There’s a common myth that handsome men look good in anything, or should we say, good-looking men can carry even the weirdest costumes like they own it. We might’ve even believed this myth if it weren’t for hats shattering it with their sharp brims. Wearing a hat today is no joke (even though most men look like it when they wear one.)

But jokes apart, an accessory that was a necessity in the past has now become extinct because there’s always the fear of not cutting the bill. It’s a justified fear, but that does not mean we toss them aside without understanding their full potential if worn right.

So let us be your fashion consultant for the day and present 3 of the most popular hats and how to wear them right, shall we?

The Badass Fedora

Since the 20’s, the fedora hat has been associated with gangsters which has made it an accessory that uplifts your badass quotient. In the earlier days it was worn as a formal accessory but now it has been adapted to match our everyday clothing.

Take Johnny Depp for example, you’ll always spot him wearing one. Now one can’t be as cool as Johnny Depp, but one certainly can take inspiration from the guy.

How to wear it?

Men with narrower faces have a better chance to get the look right. Wear it straight, pair it with a suit and it’ll look formal, tilt it just a little to the side, pair it with a funky t-shirt and some denim pants and it will look casual.

The Hip Beanie

What comes to mind after hearing ‘beanie’ is a woolen pull-over that makes you look rugged and trendy.

It’s a type that every face shape can embrace (not as good as David Beckham’s though.)

What actually becomes a challenge is wearing it right. We humans are bound to get confused with so many options available. So lets simplify it.

How to wear it?

Cuff the beanie only once and let it rest half
way down your ears and you’ll be sorted for a casual Friday in office. Then there’s the fisherman style where you cuff the beanie twice and rest it on top of your head and let your hair show. That look will work for a casual and not-so-casual look alike. Then there’s also the David Beckham look for which you wear the beanie as far back as possible and let the extra slouch.

The Sporty Baseball Cap

You don’t necessarily need to be a baseball fan to wear a baseball cap, you do need to be careful with what you pair it though. It mostly is for casual use so lets not go too overboard.

We don’t know about anything else, but we can be sure that Justin Bieber never messes up his baseball cap game. So take him as inspiration (at least in this case.)

How to wear it?

If you’re not too confident, go with a plain cap and pair it with a tshirt, jeans and sneakers. Once you’re a little confident you can also opt for prints. It’s a risk to wear a baseball cap with a shirt and tie but it’s worth it for sure. Try it one Friday at work and see for yourself if the look works out for you, we know it’s worked out for many others.

Doesn’t sound all that difficult now, does it? Lets bring the hats back in the men’s style game and make optimum use of these extremely sexy accessories now, shall we?
