If you still think that hats are only worn on bad hair days, then you couldn’t be more wrong! There’s a variety of hats and for different purposes.
There are wedding hats, straw hats, News boy hats, slouchy berets, French berets, trilby hats, fedora hats, cowboy hats, eskimo hats, helmets…point is there are so many different types of hats.
Hats are worn for various reasons, all the reasons being left up to the hat wearer. Whether your hat helps you get your swag on, adds final touches to your outfit to complete your look, hides your balding head, or protects your hair from wind or dust it is wholly up to you.
One trick to wearing a hat is that you have to be a hat person. There are some peoplewho just cannot rock the hat look. Hence you have got to have what I call a “hattitude”. Also remember that, there are hats that will look good on some people and horrible on others.
