Becoming a Hat Person: 101

By Raya Ramsey |

A newbie to the hat world writes:

I just bought a straw fedora for summer but have no idea how to wear it. I’m new to hats. Help! –Lindsey

Naturally, I directed the question to the city’s most well-know milliner, Cassie MacGregor of House of MacGregor. She responded with the following.

The biggest tip I can give is to wear your hat with confidence, it makes all the difference. You can’t go half way and once you get a few compliments you’ll forget you even have it on. I prefer my hats to be worn more forward than back and cocked at a slight angle. If it is a nice hat, you can wear it to a nice occasion, but if it is a cheapie (which there is nothing wrong with) save it for the pool or hanging out on the weekends!
