The top 5 hat styles that will keep your wardrobe captivating

You may feel limited by the options that are available for accessories. You can wear snazzy shoes or grab a scarf that works with your outfit, but you might feel like you still need something else to really set off your style. These five hats for women will transform your day-to-day wardrobe.

 

Pork Pie

Although the pork pie hat became popular with women in the 1800s, Buster Keaton made this hat type trendy for men in the 1920s.

Today, it adds vintage appeal to a modern sensibility. The pork pie hat is often worn by hipsters who want to give off an intellectual vibe. You might wear it with a leather jacket and fancy shoes when hit up the jazz club.

If you wear it with contemporary clothing, you can’t go wrong. Give a nod to its heyday by wearing it with a vest or bow tie.

Trilby

The Trilby hat has a deeper crown than the pork pie. Whereas both styles have a rounded indentation at the top, the Trilby is also creased up the front.

If you’re already feeling stylish, pop the Trilby on to turn heads. This hat is often worn tilted toward the back of the crown. Because it has a narrow brim, it’s a little less practical than the fedora. You might not keep the sun out of your eyes, but you’ll look spectacular.

 

Flat Cap

If you’re just getting into the hat craze, you might be more comfortable in a flat cap than in some of the other hat styles. It has a more subtle silhouette than a hat with a brim that goes all the way around it. It can also be tucked in your bag when you’re not wearing it.

Try swapping out your knitted winter hat for a flat cap this year. Wool and felt versions will keep your head just as warm. You won’t flatten your hairstyle, and you’ll look incredibly sharp.

Fedora

Fedoras have become popular accessories for women in the past few years.

If you’re an adventurer and a risk-taker, the fedora is for you. It’s a little bolder than the other hat styles that we’ve mentioned, and it makes you look a little mysterious.

The fedora is classic and timeless. It can be worn with just about anything. Dress up your jeans and t-shirts with felt fedora.

 

Bowler

Before the fedora made a name for itself in fashion history, the bowler was the go-to men’s hat style. It features a rounded crown and narrow, turned-up brim. While it might not protect your head as well as a wide-brim hat, it’s streamlined and easy to wear.

Nowadays, the bowler is often associated with eccentric elegance. It’s the perfect accessory to wear with a striped suit, a leather jacket or a trench coat. Tilt it toward the back for a rebellious look.

The bowler brings to mind iconic characters, such as Liza Minelli in “Cabaret” or Alex in “A Clockwork Orange.” When you wear it, you’ll be just as memorable.

5 Ways to Add a Feminine Touch to an Oversized Look

Let’s admit it, ladies. You have at least one or two oversized outfits in your wardrobe that you don’t want to give up. For example, those cute wooly jumpers for the winter, the large t-shirt that makes you feel so comfortable or that denim shirt that you love to roll in the sleeves. Yes, you are guilty. And I am too! So how do you add a feminine touch to an oversized look?

 

5 Ways to Add a Feminine Touch to an Oversized Look image

 

Over the years, I have done a lot of experimenting with oversized clothing and searched for smart ways to give them that feminine touch and still preserve the comfort that we love so much. Here are some tips that you can use to get the best of both worlds.

 

Style with a belt

Belts are a go-to accessory and they always make outfits look really unique. Belts help to also add a little contrast to the colour of your outfit.

Wearing an oversized shirt often hides your feminine figure and makes you look boxy. Adding a waist belt takes the edge off an oversized shirt and clearly defines your waistline, giving you that hourglass figure.

 

Strike a balance

The best way to wear any outfit is to ensure that everything is to proportion. The mistake some women make is that they do not work towards achieving a balance in their dressing. Combining outfits is an art. The trick to dressing well is to make sure that the proportions are evened out at all times.

For example, if you are wearing an oversized shirt, the correct item to match it with is something that is skinnier. This is because it creates a perfect balance. When you keep that trick in mind, you always end up looking elegant and your outfits always look well thought of.

 

Wear statement pieces as accessories

When you wear an oversized outfit, a lot of attention is placed on it. Sometimes an oversized piece can be too loud. What was meant to look fashionable starts to look like a fashion mistake. The best way to deal with a situation like that is to tone it down or divert their attention to something else.

That’s where statement accessories come in. They are very feminine and the right pieces can help tone down the oversized look and collect all the focus on your feminine jewelry. You don’t need to put on too many accessories. Statement necklaces or bracelets would do just the trick.

 

Keep your jackets unbuttoned

This tip works only with jackets or oversized cover-ups. A large jacket, blazer or cover-up may look and feel very comfortable, but with the buttons all done you start to look bulky. That’s not good news when it comes to looking feminine. To break the bulky look, keep your jackets, blazers or cover-ups unbuttoned.

This is just one side of the coin When you keep your jacket unbuttoned, you need to make sure that what you have inside is not large as well. That defeats the whole aim of preventing the bulkiness.

 

Put on feminine shoes

If you’re wearing loose trousers then adding a touch of femininity to them lies in choosing the right shoes that reflect femininity. Shoes like high heels to elongate the legs hidden in the loose trousers, or cute yet comfortable sandals that will add a bit of that girly touch would be among the right choices.
