Fedora hats are always thought of to be menswear or at least menswear inspired accessories for women. A lot of women do not go for fedora hats because they think that these are only for men or women who can pull off a masculine kind of look. However, the history of the fedora hat actually contradicts this. Back in the late 1800s the fedora hat was introduced in a play as an accessory for women but after that it soon became a fashion staple for men. Today, though, fedora hats are worn by both men and women. If you are looking for ways or tips on how to style fedora hats, here are a few for you:
Find the perfect fit – As with anything that you wear, finding the perfect fit is important when buying or wearing a fedora hat. Do not just buy fedora hats for women right off the bat. You have to make sure it fits you well, no matter how cute the design or the style is. The perfect fit for a fedora hat means that it is loose enough to comfortable accommodate your head down to about half of your forehead but not too loose that it falls or slides off sloppily to either sides of your head. It should not also be too tight that it leaves a mark on your forehead after wearing.
Use it to dress up a casual outfit – On days when you don’t feel like dressing up but still want to look super stylish and chic, a fedora hat is all you need. Whether you are wearing a simple shirt and jeans or something even more casual like a tank top and a pair of shorts, adding a fedora hat can instantly make you look well put-together.
Experiment with angles – we all know fedora hats for women, and men at that, definitely look better when you put them on a different angle but there is always going to be that one angle that will outstand your look. You may not get it right the first time but the key is to always experiment with angles. Wear it differently each time and see which style and angle you get complimented on the most.
Add a fedora hat to a dress – Dresses are cute, feminine and flirty. Sometimes, though, when we wear one dress too often enough it can look boring. Avoid being that same old Plain Jane wearing the dress everyone knows too well and spice up your look by adding a fedora hat to your dress outfit. Not only does the fedora shake up the whole ensemble, it also adds a fresh and somewhat more masculine feel to your look.
