The fact that it has long become indecent to wear hats with fur pom-poms in the city seems to be well-known to everyone. However, in addition to this model, several other hats marked “long outdated,” stylist Yulia L. told Okemen.xyz about them.
Soft brim hats
Soft-brimmed hats look a bit like their summer counterparts. There is a problem here in the fabric, which does not hold its shape due to its low density.
Relevant: fedora (which came to us from the men’s wardrobe) and boater. It is important to combine these models correctly. If you want to be in trend, I recommend choosing not in the direction of feminine outerwear (smooth lines, assemblies, flounces) but, on the contrary, giving preference to more brutal, masculine things. For example, a coat of rough texture with broad shoulders, a jacket coat, a voluminous bomber jacket, a trench coat, and a leather jacket. Even if the shoes are “with character” – Cossacks or boots with massive soles.
If the hat is very different in color from the coat, work hard and find a model that will be at least a close shade to your outerwear.
Let’s say you’re wearing a camel coat and a burgundy fedora. In theory, this is a good combination. But due to the color difference, many unnecessary horizontal lines are obtained, and they do not look very advantageous visually.
Beret with decor
Today stylization plays a big role in how you know how to beat things. This equally applies to the beret, which remains with us for more than one season, but with a few reservations. We say “yes” to solid colors or houndstooth prints, plaid. A categorical “no” – berets with flowers, embroidery, rhinestones, and beads.
Separately, I will say about leather models, and you can wear them today, just choose a strict straight black coat or leather jacket as a top.
If you are the owner of beautiful long hair, remember that the tandem “curls + take” has become obsolete. Either just straight hair pulled back or a ponytail. Add rectangular glasses to the image, a 100% stylistic victory.
Large knit hats
These models appeared four years ago. In 2021, it became clear that it was time to get them out of sight. However, you can still see such hats on the streets. By the way, they do not go well for those who have a round face.
What to replace? It’s simple: a hat in a large pattern, such as noodles or a pigtail.
Few people know how to style a turban, which is a big problem. For example, Gucci stylists do it competently. But the chance of failure is high if you are not a pro.
Fortunately, wearing a turban today is unfashionable. If you need this element, put on a regular headband, it will not oblige you to anything. Now there are a lot of them from a variety of materials.
These caps are an element of sports style. It is better to replace them with panamas made of eco-fur, velour, or eco-leather. Right away, they do not go well with feminine outfits. It is better to choose something brutal or sporty. Another more versatile replacement option is beanie hats.
It is a comfortable model, great for our winter, but I still propose abandoning it. Replace with a balaclava. It is much more functional and does not create the “accordion” effect on the neck. Of course, this story is more for the young and stylish, those who know how to combine trendy elements so that it does not look ridiculous.
