Smile, Snap, Slay: Senior Picture Perfection with Cute Hats

Just imaging the scene; you, bathed in golden sunlight, wearing a chic sun hat that complements your outfit flawlessly. Hats come in various shapes and sizes, but the key lies in how they frame your face and to your overall look. Whether it's a classic felt hat, chic sun hat, or even an edgy newsboy cap, each hue and style can convey a different mood, reflecting your unique personality. Pair your sun hat with flowy dresses for a whimsical, ethereal vibe or with casual attire for a laid-back, yet polished look.

Adding Style with Cute Hats

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! The whole idea of a Style Closet started with just ONE one hat. Specifically, a black floppy hat from Target. By 2014 I had started collecting hats and using them with many of my teen and senior girls. Everyone loves them! Hats are such a fun way to change up your look and get even more variety for your senior pictures.

It’s been around forever, but it’s a class and my seniors love it! Being black, it can coordinate with almost any outfit or pair it with these cute heart sunglasses, which are also available from the Style Closet. Hats are a great way to frame your face and show off your eyes too!
