • If you have a pale complexion opt for warm flattering colours such as peach or shades of green.
