It all comes down to…The Hat!

I am so envious of women who can just plop a hat on their head and look absolutely stunning. I am one of many women who, no matter how hard I try, I just can’t pull it off. I believe that there is an art to wearing a hat, one that I haven’t discovered.

However, there are lot’s of great reasons to wear a hat. A hat is a great accessory that will pull an outfit together, a simple sheath dress with a cute wide brim and you’re ready for all the Kentucky Derby parties.

There are certain rules that usually apply when selecting a hat:
Face shape and proportions for example, small face, small hat, wide face, wide brim

Skin color: The color of your hat should either complement or flatter your skin tone. If your skin is pale with rosy hues, then a pink or red or rust-colored hat would look nice on you. If your skin is dark or with yellow tones, you can wear just about any color hat but do try not to stick to just black.

Another very important reason is that a hat provides ample protection from the harmful rays of the sun. Skin cancer pevention and education has become more prevalent as we are becoming more aware of the dangers of exposing the skin to the sun. Not to mention the age spots, sun spots and freckles that appear on one’s complexion as a result of ‘laying out’.

Despite all the ‘rules’ about wearing a hat, I say, if you feel confident in a hat, if you love it and it makes you feel good, then forget all the ‘rules’.
