How to Buy Womens Sun Hats

Make sure you select a hat that flatters your face shape

If you want to look your best with a hat, you need to select hat styles that complement your face shape. The shape, style and size of a hat can make or break your look. It can shorten or lengthen, and even emphasize the shape of your face.

For example, if you have an oblong face, you need hat styles that shorten and visually add width to it. Or if you have a wide-roundish face shape, the best womens sun hats for you have a raised crown and an irregular brim which help make your face look slimmer.

Wear a hat that go hand in hand with the activity

Like for example, if you're going to be physically active (like on safari or hiking trip), choose a practical lightweight hat and not last head-fitted with a chin strap to keep it secure during the wildest ride.

Or if you're just going to wear one to look good go for the wider brimmed and fancier ones.

On a budget?

Then opt for versatile sun hats in solid neutrals such as black, beige (straw) and white, with minimal details. You can wear them with almost anything - which can last you for any years.

I personally like my sun hats to be basic so that I don't have a bunch of trendy hats that look good with only one type of outfit. A basic one can go from casual-cool to dressy-pretty outfits, which means I only need to pack one hat with me! If I've secured the basics, I build it from there with cute details that create a fashion statement.
