V&A · 1960s Accessories

From a floppy black hat to ‘Space Age’ boots, 1960s fashion accessories played a key role in creating the ultra-modern look. Our top-to-toe guide features iconic pieces by the decade’s leading designers.

Hat by Edward Mann
This wide-brimmed woman’s hat in black felt is by high-fashion London milliner Edward Mann, who designed hats for Emma Peel, Diana Rigg’s character in the cult 60s spy drama The Avengers. In the first half of the 20th century hats had been an everyday item of dress. But by the 1960s, especially for young people, they became a means of extending the impact of an outfit, rather than a badge of respectability. Earlier in the decade, women’s hat styles – including the popular ‘bucket cloche’ and the ‘baker boy’ cap – were influenced by Mod fashion, but towards its close, styles began to grow bigger and less structured. Popular towards the end of the 1960s, the kind of ‘floppy hat’ that Mann designed created a soft frame for the face, and was influenced by the hippie culture that began to steer the direction of mainstream taste.

Glasses and sunglasses by Oliver Goldsmith
Leading eyewear company Oliver Goldsmith was one of the first to recognise the fashion potential of glasses and sunglasses. They supplied eyewear to most of the decade’s cultural icons, including Audrey Hepburn, Michael Caine, Jackie Onassis and Peter Sellars; their sunglasses were also the first to appear in the pages of Vogue. At the beginning of the 1960s, the popularity of stand-out eyewear was well established, having been influenced by the glamour of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and other Hollywood stars wearing ‘shades’. What changed in the following decade was how big and bold frames became – Oliver Goldsmith’s ‘TV set’ and ‘giant O’ designs were a memorable expression of the 1960s’ love affair with exaggerated Modernism. Oliver Goldsmith courted publicity by creating deliberately more unusual frames, but the firm could also design for the mass market: its chunky RIP frame became one of the decade’s bestselling looks.

Jewellery by Wendy Ramshaw and David Watkins
Jewellery designers Wendy Ramshaw and David Watkins made their first technically innovative pieces in the 1960s. Their idiosyncratic work suited the times: in the early 1960s, the often rather formal stone-set jewellery on offer in the first half of the century began to be superseded by a wide variety of styles, many made from plastic. Combining backgrounds in industrial design and fine art, Ramshaw and Watkins were well placed to exploit this new landscape. Married in 1962 after they met at Reading University, the pair collaborated on their first project the following year: ‘Optik’, a series of bold, Op Art-inspired pieces made from screen-printed Perspex.

Handbag by Sally Jess
British bag designer Sally Jess was known for creating resolutely modern pieces, like her handbag made from silver PVC and perspex. Designed in 1966, the silver-PVC handbag illustrates a number of key mid-decade trends: exaggerated form, a bold use of new materials, Mod-inspired simplicity and, via its eye-catching silver, Space Age futurism. This kind of fun, affordable bag presented an easy way for young women to assert their independence from their mothers, who would have been likely to choose a classic snap-close leather handbag as an investment piece.

With a background in sculpture, Jess was interested in exploring form in her bags – in particular, large, quirky handles became a signature. She was the main supplier of bags to Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin, whose off-Carnaby Street store was a key address on the ‘Swinging London’ scene. Jess could also offer customers the thrill of a celebrity connection, being the sister of Mick Fleetwood, the drummer of rising rock band Fleetwood Mac.

Tights, Mary Quant, 1960s, UK. Museum no. T.705-1995. © Victoria and Albert Museum, London

Quant is recognised as the first designer to commercialise tights, which were an entirely new product in the fashion industry at the time. Tights designed by Mary Quant were one of the first items produced under licence using the designer’s name. For Quant, tights were a means of facilitating the super-short skirted designs that were helping make her name. Although stockings had been produced in extra-long lengths in the early 1960s, even these weren’t long enough to conceal the wearer’s stocking tops when sporting a ‘mini’ dress or skirt. Quant commissioned suppliers of theatrical costumes to make opaque woven tights in the same colours as her mini skirts and dresses, helping fuel a general explosion in public enthusiasm for this new accessory. Quant is also credited with popularising patterned tights, with her eye-catching Op Art designs.

Boots by André Courrèges
Made in 1965, these pure-white leather ankle boots were designed by French designer André Courrèges. Courrèges had launched his ‘Space Age’ collection the previous year – with a focus on minimal, boldly futuristic shapes – which had a profound influence on the general direction of 1960s style.

Courrèges’s ideas were widely copied for the mass market; a version of his white boots became essential for women who were keen to copy the ‘moon girl’ look. They represented a new, more energetic feminine dress code inspired by the practicality of sportswear – unlike a lot of footwear at the time, flat boots allowed their wearers to run if they chose to. The design of these white leather boots is typical of Courrèges’s work: simple, subtly avant-garde and illustrating a quietly technical use of materials (before studying fashion, Courrèges had trained as an engineer, and then learned superior cutting skills during a ten-year stint working for Cristóbal Balenciaga).

The history of Boonie Hats

History and Evolution

Pre-Vietnam War

The origin of the actual design is hard to pinpoint. One could go back at least 100 years to  fisherman hats called “bucket hats” which were made of wool or tweed and bore a faint resemblance to the modern boonie.

In the late 1930s, the U.S. military issued hats with a wide brim that went all around the head. First made of denim and later herringbone twill, these were nicknamed “Daisy Mae” hats (after a comic-strip character of the time). It, too, somewhat resembled what we know today as a boonie.

But U.S. troops weren’t alone in using these types of hats. The British Commonwealth and its forces had their own hot-climate uniform that came with a “bush hat”. This hat was widely used by Commonwealth forces during the Second World War and later during the Malayan Emergency (a guerrilla war during the decolonisation phase that took place in the 1950s and 1960s).

The Australians called their version of this headwear “Giggle hats” because of the shorter brim and more or less ridiculous look. Already, then, the design was very popular among the troops because of its comfort and practical use in warmer climates.

Vietnam and the Special Forces

But none of these conflicts made the boonie famous. That happened during the Vietnam War, when it was widely used by special forces like the MACV-SOG and the Long Range Reconnaissance Patrols. In the beginning, these hats were made in a variety of styles and all purchased from local sewing shops using mostly recycled fabric in Tigerstripe or ERDL camouflage as well as Olive Green.

Soldiers being soldiers, these hats were extensively personalized with slogans, logos, and the like. Naturally, the wearers felt great attachment to them.

In 1967, the U. S. military began issuing boonie hats on a regular basis, officially designating them in typical military nomenclature as “hat, jungle, with insect net.” They supplemented regular patrol and baseball caps used by soldiers in garrison, thus paving the road to the boonie’s success.

Image source: The Last Patrol

It was during the Vietnam War that the boonie acquired its famous name—although it is not quite clear why it ended up being called boonie. Some have speculated that boonie is a reference to the Tagalog word bundok, which means mountain.

Without much context, this seems far-fetched, but it makes sense if you consider that bundok morphed into boondocks, a slang word introduced by Americans fighting in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War (1899-1902). Boondocks referred to people coming from the mountains.

The term later evolved into a description for anything coming out of a wilderness area and was eventually shortened to boonie—a rather fitting name given Vietnam’s spectrum of landscape, which ranges from mountainous terrain to jungle deltas.

