1. Hats Improve Most Outfits
Hats have a powerful ability to instantly upgrade just about any outfit. You could be wearing a super straightforward outfit that wouldn't make anyone look twice, but add a hat to create a new layer of style that'll catch anyone's attention.
For example, if you're wearing jeans and a shirt, wearing a Dad Cap can turn your "just rolled out of bed" look to a much more put-together outfit.
For women, a sundress is bland without a wide-brim hat to go with it. The simple addition of a hat makes it a complete and adorable outfit.
2. Detract from Unwanted Features
In an ideal world, everyone would love every part of their body and face. But in the real world, that's far from the truth. Wearing a hat can help people hide certain features or detract attention from their faces.
For example, if you have a big forehead, you can easily slip a hat on to cover it up and feel more confident. On the same note, if you have acne on your forehead, you don't have to worry about wearing makeup to hide it, just wear a hat!
Even if a hat can't completely cover up your unwanted features, it will make those features less noticeable if that's what you desire.
3. Perfect for Hiding Bad Hair Days
Did you wake up and notice your hair pointing in a million different directions? Or are you having trouble getting rid of those dry specs of dandruff this winter?
You don't need to spend an hour trying to make your hair cooperate with you. Sometimes, you just have to take the loss and accept your hair isn't going to look good. Luckily, hats exist and are the perfect way to cover your messy hair on those stubborn hair days.
While you're wearing a hat, no one will suspect that underneath is an untamed, messy beast of hair and you'll look as clean-cut and attractive as ever.
4. Protects You From Sunlight
Hats aren't just for improving your outfit, they also provide functionality as well. You can wear a snapback hat to protect your face from harmful UV rays on sunny days and to keep the sunlight out of your eyes.
If you're taking a trip to the beach, wearing a hat is one of the essential things to do. Otherwise, you'll be staring into the sun all day and leave the beach looking like a lobster unless you apply sunscreen every 30 minutes.
Even with sunscreen on your face, you'll want to wear a hat to protect your scalp from getting burned. Even people with a ton of hair on their head can get burned where their hair parts, which is one of the most painful sunburns you can get.
5. Frames Your Face
You can use different hat styles to frame your face depending on the shape of your face.
You'll want to figure out the size and shape of your face before picking out a hat. While some hat styles can complement and perfectly shape your face, others can have the opposite effect.
Here are common face shapes and types of hats that you should choose:
- Oblong face: choose large brim hats, like sunhats. Avoid tall hats, like tophats.
- Round face: look for straight-brim hats like snapbacks and slant them downwards to increase angularity. Avoid round hats that make your face look more circular.
- Square face: look for large brim hats and slant them sideways to break up the symmetry of your face.
- Oval face: people with oval faces can wear just about any type of hat!
You'll be surprised by just how much wearing a hat can shape and frame your face if you choose the right one!
6. Wearing Hats Boosts Confidence
There's something about wearing hats that instantly makes a person feel a lot more confident and cooler.
Is it because hats can cover up your unwanted features? Or because you don't feel self-conscious about your hair? Maybe it's because you know you took a risk on your outfit and you feel really good about how well your look has come together.
Odds are, it's a combination of all of those things.
7. Hats Can Keep You Warmer (and Cooler)
Hats can help regulate your body temperature all year long and should be used in especially cold or hot weather.
In the winter months, wearing a hat like a beanie can help keep body heat from escaping through the top of your head. A beanie will also keep the top of your head and ears safe from the extremely cold temperatures.
In the summer months, you want to protect your head from harsh sun rays that can quickly heat up your body. Hats can also protect your face from the sun and provide some much-needed shade. Sunhats and snapbacks are the perfect accessories for sunny, hot summer days.
