The fedora hat is unquestionably one of the most classy and timeless accessories you can wear. It can be very effective in making you look hip and fashion-forward. The term fedora was in use as early as 1891. Its popularity soared, and eventually it eclipsed the similar-looking homburg.
The word fedora comes from the title of an 1882 play by dramatist Victorien Sardou, Fedora, which was written for Sarah Bernhardt. Fedoras became widely associated with gangsters and Prohibition, a connection coinciding with the height of the hat's popularity between the 1920s and the early 1950s. By the early 21st century, the fedora had become a symbol of hipsters.
The hat should not be too big on your head, and it should not droop down over your forehead. The fedora should rest comfortably slightly above the centre of your forehead, and above your ears.
Here are 5 tips for wearing a fedora hat:
Make sure the hat fits
Big hats look better on big heads, whereas small hats look better on small heads. Make sure the hat fits well and feels comfortable before you purchase it. If your hat is too tight or constantly falls off your head, you’re not going to want to wear it often.
Choose a fedora that matches your style
Most fedoras are made of felt, but some are made of wool, fur or straw. Some fedoras have wide bands with decoration and others do not. Depending on your style and what you’re looking for in a hat, you’ll need to make your decisions.
Wear your fedora on dressy occasions
A wool fedora looks great with a suit and tie. Wearing a fedora is stylish way to look original and classy at a fancy event. Wearing a fedora with your suit is appropriate for weddings, dances and other fancy parties.
Dress your fedora down
To do this, pair your fedora with a tighter-fitting sweater, slacks and nice shoes (not sneakers). This is the perfect outfit to wear out to dinner or to a school dance.
Wear your fedora with jeans
Since the fedora is a dressy hat, you’ll need to dress up your outfit a little bit if you're going with jeans. Do this by pairing your jeans with a blazer.
Fedoras come in many variations. They can be made of wool, felt, or straw. Depending how you dress, what the occasion is, and generally the climate, all determine what style will fit you best.