Boonie hats went on to become a standard item and were part of all major conflicts in hot and jungle climates, fielded by many different nations and non-state actors. They can be seen in photographs taken of the Gulf wars and the war in Afghanistan.

Boonies are now so common that it’s hard to imagine a time when they weren’t worn by some forces somewhere.

The thought behind boonie hats

The boonie hat is not simply a fashion statement, but a product born of necessity. Given the hot and humid climates for which boonies are designed, they’re more comfortable than a helmet and better at offering protection against rain and sun.

The round shape of the helmet is yet another reason why boonies are necessary. Because of its wide brim and shapeless form, a boonie helps break up the wearer’s silhouette and conceals the easily identifiable shape of his head. More concealment is possible by affixing some vegetation to the foliage ring—every military boonie comes with one (it’s the webbing along the crown of the hat and consists of many loops).

However, the wide brim also has its disadvantages. When wet, the brim is prone to sag which reduces the wearer’s field of view. Some troops—especially reconnaissance teams—got around this problem by cutting the brim shorter. This resulted in a design known today as the “Recce Boonie”.

Depending on the country, boonies may come in a variety of designs. These can include different forms of ventilation (grommets, tunnels, and mesh) as well as snaps that permit affixing the brim to the crown to allow the boonie to become more like a safari hat.

Boonie hats are known for the ease with which they can be modified in the field. For example, Vietnam War-era recon teams sewed orange panels inside their boonies. Doing so allowed wearers to signal aircraft overhead simply by raising and lowering their hats. Turning the hats inside out allowed these same panels to also be used as extraction markers that enabled friendly troops to easily identify their own from the air when push came to shove in this time before IR strobes.

Another boonie hat modification included flat inside pockets to store documents. This modification made sense for use in humid, wet jungle environments since the head stayed dry longest. 

Last but not least, there was the strap—a most basic feature, but essential to keeping the boonie in place and preventing its loss.

We kept all these features and modifications in mind as we designed our Striker Gen. 2 Boonie Hat. For instance, you will find a wire installed in the front and back of the wide brim to let you shape the brim just the way you like it—this lets you take better control of your field of view, even when the boonie is wet. Other features we included: dedicated mesh areas to provide ventilation and a pocket for documents on the inside.

The status quo of headwear

So, where does the boonie fit in in today’s world of headwear? First of all, military/tactical hats and caps are widely regarded as part of the uniform. Indeed, soldiers in almost every army on this planet are required to wear something on their head at all times when outside a building or vehicle.

Over the decades, several types of caps gained fame and earned a solid reputation—just as did the boonie hat. The patrol cap is one of them. It is still in use, especially for garrison life or during patrols when no helmets are needed.

American headwear designs have had a massive impact, even on subcultures, and were adopted around the globe. But the U.S. was not the only country known for iconic headwear.

In the German-speaking sphere you routinely encounter the field cap, a style that traces back to the headpieces worn in the 1930s and earlier by German and Austrian mountaineers and members of mountain-warfare groups.

The Brits, meanwhile, still use berets in garrison. And the distinctive French “Bigeard cap” continues to have its place among multiple armies.

Image source: New York Minute Magazine

Now, thanks to the war on terror (or, better said, the conflicts of the 21st century) and the trend toward privatization of security, making a comeback is the good old-fashioned baseball cap.

Instead of calling them baseball caps, they are now commonly known as “operator” or “contractor” caps. This is appropriate in light of their wide use among military contractors and special forces troops operating in civilian disguise.

However, unlike actual baseball caps, operator caps come without a top button (so as to prevent painful encounters with punches) and may include ear protection as well as a prominent frontal area containing Velcro. 

Together with the boonie hat, these caps are now the dominant headwear in the commercial tactical market, second only to the mandatory patrol and field caps for everyday garrison life. This is also the reason why you will find both styles of headwear in our tactical caps.

Conclusion

It should be clear that the boonie hat is far more than an accessory to wear on a Sunday fishing trip. For several decades now, this simple piece of headwear has offered soldiers protection from the elements and concealment from their enemies.

Next to the operator cap it is a very in-demand item throughout the tactical community and the civilian world. Given current trends, its popularity could be as unassailable as its status as a legendary piece of headwear.

What is a Floppy Hat?

If you love to be out in the sun yet still look fresh and fashionable, take a close look at the floppy hat showcasing its form, function, history and the ways to wear it properly.

Hat fashion has gone a long way from being worn for style, sun protection, or symbolizing a uniform component. You can’t help but notice these enormous, broad, droopy hats bouncing around on a person’s head whether you walk into a local country club, go hiking with pals, or even visit a public beach.

You’d recognize it as a hat, but what precisely is this “floppy hat“?

  • A floppy hat, also known as a sun hat, harvest hat, or field hat, has a wide brim designed to protect the face and shoulders from the sun.
  • Floppy hats come in various materials and styles, such as straw sun hats, pressed fiber sun hats, and lightly woven floppy hats.

Wide brim or floppy brim hats are precisely what the name suggests. Their Brims can be up to 10 inches wide, while some designers style them to be larger, although most are between 4 and 6 inches wide. Recent decades have seen floppy hats become fashionable and functional clothing.

With that said, how did the floppy hat make its way to become a stylish choice?

The History Of The Floppy Hat

“I wear a hat to keep my ideas warm.”

Floppy hats have numerous functions other than being aesthetically attractive. During the summer, the urge to wear a hat may become an absolute requirement. Vintageinspired sun hats are an ideal type of sun protection, protecting both skin and eyes from the almighty light.

They also make an excellent fashion statement. Before it became a fashion item, the floppy hat served as a protective device: its first appearance goes back to the 14th century. One of its descendants is the Chinese palmleaf sun hat. Through fascinating evolutionary tweaks, it became a trendy, fashionable, and reliable item.

Initially constructed of straw, it was in the 20th century that it grew in popularity due to its democratization: the film The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967) is a historical event of the floppy hat, which was coupled for the occasion with the costumes of Françoise Dorléac and Catherine Deneuve.

Floppy hats with broader brims were a significant component of the hippie style in the ’60s to the ’70s and were worn by younger celebrities and people who embraced the counterculture. These popular hats at craft fairs and stylish boutiques were made of felt, woven straw, or leather.

As a new emblem of elegance, it emerged as a popular product for all seasons and in all hues. The huge floppy hats enticed famous fashion designers such as Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent, and Chanel.

When To Wear A Floppy Hat?

“The hat is defined by the wearer’s personality combined with the hat itself.”

Some of the most prevalent sites for skin cancer diagnosis are on your head, including your face, scalp, and ears. So wearing a hat, especially one with UPF 50+ protection, is a no-brainer. The more difficult task is determining when it is most critical to have one on your head.

With that said, what are three other reasons to wear one:

  • On the beach tanning, and reading a book. Poolside or at the beach with your favorite book paired with a wide-brimmed hat, putting on some tanning lotion, soaking in some son for that darker tan is the perfect combination. Spend more time reading that trendy new best-seller and less time worrying about the weather.
  • To appreciate the great outdoors. This one is for those of you who enjoy camping in the woods and enjoying nature! If you’re the type of weekend warrior who joins every trekking club they can find, you’ll need a good sun hat and some long sleeves.
  • To dress in the perfect outfit. A well-styled hat is an underappreciated item of clothing that can tie the overall appearance together. There may never be a more pleasurable moment to wear a well-chosen wide-brimmed hat than during a Tennessee Derby party or festival!

