Headwear is not only functional
Whether you prefer hats or beanies, most of us have something lying in our wardrobe to cover our heads. In the Netherlands, it is a good idea to have a beanie for those cold, winter days. A beanie ensures that your head and ears stay nice and warm.
Hats are mainly worn for looks. They add a certain look to you and your outfit. Whereas hats used be worn as part of formal dress or by wealthier people, nowadays there is an array of hats to choose from for more casual wear.
Caps were originally designed to keep the sun off your face. Nowadays, we tend to associate caps with cool and sporty people and they often have striking prints.
Headwear for men and women
Headwear can be worn by both men and women. Part of our collection is unisex so that our hats, beanies and caps can be worn by both women and men.
Differences between women's and men's headwear
The main difference is that headwear for women often has a bit more detail and comes in softer colors such as pink. Women's headwear is generally somewhat smaller too.
However, the differences between men's and women's headwear are getting smaller. For example, we have seen an increasing trend in the fashion world for men to wear pink and accessories. Whilst women are increasingly wearing more 'sturdy' accessories.
Select the right headwear to suit your face
A particular beanie or hat may not suit everyone. It is important to choose headwear that suits the shape of your face. Here are some tips to help you choose the right headwear for you.
A wide-brimmed hat is perfect for a long and angular face. This hat has a wide brim round the entire head. A nice asymmetrical hat looks particularly good on people with a square face. Choose a hat with a small brim if you have a round face. People with oval faces can pretty much wear any type of headwear.
History of headwear
Humans have worn some kind of headwear since the Ice Age. Headwear was mainly used to protect the head against falling objects. It was not until centuries later that hats started to be associated with people's social status and they became an important accessory during certain traditions.
From the 20th century onwards, the hat became a real fashion accessory. Hat makers were able to fully express their creativity when making hats in all different shapes and sizes. And even today, headwear can be used to denote a certain social status.
