Hats: Why Fit in When You Were Born to Stand Out!

Grab your hat and celebrate in style today! It’s National Hat Day!

And, thank you Dr. Seuss for that wonderful quote: Why fit in when you were born to stand out!

Have you ever noticed how a person wearing a hat just looks more…well, polished and cool? It really doesn’t matter what kind of hat! Hats just take things up a notch. Makes one stand out!

Compared to the practicality of shoes and handbags, it’s easy to consider hats an afterthought. Everyone needs footwear to leave the house in, and bags to carry your things around. That being said, hats are plenty practical when they are protecting your head from the elements. Plus, they are major styling pieces! While different types of hats have different types of “personalities”, the same holds true for when someone dons a hat! Does a beret make you feel French, or like a spy? A cowboy hat like a cowboy? A hat can really change the way a person feels or perceives themselves, as well as how they project themselves to the world! Even if it is only for a day or a few hours… It really is quite fun!

Did you know that there are nearly 300 types of hats! Crazy, right? Here’s a short list of some you may know, some you may not:

  • Beanie
  • Bowler
  • Fascinator
  • Beret
  • Panama
  • Cowboy
  • Fedora
  • Cloche
  • Fez
  • Top hat
  • Sailor
  • Chupalla

Who can forget the style and elegance of Audrey Hepburn in her Chapeu de Matin in Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Or the toughness of John Wayne in his cowboy hat? How about the quirkiness of Charlie Chaplin in his bowler? And, we know the ladies of the Royal Family always take their style and hats seriously! I could go on and on…

Here are some famous hat wearers that definitely “wear it well!”


It was so hard to not make a giant collage of famous people in hats! I really had to hold myself back! Who else would you have included? I’d love to know 🙂

So, wear your hats today people! And, tomorrow, and the next day, and the next. You know you look good 😉