Floppy hats are designed to not only protect your head and hair from the sun but also to complement your clothing and make you appear fantastic. So, when you browse for one online or at your favorite clothing store, you’ll probably want to know if it is still a trendy headpiece. Well, is it?

Are Floppy Hats Still In Fashion?

” What a hat is all about is how it makes you feel.”

Floppy hats are pretty popular all year round, which is fantastic since they are fashionable and functional. They keep the sun off your face, cover messed-up hair, and can take a “basic” look up a level.

Since the 1960s, floppy hats have left a footprint and remain a popular and easy choice for headgear for men and women.

An all-year-round fantastic color trend is a neutral hue with a timeless appearance that assures its adaptability by allowing you to mix and match it with other color separates. If you’re struggling to decide on a color, choose black, white, cream, or blue tones.

If you believe your sun hat is too plain, consider wrapping it with a bright ribbon. You may always go for a trendy, patterned scarf.

Speaking of colorful accents, you could be interested in embroidered patterns that appear elegant and would be appropriate for a more formal event than a beach party. If you still prefer a more colorful headpiece, I recommend an adorned design with a brightly colored or fun polka dot pattern.

There are various styles, so experiment around and discover which type you enjoy the most. You’ll only wear it if you adore it, and if you’re a little nervous about wearing this hat style in public, the poolside is a great place to try it on and relax.

Even better, if you don’t have access to a pool, wear one while sitting on your patio at home before deciding to wear it out in public.

Conclusion

If you’re new to floppy hats and decide that you should wear one, then wear it with pride! Floppy hats have proven to coexist with fashion trends throughout the years, and it does not seem to be leaving anytime soon. These hats are available in a wide range of styles and sizes to fit the occasion.

Fyodor’s dark brown soft hat with a stretch rim and unlined Tonak / Fur Felt /

Dark Brown Furfelt Crushable Fedora Hat with Stretch Sweatband and without Lining by Tonak

Article: 33017

Fedor’s classic travel hat from the oldest manufacturer of felt hats in Eastern Europe, heir to the hat traditions of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Czech factory Tonak .

Fedora appeared at the end of the 19th century, and began to gain popularity in the mid-1920s, and since the 1930s, the felt fedora is the main headdress of a city dweller and an integral part of the classic men’s wardrobe (along with classic tweed caps).

The hat is made of the best kind of felt – down ( furfelt ). It differs from ordinary wool felt ( woolfelt ), which is made of mixed wool fibers, that it is made of rabbit down with the addition of beaver and goat fur (the manufacturer keeps the percentage a secret).

Felt is thin and smooth, but if you look closely, you can see the down pile, which has a certain direction.

The fields on the head will have a slightly wavy shape.The hat itself can be folded and wrinkled without fear of ruining it – it is soft, and the felt is easy to give the original (or even a different) shape.

100% down felt with a stretch, breathable inner rim.

A bit of history

The history of the appearance of hats is associated with Ancient Egypt, the inhabitants of this country endowed them with mystical qualities.

In addition, the headdress symbolized the wealth and power of its wearer and protected the head from the sun in hot weather conditions. In the Thebes tomb of Egypt, for the first time, the image of a man in a straw hat in the form of a mural was recorded.

It is believed that the first brimmed hat appeared in ancient Greece, it was called “petasos”. In many Greek works of art, the god Hermes is depicted with a petasos that adorns his face.And since then, there is an opinion that it was from such a hat model as petasos that hats that are popular today went.

In the Middle Ages, hats emphasized the social status of their owners. All high-ranking people wore a pheasant or rooster feather on the crown of such a dress, and the guilty ones carried plucked carcasses of wild birds on it. Ladies wore hats adorned with furs, satin ribbons, and precious stones.

A hat is a headdress for men or women, consisting of a crown (the base of the hat that covers the head) and brims that go around the edges of the crown, usually retaining a stable shape.

The hat is worn for protection from the weather, but it often serves as a decorative function, being an integral accessory that complements the image.These hats are made from a variety of materials such as brocade, satin, drape, wool, velor, velvet, cotton, straw, polyester and others.

Selection criteria

The choice of a hat model depends on many factors.

So, for those with a round face, it is preferable to choose hats that open the upper part of the face, thereby making the face visually more elongated. But pill hats or bowler hats or other models of hats that tightly fit the head and cover the forehead will not work for chubby men and women.

On the other hand, those with an elongated face should avoid tall hats and other models that open their foreheads. For men and women with a square face, hats with a lowered brim will do, but they should avoid these straight-brimmed hats.

The hat should be matched to different parts of the wardrobe: under a coat, under gloves and a scarf, under a purse or boots. If the color scheme of the clothes is varied, then the hat should be selected based on the color scheme of the accessories.Hat size matters a lot. It should not slide off the head when tilted, and the crown should not be wider than the face.

FROM THE HISTORY OF HATS


The hat, like many other garments, was born for a purely practical purpose. So, in the south, only a hat with huge brim could save from the scorching rays of the sun.The first such hat was the Greek petatos, which, according to legend, was invented by the cunning god Hermes. It was a headdress with a crown and always with brim. In this it was convenient to travel in bad weather, and if there was no wind and rain, the petasos was thrown on its back, because it was suspended from a belt or ribbon. From him came all the stetsons, sombreros, panamas and other hats of the Old and New World.

The hat received its new purpose – decorative – during the Middle Ages.

Let’s take a closer look at the history of the hat.

In Ancient Egypt, the Pharaohs wore claft or nemes.

XIV – XV century

The high conical hat was invented by the Queen of France Isabella of Bavaria in 1395. This hat was named genin.

Straw hats were popular in Germany and France in the 15th-16th centuries. They were worn by both important persons and millet peasants.

In the Middle Ages, even during the time of Charlemagne, special customs appeared in wearing headdresses: worthy people wore pheasant and rooster feathers on their crown, and those who were fined wore plucked carcasses of forest birds.Green and yellow hats were supposed to wear bankrupts.

• XVI century wide-brimmed hats appeared from felt .

• 17th century – The hats were mainly used for decorative purposes, as, due to the fashion for complex and lush wigs, the hats were usually worn under the armpit .

First half. In the first half of the 17th century, the costumes of different European countries developed in different ways, although they had many common features.The beginning of the century was marked by several wars, so fashion borrowed heavily from uniform elements. Men in France wore felt hats with wide brims and round tops, reminiscent of military hats. The edges of the fields were raised and pinned to a crown decorated with ribbons, ostrich feathers, buckles of precious metals and stones. In particular, these hats were worn by the French musketeers.

• XVIII century

. In Europe during the Baroque era, ladies wore a fountain – a cap made of lace .

Second half. Headwear changed dramatically in the 1770s. The fashion of that time was set by the French queen Marie Antoinette. Special mechanisms were even mounted in the hats, which made the figures of birds or butterflies move.

• XIX century

In the early years of the century, Napoleon’s soldiers, returning from the Egyptian campaign, brought turbans of the defeated Mamelukes on the tips of their bayonets.Lord Byron glorified oriental exoticism and appeared in public wearing a turban. These hats have become popular again.

