Types of hats for the summer
The hats with summer options are the hardest. Many representatives of the stronger sex rejected the need for this accessory until recently. Now the situation is slowly but surely changing in favor of the need for hats.
- Cap (or peakless cap) is popular with most men. Made of thin fabric, the cap will perfectly protect your head from the sun, and the absence of a visor makes it a universal option for most images. Sometimes caps are supplemented with buttons or small metal emblems of the manufacturer. This option is convenient in that it is not necessary to wear it with a tracksuit, while it does not attract much attention, such as a hat. Most modern Russians are quite satisfied with this, this fact raises caps in middle-aged men to the rank of the most popular.
- Baseball cap is not an unconditional representative of the sports style, but she still has not advanced beyond the service uniform. The bulk of fans of this type of headgear is young people and athletes.
At the moment, a piece of clothing with a high crown and a long visor is decorated with bright and high-quality embroidery, color inserts, and accessories.
- Hat is the most underrated headgear among Russian men. It is difficult to meet both in the off-season and in the summer. It is used most often only on the beach and on vacation, in an urban environment you can see it not so often. The more common the use of a hat, the wider its field. For beach holidays, straw options are usually used. Fabric models, especially in combination with everyday clothes, are demonstrated only by the most daring representatives of our time.
- Fedora hat has a more presentable appearance. Wide fields, slightly bent forward and raised behind, oblige to wear it with a suit and shirt. It has a fairly dense structure, most often made of felt.
- Panama has a lighter shape and narrow margins, usually bent down. Panama is most often perceived as an independent fabric or knitted type of headgear, and not as a hat itself. Panama is applicable in everyday use as an addition to youth style or summer holidays. The beach can also be a place to use this headgear. The wider the panama’s fields, the less binding it is. Also, the fields perfectly protect against wind and sun.
- Trilby formed from fedora. Its fields are rather narrow, in comparison with Fedor, and the image is more formal, in comparison with Panama. Tula is slightly lower, has three hollows. Usually made of thick fabric.
- Cowboy hat originally positioned as the headdress of a shepherd - an American cowboy. Wide fields and a soft straw base perfectly protected the head from the scorching sun and wind in the open. Now a cowboy hat is acceptable in combination with a business suit. In Russia, this type of hat is used with a formal-casual suit.
- Bandana It is a headdress for children, modern youth and ardent representatives of musical movements; it is periodically used by motor sports enthusiasts. The bandana is considered a very convenient dress, as it sits quite tightly on the head. In this case, the bandana does not contribute to the appearance of an even tan and provokes skin inflammation in the forehead, therefore it is not recommended for continuous use.
- Beanie hat It may be quite appropriate in the summer, but it should be made of thin fabric and applied in casual style, for example.
- Male beret in Russia is strongly associated with old age and the profession of an artist.
Berets made of thin fabric are quite rare; such a headdress is not particularly popular in the summer.
- Light-colored cartouche how a hat is used even less than it takes. This species has almost outlived itself in the urban environment, for the most part it is used in the countryside.
- Turbans they are no longer the headdress of the inhabitants of the Arabian Peninsula or Africa, as well as a demonstration of religion. In Russia, this species is more popular among the female part of the population. The male contingent does not particularly favor this headdress, the turban (the less voluminous version of the turban) has the same attitude.
How to choose a hat?
Angular facial features are freely adjusted by headdresses of rounded shapes. If the shape of the face is elongated, it will be easier to adjust it with a hat pulled over the forehead, and a hat with an asymmetric arrangement of the fields will also perfectly cope with this task.
Holders of a round face is better to choose a hat with a higher top, such as a baseball cap or fedora. Also, chubby, you can add vertical lines due to the deflated corners of a bandana or beanie in a raised version.
The hotter the climate, the thinner the headgear should be. It should be understood that hats made of thin fabrics, such as a beanie hat, are more suitable for windy weather than for protection from the bright sun. Straw hats will also do an excellent job of this. Dense fabrics are ideal for wind and rainy weather. To avoid bright sun and skin burns, headgear with wide brim or models such as a turban and turban should be used.

How to choose a hat
A large role in choosing a headgear is played by the shape of a person's face. You need to emphasize the dignity of your face and, if possible, hide existing flaws, which will help you make the right hat. If you do not forget to take this factor into account, then you certainly will not lose with the choice of a hat.
With a round face, stylists recommend wearing semi-adjacent models with asymmetry to hide almost the same width of the forehead, cheekbones and jaw, as a result of which the facial features look too massive.
With an oval face, it is better to give preference to tight-fitting models, knitted hats, voluminous caps and high knitted hats with a deep fit. Such models will make the chin lighter, adjust the forehead too high.
For a triangular face, a hat is ideal, as well as fur hats that distract attention from a sharp chin, but at the same time quite wide cheekbones.
An elongated face, in which approximately the same width of the cheekbones, chin and jaw, ennobles a fur hat or hat.
When choosing a headdress, it is important to take into account its color, which should be combined with the color scheme of clothes, style, and appearance of a person. For example, blondes will look good in a headdress of peach, beige or white-blue colors. Brunettes can choose blue, black, fuchsia hats. Owners of light brown and ashy hair will use gray-blue, pistachio-colored garments. Red-haired men may prefer plum, spruce, chocolate shades of hats.
Also, stylists recommend that with simple-fitting outerwear give preference to intricate garments, a headdress that is uncomplicated in shape is better to choose with complex-designed outerwear.
But the main thing to keep in mind is the main thing that makes you comfortable and warm in your headdress.
