It can be really hard to find great summer hats if your head or hairstyle requires a larger hat. The standard “One Size Fits Most” hat only fits a head that measures up to 22 3/4 to 23 inches – this is a size 7 3/8 for men or a size 7 1/4 for women.
Good news: You don’t have to wear a hat that’s too small, rely on a plastic adjustable tab or spend a lot of money to add a hat to your warm weather wardrobe. There are online retailers that offer larger sizes in fun styles and a wide range of prices – Big Head Caps, hats.com and e4Hats.com.
Shopping Tips for Summer Hats
Finding the Right Size
Check out the sizing charts to be sure that you get a perfect fit.
Choosing a Flattering Style
Basically, a bigger body tends to look best in a bigger hat. Whether you are buying a hat as a gift for a woman, a man or for yourself, bigger bodies tend to look better in caps with longer visors and hats with wider brims such as a panama boater, a fedora, a boonie, or a breezer.
