So what’s the deal with men’s hats? Who should wear them and what style? Hats have been a staple of men’s fashion since Adam decided to wear a nice crown made of bay leaves, so the rumor goes. Some hats are more utilitarian, like Beanies, keep our heads warm during the cold months, even though they have become a fashion statement from gyms to red carpet events. Others, like the Fedora, set men apart in a crowd. But no matter what kind of hat you decide to wear, it will make a fashion statement.
While the modern-day hat is not quite as elaborate as its ancestor.
Here’s a helpful news segment from CBN’s Early Show featuring the Editor of GQ magazine:
No matter what hat you wear, keep these few rules in mind:
- Make sure the hat fits your head. Go to a hat store, or one that sells hats, and make sure you’re wearing something that fits well, specially something that’s not too small for your head.
- Wear light-colored hats during the Spring and Summer and dark during Fall and Winter.
- If you feel “weird” or not comfortable wearing a Fedora, than don’t do it. If you’re uncomfortable with a hat or any other accessory, people will be uncomfortable with you as well.
Do you wear a hat? What’s your favorite style?
