STYLE INSPIRATION: SPRUCE UP YOUR LOOK WITH A FEDORA HAT

Fedora hats; we have seen plenty of fedoras on the runway this season, both locally and internationally.   Nigerian designers like Ade Bakare, Toju Foyeh and Kinabuti are some of the few that have included fedoras in their collection. Fedora hats are extremely versatile; they go well with different styles from classy to sporty, from casual to formal. When choosing a fedora, you need to follow some principles which are pretty much common sense.



If you are more on a petite side, do not go for a hat with really large brim, so that it does not swallow or shrink you. Tall women on the other hand may afford to wear hats with wider brims. You also need to make sure that a hat flatters your face by making it seem oval.  For example, a fedora with a raised crown will really compliment a round face by elongating it. Small hat, on the contrary, would make a round face look even bigger. Fedoras are totally cool and come mostly in straw, leather and felt.

Wear with a pair of jeans, a tee, a simple casual dress or a jacket. By adding fedora to a casual look, you will make your outfit really stand out.  Fedora will also go really well with jackets of different style, from military to oversized ones as well as with various leather and even jeans jackets.  If you love how fedora looks on others, but still hesitate to wear one yourself, you may want to give it a try.
Make sure you choose one that suits your face shape and note that positioning make all the difference: A fedora shouldn't be perched high on your crown or squashed down on your brow. It should frame your eyes but not hide your face.
