Let's face it, some people can wear any hat and look good, but if you are like me (normal) and have a few extra chins, it is very difficult to find a hat that looks good in any way shape or form! Why wear a hat at all you might ask? Good question, but SOMETIMES a hat is de rigour! If you are going to a posh wedding for example. This is an occasion when you have to find a hat that makes you look halfway decent! It can be done! First of all you have to have a friend, spouse, or relative who you can trust absolutely to tell you the truth and drag them along to the hat shop with you. It's no good having a flattering friend who will tell you something you want to hear. Only the truth will do.
Step 1: The world is full of hats, most of them will look terrible on you!
Most of them are wrong for you, unless of course you look like Christie Brinkley - or the late Queen Mother, who seemed able to get away with any kind of fancy headgear. Even Queen Elizabeth looks good in hats!
Mind you, don't you just hate those women with the pointy chins and high cheek bones. They could wear a tea cosy and look good! Those who are "chinly challenged" like myself have a much harder task ahead.
Step 2: Caring helps
If you don't care what you look like, the task is easy. Just pick the first hat you see in the colour that matches your outfit and you are all set! Here are some pictures of me in some pretty terrible hats! As you can see I look pretty terrible in them. By the way I have a large collection of hats and look dreadful in all of them. I ask myself should a woman with more chins than one be allowed to wear a hat!
Step 3: Other people can look stupid too!
Would you wear a chicken hat, or a jester hat to that posh wedding? I think not, so we must think again.
