Picking a Great Hat

Hats go in and out of style; some of them you may like and others not so much, but you'll almost always be able to find hats in any fashion era. Some of those hats were great and so much fun to wear, however let's face it: Some of those hats should stay in the costume bin and some shouldn't been worn at all—ever! Hats will almost always be in some kind of fashion so now the question is, how do you pick a great hat?

The thing to remember when picking out a hat is, first, that most people don't need a hat. While some people may need them for medical reasons (primarily to keep the sun off of sensitive skin), most others don't. In fact, sometimes people's heads don't work well with hats—and that's okay. You can still be in style and up with the trends without a hat.

A lot of what goes into picking a hat is choosing one that complements your personal style. You don't want to wear a hat that doesn't work well with your natural flair. Affectation is something you always want to avoid. If you're a beret-wearing kind of person, go for it—find a cute one, and you'll be able to pull it off. The thing about style is that those who should wear it can pull it off.

My favorite style of hat is the bucket hat, but it doesn't look good on everyone. With the bucket hat, you probably shouldn't wear it if you have shorter hair (because it might end up looking like you don't have hair!). The baseball cap is another one of those hats that also goes along with style and also functionality. If you're an athletic person, wearing those baseball caps could definitely help you out when you're outside cheering on that game or mowing the lawn or taking your morning run.

There are few styles of hats that should just never be worn (the baseball cap with the fake ponytail coming out the back being one such instance) and most of what it comes down to is personal style and taste. Usually what you like you can pull off with flair and ease. Picking a great hat is no problem at all and you can succeed while staying true to your own style!
