The Art of Wearing Hats answers all these questions and more. Broken down into chapters covering everyday, outdoor and special occasion hats, you’ll soon discover the full range to choose from, alongside who in the Googlable world you can turn to for styling tips, and fun facts about where each originated from.

The Review

The Art of Wearing Hats: What to Choose. Where to Find. How to Style. by Helena Sheffield is a simple ode to hats. It, rather charmingly, delves into the history of each hat, each style and each period of popularity.

It is quite endearing to find a sweet book on such a niche topic that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

From the fedora to the fez, there is little that this author does not know about hats.

The only downside to this book is that towards the end you do feel like the author is grasping at straws to include more pages – in particular the section on ‘searchable terms’ – which seemed unnecessary.

Other than that The Art of Wearing Hats: What to Choose. Where to Find. How to Style. by Helena Sheffield is a short, sweet and pleasant read.

The Art of Wearing Hats: What to Choose. Where to Find. How to Style. by Helena Sheffield is available now.
