Frequently Ask Questions

Our answers to you most frequently ask questions. If your question is not here please write us.


1.1) What style of hat should I wear to suit my face?

One of the most frequently asked questions about hats is “what style of hat should I wear to suit my face?” The golden rule is to wear a hat that you feel comfortable and confident in, a style which suits the occasion.
If you have a small face it is best not to wear a hat with a very large crown and brim, just as if you have a large face, do not wear a crown and brim which hugs your face, these will emphasize your features. People who wear glasses often choose hats with swept up brims, as this takes the attention away from the glasses and does not come into contact with them as much as a downturned brim would.
Some people say that if you are tall you should not wear small hats, and if you are short you should not wear large hats. This is true to an extent, but as mentioned before, confidence plays a large part in hat wearing and if you feel that you look good wearing a certain hat then you probably do!

1.2) Witch colour of hat should I wear?

Because a hat is worn so closely to your face it is important that the colour of the hat flatters your skin tone. If you have pale skin, a warm colour such as pink or rust is a good choice. Darker skin is easier to choose for, although if it is very dark, black is best avoided. The colour of the outfit with which the hat is to be worn must also be considered. If the hat matches the colour of the outfit exactly it is important to introduce at least one other colour into the outfit, and if the hat is to be a contrasting colour, it must be a colour that complements the outfit.
