Question:

What’s the correct etiquette with hats. When I accessorize with a hat. When and where can I wear it and where do I remove it. I.e. át church? Do I remove it upon entering. Can I wear it inside church? Btw I am female.

The good news is that women have different rules from men and can wear hats in most churches. The only similarity is that if a women is wearing a baseball style cap they are under the same rules as men and must remove them for a national anthem.
