Most people associate fedora hats with the classic, “old-school cool” look of decades past. However, that’s all about to change. Not only have fedoras taken on a new identity in 21st-century fashion, but now they are getting a technological makeover. With Bellissimo Hats’ proprietary Custom Studio, you can now create your very own custom fedora hat from scratch!
You might be wondering why you should go to the effort of designing your own hat (even though it’s very easy to do). However, if you’re like most shoppers and fashion enthusiasts, you’ve probably experienced the following scenario: you ever go into a store and find something that is close to what you want, but not exactly right. Depending on how picky you are, you may decide to just buy it anyway, because it’s close enough to meet your needs. But it’s not really what you want. This is where product customization comes into play. If you’re going to spend your hard-earned money on a nice piece of clothing or fashion accessory, why not make sure that it aligns perfectly with your personal taste and sense of style?
In today’s post, we’re going to look at exactly how to design your own fedora hat, from start to finish. And before we get started, don’t worry if you don’t know a lot about hat design. Using Bellissimo Hats’ Custom Studio, you can create the fedora hat of your dreams with just a few clicks!
Most people don’t know their hat size, so if you’re unsure what size you need, you’re definitely not alone. However, finding the right hat for your head size is crucial. Buying a hat that’s too small or too big simply won’t create a good look.
Fortunately, it’s not hard to find the right hat size for you, whether you’re measuring in inches or centimeters. Even if you only have a piece of string or a shoelace, you can easily measure hat size and see where you lie on our hat size chart. Feel free to check out our tutorial on measuring your own head size for more information!
Once you know what size you need, you can easily customize your fedora hat accordingly. Whether you need a Small, Extra-Extra Large, or something in between — you can create a hat to fit your head perfectly! From there, you can focus on all of the most important elements of your fedora...
When it comes to creating the perfect hat to match your style, color is key. Currently, Bellissimo Hats offers 16 distinct colors to choose from — with even more to come in the future. With so many color options, you’re bound to find the right hue to complete your look and create a one-of-a-kind fedora hat!
Color is also extremely important when designing a custom fedora hat to coordinate with the rest of your wardrobe. You don’t want to pick a color that doesn’t fit your sense of fashion — unless you want to give yourself a completely new look, of course! So, you should take your time when picking a color and choose one that complements your skin tone, hair color, eye color, wardrobe, and even your other accessories. Needless to say, there are a lot of different factors to consider!
In any case, when you’re ready to design your own fedora, you can choose from any of the following colors that will cover the “body” of your hat:
- Coffee Brown
- Gunmetal Gray
- Antique Rose
- Powder Blue
- Sapphire Blue
- Olive Green
- Chocolate Brown
Naturally, designing the perfect fedora ribbon is an integral part of creating the overall “look” that you want. While you could always wear a fedora without any visual flourishes, a hat with a ribbon offers a unique and visually appealing contrast of colors. For this reason, we allow you to choose from one of 14 different colors for your hat ribbon, including:
- Rust Brown
- Sudan Brown
- Light Gray
- Dark Gray
- Royal Blue
- Powder Blue
- Antique Rose
The 1.5-inch ribbons are adorned with a classic bow design, giving you an elegant balance between simplicity and refined fashion. Moreover, the wide selection of color options means that you have even more power to make a completely unique fedora hat. In fact, there are well over 200 color combinations you can create between your fedora and ribbon alone — to say nothing of other features, like feathers or hat linings!
Whether you want a hat with a feather or without a feather, this gives you even more ways to customize your fedora and stand out from the crowd. While not all fedoras feature feathers, we include this option in our Custom Studio. Why? Because a fedora feather can add an interesting pop of color to any hat. Moreover, a small feather tucked into the ribbon of your hat can make your accessory even more extravagant and ornate.
If you don’t want a feather in your cap, don’t worry — it’s optional. However, it is an add-on that appeals to many people’s styles, as the feathers cover a wide range of both natural and neon colors — from green and pink to white and beige. Though we intend to increase our feather options in the future, you currently have 8 different options to choose from.
Since color plays an important role in the visual appeal of your hat, it’s important to note that you can always mix and match different styles during the creative process. In other words, you can see exactly what your future hat will look like with just the click of a button. Want to see how a black feather would look with a navy ribbon and an orange hat? Not a problem! You can switch things around as much as you like until you find the perfect combination for you!
While the outward appearance of your hat is one of the most important things to consider, you’ll also want an interior design that is both stylish and comfortable. Fortunately, we’ve still got you covered. Our custom hat linings allow you to choose between red, blue, and black. Regardless of the color, they are all made with satin lining, providing optimal comfort and temperature control.
Alternatively, if you have an image or design that you want to use for the interior lining, you can simply upload a photo to the Custom Studio. This will allow you to have a custom fedora hat that is literally one-of-a-kind! Whether it’s a logo, design, or a piece of art that you really appreciate, you can ensure that your hat lining adds even more of your own personal touch to the final product!
Once you find the perfect combination of colors, styles, and designs, you just have to decide if you’d like to feature the Bellissimo Hats logo on the lining and ribbon of your hat. If you do, everyone will know that your hat is made with the best possible materials and high-quality craftsmanship!
