When it comes to hats, not every piece is universal. Different hats are more flattering for certain face shapes than others. Ultimately, it’s all about proportion and finding the sweet spot where the piece brings harmony to your profile. For example, if you have a small face, don’t overpower it with a wide brim. Below, we share tips on nailing that perfect pick.
#1: Heart-shaped face
Heart-shaped faces have wider foreheads that taper as they approach a pointed chin. Medium-brim styles such as fedoras, cloches and baseball caps are best if you wish to balance out the proportion.
This straw fedora — from famed Chanel-owned milliner Maison Michel — lends itself perfectly to summer shenanigans. That grosgrain ribbon adds a touch of preppy elegance.

Meant to be worn slightly tipped forward for a jaunty effect, it’s sequin treatment is a great addition to party outfits.
#3: Square-shaped face
A square face shape has a wide forehead and broad cheekbones, with the accompaniment of a strong, defined jawline. Unlike round faces, squares faces are angular and would suit softer, more rounded silhouettes. Beanies, bowlers, cloches and berets are the choices to make.
