Finding the perfect womens dress hat can be quite a chore especially if you don’t have even the faintest idea of where to start or what you’re really looking for. Beyond style and matching considerations there are also issues of construction and product features that are important to take into account as well. However, with some basic instruction on these matters you can confidently shop for and pick out the perfect hat for you. Let’s go over the basics.
One of the most important things you should understand about buying a dress hat is that the material it’s made out of not only determines the quality of the hat but also how it will be perceived by some people. Something that is constructed from wool felt for example is simply in a different class from something that has been made out of fur felt. The same is true for trim or band components as well such as the difference between a satin trim or velour trim. It’s important to understand these small differences not only to understand quality differences between hats but also so you don’t end up overpaying for a hat or missing a really great deal that is staring you in the face.
Proper hat fitting is a really important part of this process as well. You don’t always need to know your size as a lot of dress hats are now including a “one size fits all” mechanism to make fitting a nonexistent problem. One of the most commonly used methods is simply a drawstring that is run through an interior liner fabric on the inside of the hat. This drawstring can be tightened or loosened and retied so that the inner liner will fit perfectly on your head and give the illusion of a perfect fit from the outside. While this is of course fabulous you can’t rely on that perfect hat for you including this feature when you’re looking for hats. You should know your size even if you have to make a rough estimate by doing it yourself following a guide online.
Don’t forget one of the first rules of fashion is that fit is a huge part of how you’ll look and how you look is a major factor in your confidence level which will dictate how others perceive you. Be sure you’re getting a hat that was constructed well with quality materials or at least that you’re not paying for one if you aren’t getting it. These two simple tips will get you a great hat that fits your needs and body perfectly. I hope you follow them and agree with my advice in the end.
