How to get the right hat for your face shape & body type part 3

Not every hat is suited to every face shape and body type, because we all have different face shapes.

Hat for tall and thin men:

Ideally, you do not want to accentuate your height even more which means do not go for a high crown. Instead, go for medium to low crowns. You want a contrasting hat band because it visually separates the top part of the hat from the bottom part and so overall, it makes you look shorter than you are. Of course, you do not look short but it looks more harmonious on your hat. The brim should be about 2 inches or 5 cm wide and you definitely want to step it down. Also, rather than wearing your hat straight, it can pay to simply tilt it to one side for a more elegant look that is more proportional. You should avoid tall crowns and matching headbands. Instead, go with something contrasting. Do not wear a short-brimmed hat that is curled up because it makes you look taller. Instead, go for a wider snap brim hat that is more appropriate and that little tilt just helps to tie it all together.

Hat for different facial features: Protruding ears

It is very important that you have a wider brim that is snapped down and not snapped up. The brim is important because it does not highlight the size of your ears or the shape, but it rather helps to cover them up. Opt for a wider crown that is not too pointy, although a little point is alright. Also, go with a wide hatband that is ideally somewhat contrasting because of your ears, it really pays to not just snap down the hat in the front but also in the back. If you have protruding ears, you definitely want to avoid small hats with shorter brims and anything that is pointed up.
