What hat size is the right one for me?

Cocktail hats, fascinators and headbands have universal fitting and will fit all head sizes. I may require your head size to adjust the length of the hat elastic.

For full size hats – cloche hats, fedora hats, summer hats etc. – will be made to fit your head size. Please note that the hat size should be slightly larger than your head size (circumference), usually 5-7mm/ 1/4” larger. See my Hat Size Guide for reference. 

How can I make sure the hat colour matches my outfit?

I try to capture the true colour of the hats as closely as possible but please keep in mind that the colour that you see in your PC, smartphone or tablet can be different because of the screen settings. Please contact me if you are interested in a particular colour of a hat and I will send you more pictures. I can also send material swatches (4.5o EUR).

How do fascinators and cocktail hats stay on? What hat fixing should I choose?

In the item description I have selected the best options how to attach the hat/ fascinator securely. For fascinators and smaller headpieces it will be a comb or headband, for cocktail hats I recommend a hat elastic and/ or comb. You can read more about this in my post “How to fix a fascinator or cocktail hat”. 

Should you require a custom fixing for the chosen hat or fascinator please contact me prior to purchase.
