My name is Marilyn Hellman, and I have a shop in Naples, Florida, at 375 Fifth Avenue South, and we are very successful with selling hats. And I think one of the reasons is first of all, we get one of the largest selections; I get them all over Europe. But basically is we take the time with our customers to make sure that this hat decision is a good one. This is a very standard type hat with a brim, it doesn't matter how big the hat is; normally what you do is you look for the label on these hats, you put your finger there, and you put your finger across from that one, and then you're going to sit this on top of your head in a, in a horizontal way, and then look in the mirror and you're going to give it the attitude that you think is right, and that's the best way to handle these, because sometimes some sides are better than others. Okay, this does not go under your chin, alright, I like to get a lot of these in the shop, because it allows you to wear the hat many other ways, with the headband you can only wear it is, with this type of an elastic, which goes underneath and behind the hair here. You would put it on like this and then put your hair over it, you can decide whether you want it on this side. One of the things you want to consider is the kind of color you're going to wear to go with your face . Women’s Hat Trends 2017, 2018: This year the big fad is a lot of 1920’s. You can put the detail in the front, for certain things and you can put the detail in the back to make it more casual, but on a lot of these you're going to have to make a hair decision, so if you have shorter hair or longer hair you're going to have to decide how what you want your hair on this one. Anyone who tells you that color doesn't matter is not your friend, because color really matters, especially if your looking to put a hat in your wardrobe, for using for other outfits and other things. Know whether you're a cool or warm toned skin colors, because your hat is right next to your face. Well as far as color with outfits – your imagination is your best guide. Don't be afraid to put color with prints, this could easily have a black hat also with it, and that's one of the reasons why I believe that the two biggest key colors in your wardrobe for hats, are black and red. We did a very fashion-forward hat here, it's a Philip Tracy. We can do a lot of things with this outfit and change it. You could put this kind of a hat with it, and then add maybe red jewelry to go with this, it completely changes the outfit, maybe in the summer months, you could wear white shoes, or black shoes in the fall. You could wear this with a patterned leather shoe, you dress that up w/a very nice shawl. Don't be afraid to use colors. A lot of times the colors you think are going to go with a particular dress, are not the ones you should be doing; contrast colors are really gorgeous. Hats and Face Shape: We’re going to talk about faces, and seeing as we have so many different shapes, but we basically have four.The first head shape I want to talk about is round, and one of the things you want to do is you really want to consider a brim when you're talking about that; so a brimmed hat is always recommended with a round head, and you have to keep in line with your shoulders, so this is for everyone, you shouldn't have a brim on a hat wider than your shoulders, now if you're wearing higher heels, and you're taller, you could do a little – you could cheat a little bit there, but basically you're going to have to stay in those rule of your shoulders. Another little tip too is if, if you get the decoration on the hat, and it matches your eyes it will bring out your eyes. This is lovely when you have a long face, you're again going to go with a brim on a long face to bring it out, I love the connection, but also make sure you do a lot with detail, and softness here, so that it's not so stark, so you want to fill with either flowers, or some kind of colored ribbon or something always helps when you have a long face to open it up. With a square face, if it's this wide, you're going to want the hat to be this high. We have a very high hat, to match up with the brim, and that does very well with square faces. See what we're doing here, we're changing the hat and tilting it, we might be able to use it for a long face also. So a lot of this is trying on the HATS. One thing I mention in my earring video, no one is a standard round, no one is a standard square, thee are all kinds of slight changes. People who have heart-shaped face can really wear any kind of hat there is. A fascinator you can wear them with any head shape.
