13 Outfit Ideas on How to Style Painters Hat for Women

When I wrote a blog post about flat cap outfit ideas, one of my friends told me that she really enjoyed that piece of writing more than any other piece she read in the website. She said that it’s rather easy to find outfit ideas for popular items like boyfriend jeans outfit ideas on the internet, but not for something so niche like the flat cap. I am so encouraged by her comments so I decided to write a sequel for that particular blog post. I am going to write about how to wear painters hat indeed. There is a slight difference between flat caps and painters hat. A flat cap obviously has a flat top while the painter hat, a.k.a painter cap, has a round top with a small button at the peak of the hat. Now, let’s check out the list of some of the best painter hat outfit ideas.

Red Painter Hat with Black & White Striped Tee & Suspender Skirt


I am starting off the list strong by putting my favorite outfit idea here. To achieve a artistic and beautiful look, you can wear a black and white long sleeve striped t shirt with a black suspender mini skirt. Wear black leggings with black ballet flats. Finally, wear a red painters cap to complete the amazing outfit. If you look closely, you may have noticed that you can actually take it one step further by matching the color of your lips with the hat.

Black Painter Cap with Black Long Cardigan

The previous outfit is a very unique outfit that will really demand people’s attention. If you prefer something more low key yet still looks beautiful, you can try this nearly all-black outfit. Simply wear a black and green striped sweater with a long black cardigan. For the bottom, you can wear a black mini skirt, stockings and black ankle boots. For a final touch of artistic feel, wear a dark grey wool scarf and a black painters cap.

Black Cap with Black Bomber Jacket

Sometimes, you can just play around and see if a painter hat can add some beauty to your outfit by accident. For example, this outfit is a pretty typical street outfit that consists of a black knit sweater, a black bomber jacket, boyfriend jeans and white sneakers. Wear it with a black painters hat just happens to make a world of difference.

Wear with Black Sweater & Tweed Pants

For a super unique and artistic winter look, you can wear a black painter cap with a black high neck knit sweater and tweed pants. For the shoes, don’t wear something too casual like sneakers or something too fancy like strappy heels. A pair of solid black or pale pink heels would be just right.

Red Cap with Red Sweater & Plaid Pencil Skirt

Sometimes when you are traveling, it feels more comfortable to dress in styles that you normally wouldn’t try but at the same time, you are eager to try. That often includes styles that you see in old school movies. As a good example of that, this outfit consists of a red sweater, a red and blue plaid pencil skirt, a silk scarf and a red painter hat. It is really cool to dress very differently when you travel especially if you have someone else to do this silly and fun stuff with you.
