Wearing Hats for Senior Pictures

I guess I’ve always loved hats. It reminds me of playing dress up when I was a little girl. Many senior girls don’t have a lot of hats, but never fear, I’m always adding to my collection! If you saw my recent post about the accessories in our Style Closet, you’ll know that this whole idea started with one hat. Specifically, a black floppy hat from Target. By 2014 I had started collecting hats and using them with every one of my teen and senior girls. Hats are such a fun way to change up your look and get even more variety for your senior pictures. If you make it to the end, you’ll get to see my favorite hat!

The Original Hat

This black floppy hat has been around forever! I still love it and bring it to every outdoor senior portrait session. Being black, it can coordinate with almost any outfit or if you want to try something fun, grab a ribbon or scarf to add to the hat!

Wearing a Floppy Hat

These floppy hats work great as summer accessories for your senior portraits, but in Arizona, you can pretty much wear them any time! This hat from our Style Closet works great with light, summer colors, sundresses, and rompers. It takes a little shaping but that’s about it. I just love how long hair flows from this hat, but long hair can be tucked up inside for a different look! And of course, short and sassy haircuts look great with floppy hats too!

Sunrise with the light colors and pastels…pure heaven! This one is quite a few years old but will always be a favorite!

Even more gorgeous desert colors in the spring, and this time we paired the hat with a tan scarf, also from our Style Closet!

Hats are a great way to frame your face and show off your eyes too!

Love the rustic look we got when paired with boots and jeans! We had a little trouble deciding how to wear the shirt. Tying it in the front did the trick!

Style

Hats add a different style depending on your outfit. This senior portrait was taken in the fall and was featured in the Modern Teen Style’s 2014 Pictorial Issue!

Beret

I can’t explain it, but I fell in love with this adorable beret the minute I saw it! Unfortunately I’ve only had the chance to use it a couple of times, but I still love it! If you have an outfit to match (brown jacket or boots maybe?) bring them so we can give it some love again!

Newsboy Caps

I have a few of these too! They make for a great urban vibe!

Blue hats

Light blue and dark blue, you just can’t go wrong here! Again, a little shaping goes a long way!

Do I have a favorite?

Oh yes, my favorite hat? It has to be this navy blue one from Target! I love all my hats but this is probably my favorite because it’s new and I haven’t had it long enough to bring along for my senior portrait sessions. Look out though, it’s gonna be making lots of appearances soon!

If you have hats, bring them! If you don’t have hats, check out our Style Closet and we’ll bring ours! If you don’t like hats, you will once we’re done, I promise! Hats work great for many outfits, styles, and locations so you really can’t go wrong! Here are a few more articles that show off our favorite Style Closet outfits and accessories!

Kaitlyn was just bursting full of personality throughout the entire shoot; I could barely keep up!

That’s Kaitlyn in all her glory, goofing around, splashing in the lake, and blowing adorable kisses to her mom…

One myth that seems to confuse and frustrate seniors and parents every year is whether or not they’re required to use the school photographer for senior photos. Usually, if they want to get into the yearbook, the answer is yes. Most metro Phoenix area schools will require you to use the contracted photographer if you want your picture included in the yearbook, however…
