Hats Make Fashion Statements

 Isn’t this hat adorable?

Are you currently on the lookout for a new addition to your wardrobe that is sure to make a statement?  Nothing makes a fashion statement like a hat. Men and women have been using hats and caps as fashion accessories for centuries. A stylish hat that complements your coloring and features can pull together any style of clothing and have a dramatic effect.

The assortment of caps and hats available mean that you can find your own personal style that will not just make you stand out from the crowd, but can become synonymous with you. A jaunty beret or stylish cowboy hat can set off an otherwise dull ensemble. It’s worth a visit to a specialty hat shop to find a style that suits not just your physical appearance, but your personality. Definitely try on every style of hat or cap you can find. Observe if the color or colors complement your skin tone, and be sure to adjust the tilt of the brim to see how the hat can enhance or disguise facial features. A beret can be pulled low over one eye for a sexy, mysterious look, or it can be worn pushed back on the forehead a bit to convey a carefree and fun look.  What type of hat currently works best for you?

Even a baseball cap can make a statement; try wearing a leather baseball cap when you wear leather boots or other leather accessories to achieve a spectacular look. Two of the most versatile hats you can have in your wardrobe are the perennial straw hat and a felt hat. A simple woven hat can be worn casually with jeans and a tee shirt, of course, but it can be transformed easily and quickly to achieve a whole other style. Add a colorful band around the base of a straw or felt hat to dress it up a bit, and the look changes to casual sophisticated immediately. Attach a brooch, a flower, or other favorite accessory to personalize any woven hat.  This type of hat is perfect for the Houston Rodeo festivities. You’ve never seen so many unique hats, then you will during the open days and nights at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.  My boys love their western hats, but especially during rodeo days.

Whether it’s a beanie, a fedora, a Stetson, or a simple baseball cap, what you wear on your head will define your style and personality. Don’t forget that even the most stylish hats can also be functional. Lightly woven hats are perfect for protecting the skin against harsh sun in the summer time; and any cap or hat with a brim shades the eyes and prevents squinting. Winter weather almost demands a hat because most of your body heat escapes from your head. Furry, lined hats are great for protecting you against the cold during long winter walks, and they can give you a wow factor.