In 1797, the Englishman John Getterington invented the top hat. Headwear entered men’s fashion at the beginning of the 19th century.

Since 1820, the bolívar, a wide-brimmed cylinder, has become popular. In 1835, a folding top hat appeared.

Ladies in the first half of the 19th century continued to wear tokah hats, richly decorated with feathers, buckles and agraphs with precious stones.In the first half of the 19th century, a jester (schute) – a woman’s straw hat, similar to a cap, with wide brims framing the face, came into fashion.

Napoleon’s hat. Napoleon’s famous hat did not match the uniform of the French army and was a personal development of the emperor. A similar headdress was worn by the young Bonaparte, being a pupil of the Brienne military school at the end of the 18th century. The hat was made of black felt and was decorated only with a three-color cockade, fixed on a black silk braid.

During the period from March to December 1807, Napoleon had 12 hats, of which 8 were new and 4 were old refurbished. During campaigns or on marches, Napoleon wore a velvet cap, the prototype of the modern garrison cap.

Second half. By the second half of the century, women’s hats had almost lost their practical functions. The styles of hats changed rapidly. Fashion magazines offered up to 30 models each season. The reason for the appearance of a new style could be political events, funny incidents, new literary works or theatrical performances.

Headdresses were decorated with satin and gauze ribbons, silk flowers, ostrich and heron feathers, bouquets with a high vertical branch, garlands of leaves from the same fabric as the headdress.

In 1849, a men’s bowler hat appeared in England, more comfortable than bulky top hats. She became popular throughout Europe and did not go out of style until the First World War. From 1851 to 1867, during the era of the popularity of crinolines, women’s headdresses decreased in size.Ladies wore lace caps, turbans with feathers and jewels, girls wore small bibi hats made of silk or straw, decorated with flowers and ribbons.

In the second half of the 18th century, the pamela hat appeared, named after the heroine of the novel by the English writer Samuel Richardson “Pamela, or the Rewarded Virtue”. This model was decorated with wildflowers and ears of corn. The 1856 edition of Moda reported:

From the middle of the 19th century , ladies also began to master the men’s wardrobe: women’s silk top hats, straw boaters, and cowboy hats appeared.

In the second half of the 19th century, women’s hats of the “wagon” style with round brim were popular.

Then birds began to be used as decoration for hats. At the same time, hats were decorated with veils.

• XX century

1900 – 1910. At the beginning of the 20th century, in the Art Nouveau era, headdresses were magnificently decorated with flowers. Wide-brimmed hats that could fit Parma violets, camellias, pink bouquets in their fields came into fashion again. Bird stuffed animals were used in the decor.

At the end of the 1900s, the fashion for small hats, like a chicken head with a pheasant feather comb, spread. They were called “chauntecleer” after the title of the play by Edmond Rostand. The famous Gabrielle Chanel began her couturier career in 1909 with the opening of a hat-making studio.

At that time, an important detail was a hat pin – a pointed rod about 20 cm long with a head made of gold, precious stones, etc. Headdresses were attached to the hair with pins. Pins in crowds or on public transport could cause serious injury.

“… in 1912 in St. Petersburg and Moscow, the city administration, in order to avoid injuries to the population, prohibited ladies in hats with long pins from traveling in public transport.”
Ladies’ Journal, 1912

1910th. In 1910, “Ladies’ Leaf” wrote that feathers on hats of considerable length were the last peep of the season:

“The ladies adorned their hats with long feathers rushing towards the sky, making up the continuation of the whole figure. How will our ladies with similar decorations sit under the casing of the cab during the rain? This is a very interesting question. ”

1913 The dress of the new silhouette – narrow along the entire length – was now completed with a turban, a tok or a Scottish beret. Then currents of velvet, felt or leather, decorated with a feather or a bow, were relevant. In winter, ladies wore small round fur or felt curtains with or without a veil. By the middle of the decade, the veil had already begun to go out of fashion.

In the summer, the ladies continued to wear straw boaters.Evening hats often had an extravagant design, egrets and espres were in vogue.

1920s. The World War and the Revolution in Russia brought about changes in society, including fashion. Women were now more independent: many continued to work after the end of the war, girls studied at universities along with men, and also received the right to vote. Sports activities were popular at the time. A fit female figure began to be considered beautiful.At that time, cloche hat with narrow brims, which perfectly suited a haircut, was considered relevant.

1930s. The development of public transport and the financial crisis of the 30s finally removed bulky hats from the ladies’ wardrobe. The first half of the decade was the heyday of tokie hats. They were worn with veils, decorated with beaded accessories, small artificial flowers, colored feathers. Horsehair hats were especially fashionable.Also, women’s boaters have become popular again, but in a slightly modified form.

From the mid-30s, women gradually began to grow their hair again. Tyrolean hats came into fashion. Greta Garbo put on a pill-hat, after which this headdress also became relevant among ladies. The tablets were pinned to the head or placed on an elastic band. A flat hat appeared – a “dessert plate”.

In the 1930s, it was still indecent to appear in public without a headdress. In 1939, at the World’s Fair in New York, a time capsule was laid, which, among other items, contained a woman’s hat.

1940s. In the 40s and 50s of the XX century, designers made up for the lack of materials for the production of hats with their own inventiveness. Small hats with and without veils were made of curtains, straw, scraps of fabric, paper. During the war years in winter, women wore small hats shifted to the forehead, tied on top with a scarf or scarf, or deep hats made of soft felt with dropped brims. Shaggy felt with a long pile was popular.

The New Look style, which emerged in the late 1940s, brought wide-brimmed hats, in particular wheel hats, to fashion.

In 1942, in England, men’s hats were only allowed to be sold to bald customers, as due to the war, the supply of hats to the country was greatly reduced. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, a current called “tambourine” was fashionable.

1950s. A characteristic feature of the 50s fashion was the absence of grotesque, pretentious forms. Ladies wore straw hats, which, with the help of modern technology, were now dyed in different colors.The fair sex, tired of the dry outfits of the war years, strove for femininity. Miniature hats, which were worn in all seasons, were popular. Among men, fedora hats were the most relevant.

1960s. Thanks to Jacqueline Kennedy, pill hats became fashionable in the 1960s. Also relevant were small hats with oblique brims, decorated with brooches, massive pins with stones or soft bows made of the same material as the headdress. Ladies’ headdresses were often decorated with a veil.The fashion for hats at that time was largely set by the actress Audrey Hepburn.

1970s. In the late 1960s, with the proliferation of personal cars and crisp haircuts, hats began to fall out of the wardrobe for women and men. However, in the Soviet Union, hats were most popular precisely in the 70s.

1980s. Since 1980, currents from velor, velvet, felt have become relevant, although hats were no longer popular in this decade. Princess Diana revived some interest in them.

1990s. In the last decade of the twentieth century, the original designer hats of Philip Tracy became famous, who was later three times recognized by the British Fashion Council as the best designer of accessories.

“It’s not about completely changing your appearance, hats are supposed to help you become more attractive.”
Philip Tracy

Famous hats

Based on the history of hats, on the fact that each era “wore” characteristic hats, directors, writers, artists created images with the help of hats.We recognize these images by their hats. Here is some of them.

Well-known Mary Poppins, Baron Münghausen, Charlie Chaplin, the Hatter, Jack Sparrow, Michael Jackson and the Queen of England.

