do you really say "in" in English for a hat, not "with"?

Yes. All the following are OK:
1. You look good in a hat.
2. You look good without a hat.
3. You look good with a hat on your head.

Either sounds right, but I understand your point. "In a hat" does seem strange, but we do say that, more often than you'd hear "with a hat".

Native speaker, both sound fine. But if you add a descriptive phrase, "in" sounds better. E.g. "You look good in a blue hat" sounds better than "you look good with a blue hat", but "you look good in/with a hat" both sound fine.
