Yes, dear ladies, we’ve already written in the last post how to wear hats according to good manners.
Do you know how? Did you ever have a chance to apply it? Good manners aren’t only associated with our behavior.
There are certain rules about which kind of hat to wear in certain situations and places.
Hat as a fashion icon, has managed to resist trends and stay a must wear. It has been also used as a way to hide a messy hairdo, and that’s why a rule remained to never take off your hat. If you know that you’re going to be hot or that you’re not going to wear it all the time, don’t put it on at all, cause it is inconvenient to wear it in your hands.
Let’s see how to choose an adequate hat depending on place and time.
During the day you can wear wide-brimmed hats, and in the evenings wear those that are narrow-brimmed or with no brim at all.
For restaurants you can pick Cloche Hats, Steampunk Hats, Women’s Fedoras, Fancy Berets, Pillbox Hats (worn by Jackie Kennedy), since they are narrow-brim or no brim at all.
In theater you can wear any hat you like. If you’re sitting in parterre you should take your hat off and then during intermission put it back on.
Dear ladies, when you go for a walk during a sunny day, choose hats made of straw or panama, cause these materials have light texture, so your head can “breath”. If it’s cold outside, you should wear hats and caps made of wool or other warm materials.
In office or other work place, put your hat aside, along with your hand bag.
During formal events, or different celebrations such as weddings or anniversaries, when it comes to hats, there are no rules, you can wear any hat you like, as long as it suits you and complements your toilette.
For a night out, you can combine one of these Fascinators, Cocktail hats, Veils, Fancy combs or Beautiful scarves tied or turbans with your elegant dress.
After these little tips, you can go out and get you a hat of your own. How to choose a proper hat according to your height and face shape read in this post “How to Choose a Hat“.
