Choosing the Perfect Cap Based on Your Face Shape
When choosing clothes, we consider the fit as an important consideration alongside color, print and style. The same is true when picking out a cap: The fit should compliment your unique facial structure and proportions. Finding that perfect cap that flatters your face size and shape will help you express your creativity and personal style better, and enhance your overall look.
The question is how to determine your face shape and size. You can do this by getting a ruler or a measuring tape, and then measure your forehead, cheekbones, jawline and face length. If you don’t have a ruler or measuring tape, using a charging cable or headphone cord works well, too. Spend a few moments in front of a mirror to study your face shape and try on different hat styles to see which ones are best suited to your face.
Different Face Shapes and Our Recommended Caps
In finding the ideal cap for your face shape, a good rule of thumb is to consider which natural facial features you want to emphasize or play down. Consider your style as well. When we say caps, we usually think about outdoor, everyday and streetwear fashion, though there are instances when caps can be worn on more formal occasions.
Below are our recommended New Era streetwear caps for different face shapes.
Oval faces, sometimes referred to as egg-shaped, are deemed by many as the most blessed facial shape due to its proportional structure that goes well with any hat style. As a lengthier version of a round face, an oval-shaped face has a forehead that’s slightly wider than the chin, and a jaw that’s narrower compared to the cheekbones. Celebrities who have oval-shaped faces include Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jude Law.
