Days are getting sunnier by the minute; and instead of getting all sad because it's time to retire your sweater-weather outfits, just work with it by using one of the best accessories around--the ever reliable hat! Hats aren't meant to be randomly thrown on top of your head for a quick fix, it has to be used with style and class.


Here are some tips to help you ace wearing a hat this season! 


--------------------------


Know Which Hat to Wear

It's pretty tempting to just throw on any hat when you just want some extra protection from the sun and you think no one would notice. Well, a lot girls do; and if your hat isn't in sync with your whole outfit, everyone might even notice it--in a bad way. If you're wearing a free-flowing dress, put on a floppy or any laid-back hat. If you're wearing something a bit more structured, a fedora hat will do.  

Wear it as a statement

Literally and figuratively speaking, wearing a hat as a statement applies to this OOTD. After all, hats complete your outfit in more ways than one. A statement hat can be added to a simple jeans and tee look or worn with a loose sweater-dress. Stock up on hats (or caps) that are unique and can definitely turn heads. You'll never know when you'll need one. 



Coordinate with Colour

Colour coordination is applicable to any outfit and that determines whether a look is either fab or drab. Make it look fab by wearing a hat that is coordinated with the overall colour palette of your look. Experiment with different shades or you can even go matchy-matchy for a fashionably-coordinated look.  



Add a bit of variety

Don't keep on wearing the same old floppy hat, even if it does complete your look-- because that won't make you stand-out. The key to mastering fashion is for your personal style to be different. Let that tip apply to how you wear your hats as well. Try a bowler hat with a girly look; or a bonnet with a tailored look.



Make it look classy

Classy is timeless and fail-proof. If you're still clueless on how to incorporate hats to your look, the safest way is to go classy. A dress, hat, and heels is your first option. Another would be to wear it with a pair jeans, polo. and boots. You can experiment from there and before you know it, you're everyone's hat expert!

Spring is the season for bright colours, flowers, and all things vibrant; but we're still pretty undecided which colours to try first. Florals are in, laces is perfect for Spring, and Purple is also a pretty good colour.


To make up our minds, we asked 5 of our Clozetters to dish out their chosen colour for Spring. Here are their answers!

"I'm picking my favourite colour Lavender Pink to represent my favourite season--Spring! It's the season to celebrate new beginning & love. M.A.C recently launched Isabel and Ruben Toledo collections to celebrate the beginning of Spring 2015; and the ombré blusher Azalea Blossom will be my choice for this spring."

"For me, a flourishing floral outfit best represents Spring. A touch of florals & pink instantly reminds me of Spring Time."

"When it comes to Spring, most would go for blooming floral prints and bursting colours; but as for me, white is my chosen colour for the season. White is such a clean and brilliant colour that's ever so fresh! Spring is all about the gleaming new and white is the perfect, bright colour. Add floral lace prints to your lovely white top and your OOTD's easily in Spring mood!"

"Spring for me is always about colour, whether it's sweet and delicate pastels, or bold and eye-popping brights! In makeup, this trend translates well into pastel cheeks or bright lips, which both complement each other. I like the Etude House Wish Lips Talk Lipsticks, which come in bright Spring-ready shades, as well as MUFE's HD Blush, which come in both bright and muted shades and blend well into the skin."
