Hats - Choosing your Best Hat Color
The Brown hat
Complexion: Brown hats look better with ruddy (approaching redness) and dark complexions; and with auburn, sandy and red hair. Brown hats are also acceptable, with any color hair, although not particularly good with gray hair. The brown hat is acceptable with all complexions except the slightly pale olive. Dark brown hats are also acceptable with a healthy olive complexion.
Clothing: Brown hats are best worn with brown or green suits and coats. Dark Brown hats are acceptable with dark gray and dark blue suits. In medium and lighter tones, brown-blue, and brown-gray combinations should be avoided.
Clothing Accessories: When contrasting brown hats you could use clothing accessories such as yellows, blues, dark greens, and wine colors; they add richness to a brown hat. A brown hat with a yellow scarf is especially attractive. Light brown accessories go well with dark brown hats; as do dark brown accessories with light brown hats.
The Green hat
Complexion: Green hats look better with healthy complexioned gray-haired, blonde, and brown haired men. Dark green hats also look good with a healthy olive complexion. Green hats are also acceptable with any healthy complexion, and with any color hair; and emphasize red hair. The green hat is not recommended with pale complexions.
Clothing: Green hats are most attractive with brown, or tan suits and coats; and naturally good with green suits. Green hats top off light gray and medium gray suits and coats very pleasingly. They are also acceptable with dark gray and black.
Clothing Accessories: It is recommended to repeat green tones in clothing accessories with green hats. Brown, or brownish yellow colored ties and shirts are also good. A black and white patterned tie or scarf is pleasing. With a dark green hat, daring contrasts can be secured with tasteful touches of mulberry, or pale yellow.
The Blue hat
Complexion: Blue hats look best with blue eyes; and with ruddy, and light flushed complexions. Blue hats are also acceptable with any color hair. Blue hats have the tendency to emphasize red hair. Dark blue hats are acceptable with slightly pale complexions.
Clothing: Blue hats are best with blue or gray clothing. Blue hats must not "clash" with blue suits. Match tones closely or contrast a dark blue hat with a lighter blue suit, or vice-versa. Blue hats are also acceptable with neutral brown, and tan suits.
Clothing Accessories: Blue shirts, ties, or scarfs go very well with a blue hat. Gray or neutral brown clothing accessories also make a pleasing effect with the blue hats. When decided contrast between blue hats and clothing accessories is desired; yellows, and wine colors are especially good.
The Gray hat
Complexion: The Gray hats are best with light complexions; and with blonde, brunette, or iron gray hair. Gray hats are also acceptable with almost all men. Gray hats are acceptable with a ruddy complexion (approaching redness). Gray hats also neutralizes brown eyes, and brown hair. Be aware of slightly pale complexions.
Clothing: Light gray hats are best with blue, dark gray, or black suits and coats. Dark gray hats are best with gray or green clothing fabrics. All gray hats are acceptable with suits in any of the foregoing colors. Gray hats, of any shade, are least attractive when worn with brown.
Clothing Accessories: A great range of colors are allowed when choosing clothing accessories for a gray hat, because gray is neutral. Vivid or deep contrasting colors are particularly good as they tone up the particular outfit. Clothing accessories which are predominantly black and white, but have bright touches of green, blue, or red are good.
