Wearing a hat can be both a fashionable trend and a way to keep warm.
Not every hat is for everyone and not every hat is for every kind of day.
Curvy Gals Guide to finding a Hat
When choosing the best hat keep these factors in mind:
- The season that you will be wearing it in.
- The material the hat is made out of.
- The purpose of wearing the hat.
- Your head and your look.
The season that you will be wearing it in
Obviously, you would not want to wear a warm weather hat on a 90 degree day and you probably would not want to wear a sun visor to protect you from the cold wind. The season that you wear the hat in is both a practical and fashionable factor in choosing your hat.
The material the hat is made out of
Hats come in all kinds of materials. A wool hat is a good choice on a cold day while a cotton cap would make a good choice on a warm and sunny day.
The purpose of wearing the hat.
Are you wearing the hat to protect you from the sun? Choose a visor if you have a pony tail. Choose a wide brim for maximum protection from the sun.
Are you wearing a hat to protect you from the elements? You may want to look more at practicality on the worst of weather days.
Are you in it for the fashion statement? Then you can be more concerned about the look of the hat rather than the practicality of it.
Your head and your look.
As we mentioned, not every hat is for every head.
Curvy gals can benefit from a hat that comes to a point, to create an angle, that is pointed off-center.
Petite heads should stick to the smaller hat while larger heads can sport a brim. Think about the whole proportion of your look.
