Hats can really pull a look together and make it look complete. However, they can be intimidating to wear. Knowing which hat styles work best for you is a big part of wearing a hat well. Fit is also key in making sure your hat compliments you; an ill fitting hat can detract from your look.

Today, let’s talk about one hat style that anyone can wear. I’m talking about rancher hats. This style compliments any face shape and is available in various brim sizes. If you’re new to hats and aren’t sure how to wear a rancher hat, stick with a medium brim. A wider brim rancher hat may end up wearing you and a smaller brim can look more like a fedora and will make your look too hipster.

Rancher hats are typically made of wool which limits its wearability to only fall and winter. You can get more use out of your hat by opting for one made of a cotton/polyester blend, like this one. Wool hats are warmer but the cotton/polyester blend still keep in quite a good amount of heat but also breath better during the warmer seasons allowing you to get more use out of your hat.

Now, let’s talk about how to style a rancher hat. If you’re not sure how to style your hat, play it safe. For this look I went with an all black outfit and use my coat and accesories to add more dimension to my look. The color of my hat ties into the tone of my coat and purse, pulling the whole look together and drawing the eye upwards, thus giving me a taller, leaner look.

The neutral tone of this hat pairs well with the tone of my faux-shearling winter coat and because of it’s lightweight, woven material, it will pair equally as nicely with a maxi dress and sandals in the spring or summer. As for fit, the inner band should fit snug around your head but not tight. If you can’t tell whether your hat is just snug or tight, try the one finger trick. You should be able to fit one finger comfortably between your head and the band.

I also wore this hat as part of a more monochrome look, click here to take a look.

One of my new coats arrived today and I’m so excited! I’m dying to open it but I want to see it in daylight and it’s like 12am right now (also I’m falling asleep) so I’m going to wait until morning to open it. I ordered 3 coats from my top picks. I got coats numbers 4, 6 and 7. I think coat #4 was also part of the sale last year and if I recall correctly, this was a best seller. I love the rose gold hardware on it. I tried to order it last year during the sale but it was sold out. The coat that arrived today is the faux fur leopard print coat. I’m so excited to wear this piece for fall. I feel like leopard print goes with just about everything; it’s like a neutral. And it looks so cozy! I’ll do a story on it on my Instagram tomorrow and show you guys the fit. I have a feeling this coat might sell out soon. The velvet front vest with faux fur collar coat is supposed to arrive tomorrow so maybe I’ll wait until it arrives to try both on and tell you guys about sizing and fit. So excited to this vest, I already know I’m going to get a lot of use out of it during fall and winter. I’m kind of obsessed with every single coat in my top picks. That lavender coat (#8) looks dreamy and this is going to be a big color trend for fall. I love a good camo jacket and #3 is a pretty good basic, I have a very similar one that I wear all the time. Really, you can’t go wrong with any of these.
