HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST HAT FOR YOUR SUMMER EVENT

If you think of heading to the city for a nice walk in the park, and you are dressed in casual attire, paired with a slouch or wide-brimmed hat, that means you opted for the wrong style. Usually, slouched hats are for romantic and mysterious looks.

Your casual outfit is best paired with a Fedora or Trilby hat. Slouch hats work the magic when you are scheduled to go on a boat trip or a romantic date. This can be beautifully matched with a flowing dress.

When choosing a hat for a walk through the park, after you have settled for a sport-chic style, opt for a Panama of natural texture ad fabric. If it is a beach holiday in your mind, prepare outfits and summer accessories to guard against sunburn.

In picking the perfect headdress, your height must be in perspective. For a small build, you should rock a narrow or medium brim hat. In contrast, an average height lady or a tall person must go for a medium or wide brim hat, with a height of the hat's crown.

Women often make common fashion mistakes like wearing a wide brim hat that extends past the shoulders, which may cut across as tacky fashion. For the best possible look at all times, it is not harmful to take some pointers from celebrities who share your body type.

According to Tatiana Tucha, with the advent of social media and picture sharing apps like Instagram, now more than ever, the public's attention is firmly focused on the fashion choices of celebrities as they serve as outlets for designers to introduce new fashion trends to people.

Hats are not an everyday accessory, making them even more tricky to pull off on any outfit. However, some of the most stylish female celebrities that have consistently captured our attention with their hats collections include Queen Elizabeth II, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Victoria Beckham.

COMMON MISTAKES WHEN CHOOSING THE PERFECT SUNGLASSES 

Another summer accessory that accentuates a woman's beauty and is a must-have for both men and women in the summertime is a pair of sunglasses.

Before you purchase any shape of sunshades, you must ensure to check that: the sunglasses must sit well on the bridge of the nose; it should also follow the shape of brow lines; even if it covers the eyebrows, sunglasses should also follow the line of the cheekbones, and even if the sunshades have any contact with the cheeks, you should opt for one that does not touch the cheeks. It often presents a better appearance.

Many young models and a few fashion icons online make the common mistake of hanging their sunglasses on their nose's tip. Their excuse may be that they want to bring out a sexy look, which causes them to curl their nose often.

Tatiana Tucha suggests that this should be strictly avoided as it is one of the worst fashion mistakes made by women. It would be best if you did not go for a look that will stress your face muscles and make you look less adorable at the same time.

By merely getting glasses that sit perfectly on your face, you look more presentable, fashion-oriented, and allow the accessory to achieve its ultimate purpose, protecting your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet rays, especially in summer!

Having sunglasses rest above your head with its rims extended is another common mistake that should be avoided. This fashion choice does not look classy, and it disfigures the rims or may lead to broken temple tips, which makes the sunglasses useless.

Over the last century, celebrities such as Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe gave a new definition to the art of wearing sunglasses by using them to create new looks. 

More importantly, some common fashion mistakes women make when choosing the most suitable sunglasses to compliment their outfits can be easily avoided by taking notes from some of these celebrities. 

Conclusively, after you must have selected your favorite type of summer accessory or clothes, stand in front of a mirror for a full view and reassess your general appearance. If you successfully tick all the right boxes, then you are good to go and be sure to break a leg!
