I’ve never suited hats. I have a really small head and they generally just look ridiculous on me. I’d love to be one of those girls who wear gorgeous beach hats and look super glamorous. But I’m just not. Normally I can get away with a knitted beanie hat if they’re not too big and I fold them up, but that’s it when it comes to headwear. Until now. I’ve been admiring baker boy hats for a few winter seasons now but never even bothered to t4ey them on because, as I said, I don’t suit hats. Here are a few tips on how to wear a baker boy hat when you just don’t suit hats.
A Tonal Outfit
If you’re not used to wearing hats then a big tip from me is to match it to your outfit. If you’re wearing an all-black outfit and then wear a bright red hat on your head, then you’re probably going to feel a bit self-conscious. As I have blonde hair, I decided to go for a light beige/tan baker boy hat. It means it doesn’t contrast against my hair – a black hat would be a little too harsh. It also matches the tone of my favourite teddy coat, too. Pulling the tan and black colours of my outfit together with my leopard print boots gives a cohesive look.
How To Style Your Hair
How you style your hair can also make or break when it comes to how to wear a baker boy hat and look good. I would always wear my hair down with any kind of hat. If my hair is pulled back and I’ve got any type of hat on I feel like I look like a ten-year-old boy. Not exactly what I’m trying to achieve, surprisingly. Hats are great to hide greasy roots, but straightening the ends of your will give a more polish look. If I had longer hair I’d probably wear hats when my hair is curly, too. It’s a little too short for that so I stick to a sleek, straight finish.
My two top tips for how to wear a baker boy hat is to choose a subtle colour which looks good with your winter coat, and to wear your hair down with your hat. Do you wear hats? I’d love to be able to pull off more styles!
