Topping your outfit off with a hat is a must to not only keep warm, but to look stylish, too. But finding the perfect style can be tough. So that's where we come in. We're spilling our secrets on how to select the best fall hats for your specific face shape.

Oval

Characteristics: Your features (cheekbones, forehead and chin) are narrow and well-balanced.

Hat pick: Go for a smaller, tight beanie that doesn't sit high on the head. That way, your face will not appear any longer than it already is.

Hat pick: Try something a little slouchier, like a slouchy oversize beanie, to soften the angular features in your face.