Hats and caps – Everything is in our hands! Therefore, they cannot be omitted! – LJ

I bought a new hat, while I was looking for what it needed to be sewn in accordance with the image, I found interesting articles about hats and their varieties. Maybe someone else will be interested in reading, I share.

FROM THE HISTORY OF HATS

The hat, like many other garments, was born for a purely practical purpose.So, in the south, only a hat with huge brim could save from the scorching rays of the sun. The first such hat was the Greek petatos, which, according to legend, was invented by the cunning god Hermes. It was a headdress with a crown and always with brim. In this it was convenient to travel in bad weather, and if there was no wind and rain, the petasos was thrown on its back, because it was suspended from a belt or ribbon. From him came all the stetsons, sombreros, panamas and other hats of the Old and New World.

The hat received its new purpose – decorative – during the Middle Ages.The choice of styles of hats became really great, they began to be decorated with plumes (bunches of feathers), fur, ribbons and jewelry. The most popular headdress in Europe was considered to be a long-tail hood called a chaperone. It was worn by people of all classes, and the richer a person was, the longer was the “tail” of the chaperone.

The genin, a tall cone-shaped headdress, was also a classic headdress of that time. It is believed that the genin was invented and brought into fashion in 1395 by Isabella of Bavaria.Only a hundred years later, it disappeared from secular clothing, but it did not cease to exist at all, Masons began to wear it. The frame for the princess genin was 3 feet (about 1 m) high, the courtiers had genin up to 2 feet (about 60 cm). The frame was made of hard paper or starched linen and covered with silk or other expensive fabrics. A transparent veil descended from the back of the genin. She often covered her face. All loose hair was shaved, there was only a small triangle in the middle of the forehead.The genin were of such height that sometimes it was necessary to additionally cut through the doors. Later, geniuses took on the shape of a crescent or two-sided.

In the 18th century (called the Gallant), the place of hats was successfully replaced by huge powdered wigs. To make them more comfortable to wear, secular beauties even shaved baldly.

In the 19th century, a real Renaissance began in the art of hat. The hat has become almost the main item of women’s dress. This is the definition given to her by V. Dal: “… a female visiting headdress, which type and names change every day.”Indeed, at that time, one fashionable style was rapidly replaced by another (sometimes up to 30 models per season). It was the hat that created the image of the Beautiful Lady – delicate, airy, graceful, sophisticated.

The styles were very diverse: a cap tightly fitting to the head with many laces and ribbons; a tiny female bibi hat; a turban adorned with jewels and a feather; a straw hat with mantonnieres under the playful name “Jester’s nest”; the crimson beret, popular among Russian fashionistas, in which, by the way, Tatyana Larina shone at the ball…. You can’t list everything.

Political events, funny incidents, new theatrical performances or novels could be the reason for the creation of a new hat. The “Romeo” hat was indicative of a passion for Shakespeare, and the “Francis” – a good knowledge of French history. Ladies in boxes could decorate hats with feathers of any size, which was not allowed for ladies in the stalls. At the same time, this indicated the financial situation of the lady.

The hat became an integral part of the look of any woman and meant that the girl or lady was educated and knew the rules of secular etiquette.It was then that the rules were developed that allow a woman not to take off her hat indoors. After all, some hats, intended for a ball or dinner, were made under the supervision of a hairdresser and literally woven into the hair.

The beginning of the 20th century was the dawn of Art Nouveau, and the road to the new century was strewn with flowers. Flowers were everywhere: on the facades of houses, on furniture, on dresses, in hairstyles and, of course, on hats. Wide-brimmed hats came into fashion, which could fit flowers and flowers in their fields: Parma violets, camellias, pink bouquets. The hats resembled flower beds, and sometimes strange cages with birds of paradise, whose stuffed animals were used in decoration. Of course, this beauty was heavy, but fashion dictated its own laws. Supporters of a simpler, more practical fashion managed to get out of the situation in the following way – they decorated boater-like hats with a scattering of forget-me-nots or a rose bud, as well as everything that grows in meadows and fields near cities.

However, already in 1909-1911 the fields of women’s hats became much narrower and curved upward in a strange way, not a trace remained of the former flower beds, only the veil held its position.

The war of 1914 mothballed fashion, and sometimes brought to naught attempts to renew women’s wardrobe. Everything became simpler, including the hats, only modest ribbons and feathers remained on them.

World War and Revolution contributed to certain shifts in society, including fashion. The rights of women are expanding, which immediately affects their appearance. Now the woman looks businesslike and youthful, she does not need the help of a man. It does not need to be protected and cherished, it is no longer a greenhouse plant or a flower of paradise.Freedom is expensive, the most valuable thing is sacrificed to it – curls and curls.

For the first time in history, a woman refuses the symbol of femininity – she cuts her hair. The hat has become tight-fitting with little or no brim. The “cloche” hat, shaped like a bell, has become very fashionable.

Until the mid-30s, any self-respecting young lady had several similar hats in her wardrobe, which were modestly decorated, but with amazing taste. The laconic form was emphasized by small veils, graceful beaded jewelry, colored feathers, and sometimes small artificial flowers.

Hair gradually grows back, you need to leave space for them, the game begins with the fields. Small fields fall into bizarre shapes, gradually moving to one – the right side.

Since the mid-30s, independence and emancipation have lost their relevance. The hair is branching, the skirts have lengthened, the waist has finally taken its place – femininity and grace are back in fashion. But there is also a place for sensations: in 1933, one Italian – oh horror! – pulled a woolen sock over the beautiful head of the fashion model! The reaction to this was the appearance of a huge number of all kinds of knitted hats and hats, with which the boaters that returned from history immediately began to compete.The usual form of the boater changes, only the material remains – straw, from which amazing masterpieces are woven by the hands of real craftsmen.

Hats are knitted and weaved from everything that can be knitted and weaved. Fishnet horsehair hats are especially popular. Jewelry again comes to the fore, but now it is veils, laces and pom-poms. Gradually, the hats become narrow and straight, Tyrolean hats come into fashion, pill-caps appear – very tiny, so they need to be fixed with a dozen pins or, which is much more practical, put on an elastic band. Women of fashion, and especially young ladies of a sporty style, do not shy away from hats with funny names – one of them, completely flat, is called a “dessert plate”.

They wear everything: fantastic berets, “pots”, “pills”, jockey caps. Toilets are being replaced at a rapid pace, and each has its own headdress. Business, weekend, sports hats, cocktail hats, horse races, visiting elderly relatives, shopping on weekends. Hats for tiny fashionistas, for serious young ladies, for respectable ladies.
An example of a special headdress is a gymnasium hat, which, being an example of severity, made it clear about the serious intentions of its owner. It is impossible to study science in a frivolous goose feather beret. To appear in public without a headdress is the height of indecency.

During the war years, the “calm” period begins again. At this time, hats were characterized by two options: small hats shifted to the forehead, which were also worn in extreme cold, with a scarf or a warm scarf tied on top, or deep hats with overhanging wide brim; they, as a rule, were made of soft felt, sometimes this felt had a rather long pile, it was then called “shaggy”. The most common headdress at this time was the headscarf. War is war.

The new bow that appeared in the late 1940s brought large hats.

