Hats for warmth, hats for sun protection, hats to cover up your hair and hats for style: Women’s hats are available in several different styles. When you’re choosing hats for yourself, keep these guidelines in mind:

  • If you have a round or square face, choose hats with a large brim, either straight or floppy.
  • If you have a long, narrow face, choose hats with low or flat crowns and wide brims to de-emphasize the length of your face.
  • If you have a heart-shaped face, try an asymmetrical hat.
  • If you have an oval face, you are lucky enough to choose any hats you please.
  • If you are tall, you can get away with a large hat.
  • If you are short, choose a small-scale hat, so it won’t overwhelm your figure.
