After reading this article, you will not be afraid to wear a hat anymore.
Heart, oblong, oval, round or square ? Which hat would suit you best ?
To begin, what’s your face shape ?
Heart : Those with wide cheekbones with small chips and a wide forehead like Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson, Taylor Swift.
→ Choose : most hats should work for a heart-shaped face but don’t go for anything too small as you want to balance out your cheekbones.
Oblong : those whose face is longer than it is round like Liv Tayler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker.
→ Choose : a low crown and wide brim – think berets, a cloche or a beanie. Bobble hats are a nono as they elongate your face.
Oval : those who have a wide forehead, broad jaw and a square chin like Keira Knightley, Demi Moore, Kate Moss, Angelina Jolie.
→ Choose : People with this striking face shape suit hats with low floppy brims to soften a strong jawline.
Round : Those who have a short face, with a wide forehead and round chin, like Kelly Osbourne, Emma Stone, Miranda Kerr.
→ Choose : Round faces need a high crown and a decent brim. Wear it square on the head so as not to counteract the lengthening effect.
Square : Those who have good cheekbones and a squarish jaw like Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian.
→ Choose : Square faces suit any hat, so go by your general proportions, a large brim can swamp the more petite.