In the 50s, perhaps one of the most feminine images of 20th century fashion ruled. Women, tired of the masculine and dry outfits of the war years, strove to be fragile and feminine. Miniature hats, tiny handbags and gloves were very popular. They are worn everywhere and in all seasons.

In the 60s, the so-called “revision” of the style of the 30s is taking place.Small hats with oblique brims, which were usually decorated with soft bows made of the same material as the hat, are in fashion. The veil, which has long lost its direct purpose, now serves exclusively for decorative purposes. Usually, due to its softness, it was velvet; such hats of women of fashion could be decorated with massive pins with semi-precious stones, brooches of various shapes. From that time, charming pill hats, so beloved by Jacqueline Kennedy and amazing Audrey Hepburn hats, remained in my memory.

The main hats of women in the 70s – a small adorable beret, a hat with wide brim and a scarf.

In the 80s, hats were rarely worn: it was difficult to put a hat on such a fleece. The 90s can be called the heyday of sports baseball caps. It seemed that the time of the hats was over. However, the 21st century came, and interest in the hat returned.

TYPES AND FACILITIES OF HATS

Fedora is a hat made of soft felt, once entwined with a ribbon. It got its name after the premiere of the sensational play of the same name by Victorian Sardou in 1882, written especially for Sarah Bernhardt.Sarah, in fact, became the founder of a new style – her fans quickly caught the trend in an unusual headdress and began to wear fedoras both day and evening. Fedora is also sometimes called “snap brim” (“broken brim”), because the back of the brim of this hat is usually wrung up, and the front is lowered over the eyes for mystery. On the crown of a classic fedora, three dents are supposed: on the right, on the left, at the top – for three fingers. A modern fedora may look somewhat different: its margins can now be shorter, and the material can be anything (tweed, suede, leather, etc.).etc., not just felt). Actually, the use of this hat has become much wider: today women’s fedora is no less popular than men’s, and you can wear it with almost any women’s clothing. In 2012, Fedora is one of the hits in hat fashion. She looks great with trench coats and formal coats. Also, this hat will go well with any “men’s” clothing: pantsuits, jackets, shirts. Fedora can be interesting to complement a little black dress, but it is advisable to also wear tight tights and high heels.Gloves, glasses, scarves – these are accessories that can often perfectly complement a fedora and emphasize a certain image.

Trilby – a kind of fedora with shorter and sharper margins – appeared twenty years later and, most notably, also after the play based on the novel by George Du Maurier “Trilby” presented to the court of London theatergoers. racing hat (not in the sense of jumping, but watching others jump.) A classic trilby should be brown and its crown should have a significant dent in the front.Once she was the darling of the English aristocracy, then went to the people. From London dandies to the Italian unemployed. Today she is very popular among Hollywood macho – Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Justin Timberlake and Brad Pitt often adorn her weekend outfits. Musicians love her very much, especially rappers and hip-hoppers. Trilby used to be only a man’s hat, but now it is worn by women too. But if men have trilby (like fedora) mostly black and brown, then women are allowed to show imagination in the color presentation of the hat – today trilby beige, orange, yellow and red are especially fashionable, in a word, the most summer and bright.The soft and pliable trilby hat looks great with both casual jeans and a bright floor-length sundress. A straw hat will add a rustic flirtation to a city outfit, and a more glamorous hat with a satin ribbon will be a winning addition to an evening dress. A special chic is to combine the color on the ribbon with the main color of the outfit – then the headdress becomes a full-fledged participant in the output composition.

Stetson – a cowboy hat, the same classic one, with a high concave crown and wide, dashingly curved up brim.We see her in Hollywood films about the conquest of the Wild West, in illustrations for historical novels and, of course, in the windows of “cowboy” shops. Its inventor is John Stetson. According to popular legend, he made his first felt hat by hand while hunting just for a joke, but it was appreciated by his friends – and this is not surprising, because it perfectly protected its owner from wind, rain and sun, and at the same time looked good. In 1865, Stetson founded his own company, which is still known throughout the world.The cowboy hat is very popular with women. Of course, the main elements of a wardrobe, always matching a cowboy hat, are jeans, as well as leather pants, jackets and boots. This is a traditional combination. However, fashion has long ceased to adhere to strict rules. And now the cowboy hat goes well with shorts, especially ultrashorts, tops, sandals, skirts, dresses and sundresses.

Tablet is a small round or oval cap with no brim.Attached to the hair with a hairpin or elastic. Often supplemented with a veil or artificial flowers, which should be beneficial to set off the color of the wearer’s eyes. The pill became fashionable in the thirties. And, according to rumors, it was created especially for Greta Garbo. Jackie Kennedy loved large “pills” that looked more like cookie boxes. Along with gloves, the president’s wife introduced them into the fashionable use of the elite.

Cloche – a miniature women’s headdress, shaped like a bell (from the French cloche).The creator of this hat was the French designer Caroline Rebaud. They were very popular in the 1920s, as they were in perfect harmony with the then fashionable short haircuts. In 2012, the fashion for such hats returned, they are in many fashion collections. Cloche hats are traditionally made of felt, have narrow brims that can be slightly tucked in, and a narrow ribbon. The functionality of such a hat is obvious: it covers the head and warms well – if it is made of natural materials.

Bibi is the general name for miniature women’s hats that complement evening or cocktail dresses. One of the main features of such a hat is its extremely small size, due to which such a headdress looks more like a hair accessory. They are attached to the hair with hairpins slightly to the side. All kinds of decorations are typical for evening and cocktail hats – it can be a short veil, feathers, satin ribbons or lace, beads. Such a hat can become an adornment of a complex evening hairstyle, and just loose hair.

Slouch is an elegant, medium-sized felt hat with a low crown and curved brims, which appeared in the 30s of the XX century. The famous fashionista of those years Greta Garbo was very fond of wearing it. The native name of this hat “slouch” rarely appears in designer shows, although the hat itself is a frequent guest in the collections of leading couturiers. It is recommended to wear it with dark-colored raincoats and coats, adding a dark scarf to the neck.

Boater ́ (fr. Canotier – rower) – a hard, straw, round hat, originally for men, with narrow straight brim, a low flat crown and a wide black ribbon.It came into vogue at the beginning of the 20th century: it was worn by men at cricket matches, picnics, boat trips. With the light hand of Coco Chanel, women began to wear it. It is now found as a sun hat in both men and women.
In England, it is the uniform hat of the students of some private schools. John Galiano dressed his models in straw boater hats at the spring-summer 2012 show. According to the designer, such a retro hat in a classic white and black design should be worn with romantic dresses and elegant suits.

Panama – a light hat with brim for sun protection. Its history is connected with the construction of the Panama Canal. For workers and employees, the company purchased a large batch of straw hats from Ecuador. Since then, this name has been stuck with them – “Panama”. And in Ecuador itself they are known as “sombrero de paja toquilla”, which in Spanish means “a hat made of toquilla cane straw.” And the most difficult thing in making it is to evenly and thinly cut the strips from the reed stalks.Then these strips are dyed, dried, and only after that they can be woven – this, according to local artisans, is the simplest and fastest thing to do. The canal builders liked Panama so much that they took it with them to their homeland – to the States and to Europe. Panama fashion spread instantly. It was especially relevant for the British, unaccustomed to direct sunlight. A real panama is extremely comfortable to wear – it is light, you can wrinkle it, twist it, put it in your pocket, wash it, because when it straightens up, it immediately takes its previous shape. And what is the secret, it is difficult to say – is it a property of toquilla reed or is there some secret of the craft that Ecuadorian craftsmen pass on from grandfather to grandson for many centuries?

