gigi pip hat styles


Hat shopping can be overwhelming. How can you tell the difference between a fedora or boater? What material is it made out of? Will it look good on me?

Here's a breakdown of Gigi Pip + the styles we carry.

Most Gigi Pip hats can be divided into the following categories:

Fedora - Some examples include Leo, Wes, Scottie, Emma, Britton, Billie
A fedora is a brimmed hat with a pinched crown. Fedoras will compliment any face shape so we usually recommend this style to first time hat buyers.

Boater - Some examples include Dahlia, Brae, Faye
You can easily distinguish a boater hat because of its flat crown. Named after Italian gondoliers + typically made of straw but our Dahlia is a great felt option.

Gambler - Some examples include Ginger, Luna, Sloan
Gambler hats have a round crown + upturned brims. Our gambler hat was named after our owner + founder Ginger Parrish.

Dome Crown - Some examples include Annabella, Hallie, Olivette, Addie
Dome crown hats will have a rounded top + usually have a floppy brim. These are popular options for those who love to travel since they are easy to pack. 

Some other styles we carry include the following: 
Trilby - Ruth

Lifeguard - Carmen, Eden

Visor - Laila, Sunburst

Beret - Sophie
