The blustery winter winds can play havoc with most hairstyles, which makes it a perfect time of the year to don a hat atop your head.
The key to wearing a hat with real style is to pick one that compliments your face shape. Those with long faces should look for hats with wide brims or ones that cover more of the forehead, like a beret. Hats like Bowlers, fedoras, and beanies look best on people with a square-shaped face because the roundness helps balance the sharp jawline. People with a heart-shaped face fair best with hats that have a medium brim and ones that keep the proportion between the forehead and chin in balance, like cloches, pillboxes and fedoras. Round face shapes look best in hats with sharp lines and some height, or worn at an angle, like floppy hats, newsboys and Homburgs. ■
