Hats are cool. Correction: The right hats are cool, if worn the right way. If you’re worried they’re too tricky to style for a flattering end result, fear not; Savoir Flair has all the style inspiration and shoppable pieces you need to rock a hat this winter. Read on for tips on how to wear your hat according to your style.
This right here is your golden style ticket. Whenever you’re not sure what to wear, but want to look smart casual, a great hat paired with minimalist, good-quality pieces in black, gray, beige, or white will do the trick. Play with proportions – a wide-brim hat, fitted top, and flared pants will look flattering and elongate the figure. Just add a great pair of heels and you’re good to go!
So easy, so chic. If you look at the way Parisian women style their looks, you’ll notice they always balance elegant and sporty, classic and modern, all thrown together to suggest, “I don’t need to make an effort to look super stylish.” Take a cue from them by pairing your hat with white sneakers and a classic knit dress or cool ankle boots and a dress that Hedi Slimane would approve of. Parisian style works outside of the magical city too.

The cool girl sets her own rules. She favors comfortable, loose pieces, sometimes balancing them out with fitted accents. She either wears something out of the box, or styles a classic in that way. Think: a fedora with roomy, tailored menswear, a feminine hat with a short, comfy dress, or clothes tied and twisted for a walk off the beaten path. To master this look, try a bowler hat.

Bohemian spirits don’t need much guidance, but a few tips can help. To achieve this look, a good starting point is a mix of fabrics – lace and knit, velvet and cotton, linen and denim. In terms of proportions, when wearing a hat, opt for a maxi skirt with a crop top, chunky knitwear with an open back or off-shoulder detail, or a loose kaftan with a fitted tank underneath.