Now the name “Panama” is used for summer cloth hats with soft brim. They are very comfortable. Lightweight, good air permeability (sometimes, for better ventilation, small holes are made in the crown, framed by metal or plastic rims). Thanks to the small fields, the Panama is not bulky, but at the same time protects the head, face and neck from the sun.It can be folded up and stowed away in your pocket, bag or backpack. Cotton panamas are easy to wash. Panama is worn by people of all ages – from little kids to grandparents.

Bowler hat / Coke / Derby
Traditionally man’s hat made of felt. The bowler hat has a low crown-hemisphere. Once the bowler hat was replaced by a less comfortable top hat, and then it was replaced by soft felt hats. Now the bowler hat has lost its gender identity, but it still suits many. The main thing is to know what to wear it with.

Homburg
Hat made of felt with a notch along the rather high crown, wide ribbon and curved brim. Homburg is known mainly for the fact that these hats were worn by many gangsters – the heroes of The Godfather. Although politicians also often preferred the Homburg to other types of hats.

Cylinder
The most popular type of hat in the century before last is a tall one with a flat top and small brim. The inconvenience of socks is not a reason to refuse such a beautiful outwardly headdress: clogs with wooden soles or ankle boots with hooves did not immediately take root in the wardrobe either.Throw, in the end, not an unbridled party in the “oldest T-shirts”, but an evening party for exclusively respected and loved people, or organize a natural circus, with magic tricks and the participation of pets.

And there are also the most unimaginable hats

Most of the fancy hats can be seen at the royal races

Do you wear hats? Which ones? and with what? .))

Men’s trilby and fedora hats for women

Hats sometimes complete the image, and sometimes change its mood. The hat is capable of many things – it can protect you, straighten your shoulders, raise your head. You can be admired with a hat, they give you personality.

“In my opinion, the woman in the hat cannot be forgotten.” – Sophia Loren. But the main thing is that you wear them with confidence. And this is especially true for men’s hats, which are very popular today.

All variants of men’s hats are good, and they are equally good with a suit or with a simple dress.

For example, Fedor’s hat. This hat is usually made of soft felt and tied once with a ribbon. There are three dents on the crown. The fields are so soft that they can be raised and lowered and thus reshaped.Fedora first appeared in the late 80s of the 19th century, and got its name from the operetta that was popular in those years. For some time, following the example of Sarah Bernhardt, women began to wear a hat, but somehow interest in it then quickly faded away.

The hat became popular among men at the beginning of the twentieth century, and this is due to the Hollywood films of the 40s, in which these hats were especially fond of both private detectives and criminals. There was a gangster style. The Great Depression provoked crime, the era of gangsters began, who, especially in films, looked like elegant men in suits and strict hats.

In reality, many men wore a hat. This hat required observance of the rules of etiquette. For example, when a gentleman, seeing a lady, wanted to show her respect, he raised his hat above his head with three fingers, while his fingers were to be in one of the “hollows” on the crown. Usually the hat was worn, wringing the brim upward, lowered in front, low over the eyes.

In the 60s, the hat went out of fashion for a long time. And only in the 80s they remembered about her, not only male models appeared, but also female ones.Then the popularity of the hat increased thanks to the films about Indiana Jones.

Today Fedor’s hat is more popular with women than ever. And fedoras are made not only from felt, but also from leather, tweed, suede, straw. And John Galliano, in his latest collection for Christian Dior, offered a hat made of velvet in rich colors. Over the past ten years, Fedor’s hat has been regularly shown in the collections of various brands. Therefore, if the warm season comes, choose a straw fedora, if the cool autumn one – from tweed.

Fedora will suit both loose long hair and short hair. What does Fedora go with better? The best option is classic. This is a coat that can be long or short, as well as a trench coat or three-piece suit. The hat goes well with a shirt and jacket, with a thin tight-fitting jumper. As for the lower part of the clothes, various options are good here – and a short skirt, and tight trousers, and even shorts. High heels throughout the outfit will add expressiveness and femininity.

There is another man’s hat that is popular with women. This is a trilby hat.

Trilby is the heroine of the novel by George Du Maurier, who has nothing to do with this hat. The hat, however, became very popular after the release of the film of the same name, not only among the bohemians and aristocracy, but also among middle-class men.

The trilby hat is often confused with the fedora, as it also has elegant dents on the top and sides. Thanks to its shape, it suits many. In addition, the hat fits snugly on the head and does not allow the wind to carry it away, which is why trilby can often be seen at English races.

It is this hat, along with Fedora, that creates a unique style. Many designers recommend it. Modern trilby can be not only felt, but also straw, and shades – not only brown. The hat can be worn with jeans, a skirt, and even beach shorts. It can be said that it is a hat that is very adaptable not only to a variety of sets, but also to images.

The history of the hat | Novosti.Info – news portal

The word “hat” is translated from German as “a headdress that retains a stable shape.”It consists of a bottom, a crown and a field. For the manufacture of hats, straws, felt, cloth, leather, fur, fabrics, etc. are used. Due to the variation in the size of the crown, brim and bottom, there are many styles of hats. Nowadays, any man’s hat can be a woman’s.

Ancient World

The hat, like many other garments, was born for a purely practical purpose. So, in the south, only a hat with huge brim could save from the scorching rays of the sun. The first such hat was the Greek petatos , which, according to legend, was invented by the cunning god Hermes. It was a headdress with a crown and always with brim. In such it was convenient to travel in bad weather, and if there was no wind and rain, the petatos was thrown on its back, since it was suspended from a belt or ribbon. From him came all the stetsons, sombreros, panamas and other hats of the Old and New World.

The ancient Greeks and Romans did not wear headdresses in everyday life (as evidenced by numerous images), but they still existed in their culture. Basically in Ancient Greece, hats were not used as decoration, but during work.People covered their heads with wide-brimmed hats during field work to protect them from the sun’s rays. Craftsmen and sailors wore special felt caps called pilos . Often the head was decorated with a wreath, and this or that set of plants in each product testified to a certain type of activity of its owner. It is also not uncommon for women to cover their heads with just a piece of cloth.

Medieval hats

The hat received its new purpose – decorative – during the Middle Ages. At this time, the choice of styles, colors and decorations for hats was really great. Headdresses were worn by both men and women. The choice of styles of hats became really great, they began to be decorated with plumes (bunches of feathers), fur, ribbons and jewelry.

The most popular headdress in Europe was considered to be a hood with a long tail called chaperone . It was worn by people of all classes, and the richer a person was, the longer was the “tail” of the chaperone.

Headdresses also determined the type of activity of the wearer.A doctor, for example, wore a beret, a theologian or scientist wore a small black cap, and a notary wore a beaver cap.

Chaperon

Married women were simply required to cover their heads. They hid their hair under special headbands or hats. Unmarried girls could walk with loose, uncovered hair, weaving flowers into it.

At the time of Napoleon, men’s cocked hats came into fashion, which soon became an element of military uniform. Often, hats were decorated with feathers, fur and precious stones, embroidered with gold threads, testifying to the wealth of the owner or mistress.

