Vintage Headpieces and Hats

Historically an indicator of social status, the hat in all its shapes has long been the ultimate style distinguisher and its fashion legacy carries on to date.

 

 In the early 1800s, women opted for eccentric bonnets with feathers, flowers and ribbons which in the 1920s had evolved into neater head-hugging hats with more movement-friendly embellishments. The styles of hats that have emerged since are very diverse in style and purpose – below we have untangled the most significant types of hats over the decades to help you in your search for the perfect vintage headpiece. 

Beret

 The beret hat is a soft round cap, traditionally made from woollen felt, with a bulging flat crown and a tight-fitting brimless headband. The style is highly associated with France, the military and early 1900’s school uniforms. 

Cloche hat 

As the name suggests, the cloche hat is a bell-shaped ladies hat with a more or less accentuated cap. Popular in the 1920s, the style was embraced by the public through iconic artist performers like Josephine Baker. 

Fedora 

Probably the most coveted hat style, the fedora hat got its name from Victorien Sardou’s cross-dresser play Fedora and became a symbol of the women’s rights movement. In the 1920s the style became popular also amongst men and has since enjoyed a consistent revive through icons like Indiana Jones, Frank Sinatra and Johnny Depp. 

Pillbox hat 

A pillbox hat is a small women’s hat with a flat crown, straight, upright sides, and no brim. It is named after the small cylindrical cases that pills used to be sold in and influenced by military headgear. The pillbox is much associated with the 1960s and was the hat of choice of First Lady Jackie O.
