When should women wear hats in church?

Can you please clarify when and if it is acceptable for women to wear hats to Mass? Also, if a particular hat is not “okay” would you please included that information as well?

Women can wear hats to Mass whenever they like. About the only guidance I can think of as to type of hat might be that it would be thoughtful to avoid wearing an oversized hat that would obstruct the view of the altar of those sitting behind you.
