March 1949 - Easter Bonnets for Every Face!

From March 1949 comes advice on the right hat for your face shape. If you are lucky enough to have an oval face, like the beauty above, then you can wear any style and shape of hat.

If you have a long face, a bonnet with a broken crown will cut the height of forehead, and a deep crown helps hide the depth of your head. You can also wear a large-brimmed hat, providing the brim dips. Don't wear a high crown or a tiny hat.

Balance a triangular face with a thick-edged bonnet, which emphasizes the heart-shaped look.You can also wear a slanted pillbox set slightly back, or a small beret.

If your face is round, the hat line should be broken  at the side. A deep crown is a good balance, and a tiny brim frames the face. You can also wear a deep-crowned hat, a one-sided toque, or a bonnet with a high curving brim.

For the square face, try a smallish sailor with a flower-filled brim to balance the width of the cheekbones. A rolling brim with a profile line, a tilted, draped turban, or a beret angled to one side are also good.
