Protecting your head from the cold winter weather is indeed the most practical thing to do. But, practical doesn’t always mean fashionable.
Hats are one of the chicest accessories of the winter besides the scarf. However, if you don’t pair it right, you could end up wearing a quirky hat with a chic outfit – equaling a major no-no.
To pull it off, there are factors to consider (fabric, color, style and occasion).
From choosing the right color and style to knowing what to pair it with, here are a few ways to wear your winter hats, so you’re styling and profiling just right…
Various Hat Colors To Go For
As winter settles in, this is the perfect time to go shopping for hats. There are plenty to choose from, but because you’re going to wear these hats for at least the next 4 months, you want to make sure you pick versatile colors.
At minimum, you want a dark colored hat and a bright colored hat. Dark colors go with just about anything and bright colors are perfect when you want to add a pop any outfit.
More specifically, you may want to look for black, olive green or brown for dark colors. For bright colors, you want to look at tan, white, or bright red.
Bright colors go well with plaid and can be worn to work or to a holiday event. Dark hats go well with solid colors and can be worn for a night out on the town.
