Janie here with some Derby Hat tips!
LET YOUR HAT BE AN EXTENSION OF YOUR PERSONALITY
It used to be that it was improper for a woman to leave the house without her hat. Times have changed! We are not accustomed to wearing over-the-top fashion hats! If you are more conservative, wearing a hat IN ITSELF is a big step. Choose a hat with a brim that suits your face and frame. Make sure that you will be comfortable….you won’t loose yourself in your hat or topple over form the weight :) If you are more daring, honey this is your moment to shine. There are no rules…just go for it.
HATS DO NOT MEAN IGNORE YOUR HAIR
Just as much attention should be paid to your gorgeous locks, if not more so. The hat will draw attention to your hair and face, so be sure to ciof! Try not to tuck every last strand or wisp into your hat, let your hair be a part of this experience. Choose your favorite lipstick to bring out your eyes.
BE CONFIDENT
At Lilly Pulitzer this is our favorite tip every day, hat or no…be confident. If you adore it, wear it with pride. Confidence speaks volumes…so get out there and have fun! Wear your hat, don’t let your hat wear you!
