Afternoon my lovelies … Just heard yesterday as I drove along that ladies day at Leopardstown is on tomorrow- Monday and “hats” immediately came to mind !
A far cry from my green fleece hat that I constantly pull down over my ears ! The more I think about it I think Headpieces have evolved into a fashion accessory that is not to be overlooked, Hats have moved on from being a practical item to become a fashion statement in everyday life. The Fedora nearly knocked us all out during last Autumn/Winter. 👒
The wonderful thing about our modern fashion is that anything goes. There are many different styles to choose from. Hats are no longer one style. Just as you choose a hairstyle or sunglasses to flatter your look, you should choose a hat style that flatters your face and body shape. The key to choosing a hat is balance. Try to choose a hat which will contrast your face or body features.
Choose an angular hat with a sharp brim to lessen a very round face, choose a round shape for an angular face, wide hats for a long face. Oval faces can wear any style.
Consider your body type. If you are a petite body type, choose a smaller hat as a big hat can be overpowering. If you are tall, choose a hat with a wide brim and short crown, not tall angled hats. If you have a full figure, choose a wide hat with a full brim.
I didn’t realise until I was talking to herself last night that you can buy all sorts of accessories online and design and create your own wonderful hat ! I love the idea of this. What a truly unique idea ! So whether or not your a race day filly or just prefer to scour through the style on line or in the papers remember to trust yourself and if the cap fits wear it!
I know who I’ll be going to when I need a hat again … Now all I need is the excuse !
