One of those days where you aren’t sure what to wear? You’ve come to the right place. In this post we will be breaking down three different looks to help you figure out the best fit to pair with your hat.
High-low dressing is all about taking that expensive special piece in your closet and wearing her out for any occasion.
-Pair this evening dress with something a little less fancy. Don’t let her sit in the back of your closet.
-To dress her down we paired her with our Mo Pom beanie in Cream.
-High-Low dressing is all about making your statement piece more wearable for everyday. Take a classic sweater to pair but make sure it falls in a neutral color scheme. We don’t wan’t that statement piece lost.
-A sneaker will definitely emphasize your special piece while still giving you that undone vibe.
Overall, High-Low dressing is about leading with chic and accenting with the everyday.
Monochromatic is our go-to look! We love this look because it always looks high end and takes little effort. For this look we chose cream as our base color.
-The trick to a monochromatic look is mixing colors and variations/textures of your color of choice. Pairing the Ezra in ivory with this look gives us that interesting shape while staying within our realm of cream.
-Layer up! Let’s start with the basics. This off white T paired with these white jeans will do.
-Let’s keep things interesting. We are going to take white socks and pair them with some heels in the same color. That’s right. Socks with heels!
-We like to keep things special at Gigi Pip. So we are going to throw on this one of a kind vintage tan sweater.
-Almost done! Layer like a cake and add this light weight cream duster.
-Final touch. Add jewels for some shine! We wen’t with gold.
All done! If you’ll notice while we utilized different shades and textures the overall color you see is cream.
DENIM ON DENIM
With an all denim look the trick of the trade is to mix different shades of denim together and pair with elevated pieces. Let’s avoid the look of the Canadian Tuxedo while still wearing the Canadian Tuxedo!
-The Ginger in Ivory pairs with anything and everything so today, that is what we are wearing.
-Start with a light top. We are going with this Levi’s jacket.
-Next up is bottoms, make sure these are darker. Vintage 501’s? Don’t mind if we do.
-Now that we have our base denim pieces together. Let’s break them up! We are going to take a classic tuxedo jacket and some heels. These pieces elevate our base layers while still telling the story of… We love denim!
The key to pulling off this look is keeping your base denim contrasted and then add some sparkle. Accessorize! Be sure to not go overboard.
Women's hat sizes are fairly intuitive. The average women's head size measures around 57cm. If you are unsure of your hat size the Gigi Pip small/medium hat would be the best starting point. The small/medium hat size is made to fit 57cm + can be adjusted down to 55cm. If you know you have a slightly larger head go with the 59cm size. As far as Gigi Pip sizing goes this is a medium/large, made to fit a 59cm head size + then can be adjusted down to 57cm. The largest size Gigi Pip offers is a 61 cm, labeled as an XL, like our other sizes the 61 can be sized down to 59 cm. For women who feel they have a slightly smaller head than normal we recommend an XS which begins at 55cm + can be sized down to 53 cm. In select styles we offer kids sizing which begins at 53 cm + can be adjusted to 51 cm.
In short- the most common hat size is a S/M (57cm). While this is the most common hat size, remember that properly sizing your Gigi Pip hat will ensure the best fit.
There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat. You will need to take both measurements (shown below) + then use the larger of the two measurements to determine your hat size. Once you've received your hat, you can decide how you would like to wear it + adjust your hat size accordingly.
TIP: If you don't have a textile measuring tape, use a string or piece of yarn to measure the distance around your head. After you have marked the yarn around your head, lay it out flat on the ground or table + measure the straightened out piece of yarn with a measuring stick or regular measuring tape.
Adjustable Inner Band Instructions
Flip up the sweatband to find the Velcro tab + pull to tighten. Velcro the ribbon back in place to secure your desired fit. The adjustable band can adjust the hat up to 5 cm when necessary! Some helpful tips about our adjustable inner band-
Hat Sizing Tape Instructions
Hat sizing tape is an additional option for tightening the fit of your hat. Place the foam tape on the inside of your hat, behind the sweatband, with the sticky side facing towards the hat wall. Wrap the tape completely around the hat for maximum size decrease or cut tape length in half for a more moderate decrease. Size to fit prior to removing the adhesive cover. Once the fit is correct, remove the adhesive cover, press firmly into place, and wa-lah.
