I am super excited that fall is in full swing and I can say goodbye to my warm weather clothes! Now it is time to pull out the sweaters, leggings, boots and hoodies. Being a full figured gal, winter is my favorite time of year when it comes to fashion. I get to breathe a sign of relief that I don’t have to wear shorts or sundresses for another 4-5 months! The one fashion accessory I am never sure about are hats. I just am not sure I look good in a hat. Could it be that I am not wearing the right hat for my face shape? To answer this burning question, I did some research to find the perfect hat for your face shape. Here is what I found:
- Square: Find a hat in a neutral color that has a higher top and a floppy brim like a cloches, or bowler style hat.
- Oblong: Find a hat that sits lower on the crown and has an upturned brim. A medium sized floppy, 1920’s cloche, crusher, or bucket style hat will work best for you.
- Heart: Find a hat that has a medium brim that has a more prominent crown to make your forehead look more narrow. A fedora is the perfect hat for this face shape.
- Round: Look for a hat that has an irregular brim, with one side up and one side down. Find a hat that also has a higher crown. A medium to long brim fedoras, porkpies and trilby styles will look great!
- Oval: You won the jackpot as just about any hat looks great on you! You can really pull off a trendy beret or beanie, like the cream beanie from Mitscoots.
My daughter Caitlin looks good in just about any style hat. Her hands down favorite is a slouchy beanie, like the uber soft Mitscoots beanie with it’s vintage look and stylish suede accent straps. The unisex beanie sells for just $26 and is only of 5 beanie styles/colors from Mitscoots. In addition to the beanies, Miscoots also carries socks, scarves, gloves and tee shirts.
What I love most about Mitscoots is their philanthropy efforts. While they were volunteering in Texas in 2008, the folks from Mitscoots discovered something. They found that after food and water, the homeless population asked for a clean pair of socks and other outer gear. This promoted Miscoots to give an item to someone in need each time a purchase was made from Mitscoots. They also give a hand up instead of a hand up by giving jobs to those homeless that are in transition. Now that is a company I can really get behind! Be sure to follow Mitscoots on Facebook and Twitter.
What face type do you have and what hat would you wear?
