How to Choose the Right Baseball Cap?

1.     Choose by Faces

In general, there are 3 types of faces. Here they are: square face, round face, and pointed face.

If people who have round faces wear a round-top hat, then their faces will look bigger and the hat on top will be small, which is super abrupt and strange. If the round-top hat is changed to a wide-brimmed baseball cap, then the baseball cap can cover the deficiencies of round faces and make the face look small.

However, pointy-faced people are fit to wear a round-top hat, because if people who have pointy faces wear a baseball cap, then the whole face looks into a wide top and a small bottom, which makes the face look smaller, which is quite abrupt. That’s why pointy-faced people are fit to wear a round-top hat.

Square-faced people can wear all kinds of hats.

2.     Choose by body shapes

The second is to choose the right hat for your body shape. This is the second factor to consider when choosing a baseball cap.

Tall people should choose large hats rather than small ones, otherwise, the whole look is unbalanced – heavy head and light bottom. The opposite is true for short people. Tall women should not wear tall baseball caps or the whole look will be too high. Petite girls should avoid flat and wide-brimmed baseball caps, which can make them look shorter.
