Women's Formal Hats

A hat is a great way to add a finishing touch to an outfit especially when the occasion is a formal one. Available in a wide range of colour and designs from a myriad of designers and brands there's bound to be something to suit your individual style and budget.

Matching With Your Outfit

If you want to create a chic and harmonious look then a hat that matches the colour of your outfit will pull everything together nicely. If you're not a fan of top-to-toe colour then you can opt for a hat in a neutral colour such as cream. This again creates a highly polished look without placing too much emphasis on any one particular colour. A neutral colour is also a lot easier to wear for most people and will complement a variety of skin tones.

On the other hand, a brightly coloured hat that picks up the details in your outfit can add a little pizazz to your overall look. For example, a pink hat will pick up some floral detail in your dress to add the ‘wow' factor.

What To Look Out For

There are all sorts of styles of hats and many different embellishments that will suit what you are looking for, the occasion and your own personality. For weddings, a nod to all things floral in the shape of flowers and bows gives a romantic touch that works perfectly on such a day.

For a glamorous party, a hat with more extravagant design may be favourable. Feathers, tulle or netting to partially cover the face are a good way to add a little drama to your look. For an avant-garde twist to headwear, you can also find hats which sit off to the side or front of the head. This emphasises some aspect of the wearer's features, such as elongating the neck or framing the face.
