Remember, a helmet should not cause any inconvenience, so the fit is the most important criterion when choosing it. A well-made hat is an extension of the head.
When choosing this accessory, I advise you to pay attention to several things. The base of the hat should be oval, that is, repeat the shape of the head, which is always elongated along the longitudinal axis. This ensures a uniform helmet fit on every part of the helmet and is the key to a comfortable fit. The size of the hat must correspond to the actual size of the head plus 1-1.5 centimeters of margin to compensate for its shape (it is never perfect).
Life hack: To know or check your size, you need to use a tailor’s tape measure, taking a measurement along the line just above the eyebrows and along the most protruding part of the back of the head.
The shape or silhouette of the headdress is the next important point in its choice. This accessory works with the oval of the face, and its task is to find and highlight all the best in it.
Life hack – do not forget about the general characteristics of the figure. If you have a small stature and petite build, the choice of a wide-brimmed hat should be carefully considered. Most likely, the narrow medium brims and elegant high tulle will be more suitable for you. And a headdress with an open face, such as a “sailor”, a hat or a beret, may turn out to be an ideal solution to the problem.
The last criterion that raises doubts when choosing a hat is its color. Combining a headdress with the main wardrobe palette is logical and, of course, true, but there is another important point. The accessory works mainly in the portrait zone: when interacting with a person, we see his face and what is a little below. We always keep this area in focus, respectively, and the headdress too, so it is very important to combine it with the color of the eyes. With the right selection, magic happens: the shade of the hat emphasizes the eyes, and they begin to burn; its natural color is intensified and becomes noticeably brighter. And burning eyes are a huge plus for any image, and the range of shades of clothing is no longer so important here.
Many years of working with the guests of the workshop give me every reason to say that there are no people in the world who do not wear hats. After all, you will not say that clothes or shoes do not suit you? The point is the silhouette, shape, color and other criteria that we figure out for ourselves through trial and error, and finally arrive at the desired result. With exactly the same hats, they go for absolutely everyone.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with the fit. There is no regulation on how to wear this or that headdress, which means that you simply cannot make a mistake.
Life hack – feel free to try new options! For example, wear an eight-piece cap with a bill back or to the side, and move the “sailor” to the front and a little to the side; it always looks fresh, and it is quite possible that it will become so small. detail on which the entire image is based.
Never forget that the main function of a headdress is to please you and make you a little happier. Therefore, if you feel that the hat cheers you up, forget all the recommendations – take it and wear it.
