Fashion Cinderella: A Week of Hats #OnlyTheBest
I love hats. They protect you from the sun, hide a multitude of dodgy eyebrows and give your outfits a lot of pop!
So last week, inspired by my favourite travel style look (jeans, top, jacket and hat), I decided to have a week of hats.
I was going to be in Mauritius all week long for the Multichoice Africa #OnlyTheBest Content Showcase and since I knew it would be sunny and I'd have to leave the room early most days, head gear was a really good idea.
Now you should know that there are different kinds of hats. From Fedora to Baseball (Face) Caps, Straw hats and Boater.
The hat you choose should depend on the look you are going for. For example, if the dress code (like ours said on Friday) is 'sporty', then face caps are your friend.
* Know which hat suits what look. On sporty day, i first wore my blue bowler-style hat but it made it dressy and clashed!
* Do not neglect your hair. Sometimes we slap the hat on and don't style our hair then you have to take the hat off for some reason and you look weird. Pack, pin, do something!
* Simplify. Hats can be dramatic so if you go heavy on your accessories and make up, it will have an adverse effect. Pair with simple accessories and lipstick and one dramatic item!
