Pastels, earthy tones, neutral colors, dark, light, black + white - seriously any color you want will match well with your blonde hair. There are no colors you should avoid as a blonde; however, depending on what shade of blonde you are, certain colors will look better than others.
- Pastels are elegant + calming which makes a great match for lighter hair. You can find two different pastels to wear in our dae x Gigi Pip collection.

- Black + white felt hats are timeless. These colors will not only highlight your pretty blonde curls, but they’ll go swimmingly with any + all of the colors in your wardrobe.

There are two primary methods of measuring your hat size + are based on the style in which you wear your hat.
