In addition to knowing which style suits you, you should take into account some details that will help you to include this accessory to your looks successfully.

Accessory for the right moment and look

The first thing to keep in mind is that it will not be ideal to wear this type of outfit at all times, like glasses, scarves or coats, you have to reserve its appearance for the correct scenario.

In turn, not every outfit requires a hat, so you must be very realistic when examining your overall look, as this will tell you whether a hat is an element that will complement it.

Don't use it to hide your hair

A mistake that many men make is hiding their hair or a bad cut with hats, and although it works at times, to show them off you must show a certain part of your hair.

Remember that the best time to attract attention with them is in the first impression, after that you cannot think that you will never have to take them off, since this will give the impression that you are hiding something.

Choose the hat according to what you want to convey

The size of the hat expresses what you want to project, if you choose extravagant models it is interpreted as a way to attract attention, but on the contrary, discreet models manage to attract the eyes in a more natural way.

Keep the harmony with the other accessories

Your shoes must find a harmony with the color of the hat you use, remember that they are the two poles of your image, and if they do not connect it will give the impression that something is excess in your appearance.

The same applies if you include a tie, since you must find the perfect balance between the tones of each accessory.

When wanting to put these three elements together, you must be precise in the correct model of hat, this because the combination of these in an outfit broadens the projection of elegance.

Leaving aside the formalism and labels, the truth is that hats continue and will continue to be a trend for a long time, so, if you still do not risk adding them to your closet, I recommend that you take the moment to include these friends to your look.
