This is how you sport a stylish hat

With the horse riding, racing and derby season on, There are a little tips you need to keep in mind when wearing a hat. You could opt for one that is simple or grandiose, custom-made or off the rack, but just make sure to sport one when you are at the races.

 

Wear them right
An inch or two above your ears is the perfect place for your hat to sit. Remember not to place them too far back on your head. Unlike men, who are expected to remove their hats indoors, women are permitted to wear their extravagant headpieces throughout the derby festivities. But if you are in a crowded space with a wide brim hat, remember your manners and do be mindful of your neighbours.

Opt for one that has the perfect fit
Your hat should fit you perfectly. If it needs to be adjusted all day long, then you are not doing it right. There are sizers or padded bands available that can be placed inside the rim of the hat to make it sit on your head without moving much. You could use hat pins too, to fix it in place.

Choose comfort over fashion
Hats are meant to make you feel fabulous and stylish, and also comfortable. You should choose one that makes you feel that way. With the perfect hat on, you are always a winner. So what if the horse you bet on lost the race?
