A hat by any other name is a hat. Hats are accessories with tremendous responsibilities. Think of a hat at the beach, it must protect your face from harmful rays that will damage your skin if unprotected. A beach hat is a graceful accessory that bends, flaps, flirts and protects. A wide brim hat that was so popular this Summer, made women at the beach look elegant, young, feminine and well protected while at the same time accenting the colors in her bathing suit, or looking astonishing with the same color brim sun glasses.
A morning or mid afternoon event has ritzy women wearing hats in different styles, colors and textures. At Kentucky, Horse Races give Southern women an opportunity to look beautiful and show off their latest hats. Linen dresses, light weight fabric dresses and most Summer styles and special occasion dresses lend themselves to an easy hat match in the same color, or try an outrageous combination of your own liking, always being careful to keep a balance look. In Europe, wedding hats seem to be a bit heavy in the feather adornment, in America, feathers are used very toned down and with great creativity and utmost taste. In formal occasions, the hat is the crown of a chic woman that carries herself with grace and excellent taste.
When selecting a hat, you need to take into consideration, first and foremost what the occasion is, the attire you will be wearing, followed by the color of your hair and the color of your skin, the shape of your face and the length of your neck. A small face needs the appropriate dimension brim and hat height, as a fuller face would look better in a wider brim hat, and so on.
All these precautions considered, a ritzy woman’s wardrobe should have a minimum of two hats – there is no maximum. Hats should always be worn showing some hair, and never wear a hat too much to the front. A person with a longer neck almost always needs to be careful wearing a hat that might not be in perfect harmony with her look, wearing a very small hat is not recommended.