A classic headdress of that time was genin – a high cone-shaped headdress. It is believed that the genin was invented and brought into fashion in 1395 by Isabella of Bavaria. Only a hundred years later, it disappeared from secular clothing, but it did not cease to exist altogether – Masons began to wear it. The frame for the princess genin was 3 feet (about 1 m) high, the courtiers had genin up to 2 feet (about 60 cm). The frame was made of hard paper or starched linen and covered with silk or other expensive fabrics.A transparent veil descended from the back of the genin. She often covered her face. All loose hair was shaved, there was only a small triangle in the middle of the forehead. The genin were of such height that sometimes it was necessary to additionally cut through the doors. Later, the genin took on the shape of a crescent or two-sided.

In the 18th century (called the Gallant), the place of hats was successfully replaced by huge powdered wigs. To make them more comfortable to wear, secular beauties even shaved baldly.

Genin

Nineteenth century

In the 19th century, a real Renaissance began in the art of hat.The hat has become almost the main item of women’s dress. This is the definition given to her by V. Dal: “… a female visiting headdress, which type and names change every day.” Indeed, at that time, one fashionable style was rapidly replaced by another (sometimes up to 30 models per season). It was the hat that created the image of the Beautiful Lady – delicate, airy, graceful, sophisticated.

The styles were of the most varied: a cap tightly fitting to the head with many laces and ribbons; a tiny female bibi hat; a turban adorned with jewels and a feather; a straw hat with mantonnieres under the playful name “Jester’s nest”; a raspberry beret popular among Russian fashionistas, in which, by the way, Tatyana Larina shone at the ball . …You can’t list everything.

“Jester’s Nest”

The reason for the creation of a new hat could be political events, funny incidents, new theatrical performances or novels. The “Romeo” hat was indicative of a passion for Shakespeare, and the “Francis” – a good knowledge of French history. Ladies in boxes could decorate hats with feathers of any size, which was not allowed for ladies in the stalls. At the same time, this indicated the financial situation of the lady.

The hat became an integral part of the appearance of any woman and meant that a girl or lady was educated and knew the rules of secular etiquette.It was then that the rules were developed that allow a woman not to take off her hat indoors. After all, some hats, intended for a ball or dinner, were made under the supervision of a hairdresser and literally woven into the hair.

Hats at the beginning of XX century

The beginning of the 20th century was the dawn of modernity, and the road to the new century was strewn with flowers. Flowers were everywhere: on the facades of houses, on furniture, on dresses, in hairstyles and, of course, on hats. Wide-brimmed hats came into fashion, which could fit flowers and flowers in their fields: Parma violets, camellias, pink bouquets.The hats resembled flower beds, and sometimes strange cages with birds of paradise, whose stuffed animals were used in decoration. Of course, this beauty was heavy, but fashion dictated its own laws. Supporters of a simpler, more practical fashion managed to get out of the situation in the following way – they decorated boater-like hats with a scattering of forget-me-nots or a rose bud, as well as with everything that grows in meadows and fields near cities.

However, already in 1909-1911, the fields of women’s hats became much narrower and curved upward in a strange way, not a trace remained of the former flower beds, only the veil held its position.

Impact of World War I

The war of 1914 conserved fashion, and sometimes brought to naught attempts to update women’s wardrobe. Everything became simpler, including the hats, only modest ribbons and feathers remained on them.

World War and Revolution contributed to certain shifts in society, including fashion. The rights of women are expanding, which immediately affects their appearance. Now the woman looks businesslike and youthful, she does not need the help of a man.It does not need to be protected and cherished, it is no longer a greenhouse plant or a flower of paradise. Freedom is expensive, the most valuable thing is sacrificed to it – curls and curls.

For the first time in history, a woman refuses the symbol of femininity – she cuts her hair. The hat has become tight-fitting with little or no brim. The hat “ cloche “, which is shaped like a bell, has become very fashionable.

Until the mid-30s, any self-respecting young lady had several similar hats in her wardrobe, which were modestly decorated, but with amazing taste.The laconic form was emphasized by small veils, graceful beaded jewelry, colored feathers, and sometimes small artificial flowers.

Hair gradually grows back, you need to leave space for them, the game begins with the fields. Small fields fall into bizarre shapes, gradually moving to one – the right side.

Return of femininity and knitted hats

Since the mid-30s, independence and emancipation have lost their relevance. The hair is branching, the skirts have lengthened, the waist has finally taken its place – femininity and grace are back in fashion.But there is also a place for sensations: in 1933, one Italian – oh horror! – pulled a woolen sock over the beautiful head of the fashion model! The reaction to this was the appearance of a huge number of all kinds of knitted hats and hats, with which the boater hats that returned from the history of instantly began to compete. The usual form of the boater changes, only the material remains – straw, from which amazing masterpieces are woven by the hands of true craftsmen.

Hats are knitted and weaved from everything that can be knitted and weaved. Fishnet horsehair hats are especially popular. Jewelry again comes to the fore, but now it is veils, laces and pom-poms. Gradually, the hats become narrow and straight, Tyrolean hats come into fashion, pill-caps appear – very tiny, so they need to be fixed with a dozen pins or, which is much more practical, put on an elastic band. Women of fashion, and especially young ladies of a sporty style, do not shy away from hats with funny names – one of them, completely flat, is called a “dessert plate”.

They wear everything: fantastic berets, “pots”, “pills”, jockey caps. Toilets are being replaced at a rapid pace, and each has its own headdress. Business, weekend, sports hats, cocktail hats, horse races, visiting elderly relatives, shopping on weekends. Hats for tiny fashionistas, for serious young ladies, for respectable ladies.

An example of a special headdress is gymnasium hat , which, being an example of severity, made it clear about the serious intentions of its owner. It is impossible to study science in a frivolous goose feather beret. To appear in public without a headdress is the height of indecency.

Hats from the Second World War and post-war times

During the war years, the “calm” period begins again. At this time, hats were characterized by two options: small hats shifted to the forehead, which were also worn in extreme cold, with a scarf or a warm scarf tied on top, or deep hats with overhanging wide brim; they, as a rule, were made of soft felt, sometimes this felt had a rather long pile, it was then called “shaggy”.The most common headdress at this time was the headscarf. War is war.

The new bow that appeared in the late 1940s brought large hats.

In the 50s, perhaps one of the most feminine images of 20th century fashion ruled. Women, tired of the masculine and dry outfits of the war years, strove to be fragile and feminine. Miniature hats, tiny handbags and gloves were very popular. They are worn everywhere and in all seasons.

Fashionable hats of the late XX century

In the 60s, the so-called “revision” of the style of the 30s is taking place.Small hats with oblique brims, which were usually decorated with soft bows made of the same material as the hat, are in fashion. The veil, which has long lost its direct purpose, now serves exclusively for decorative purposes. Usually, due to its softness, it was velvet; such hats of women of fashion could be decorated with massive pins with semi-precious stones, brooches of various shapes. From that time, charming pill hats, so beloved by Jacqueline Kennedy and amazing Audrey Hepburn hats, remained in my memory.

The main hats of women in the 70s – a small adorable beret, a hat with wide brim and a scarf.

90,000 Varieties of fashionable women’s hats: their history and features

If initially hats performed only one function – to cover the head from the scorching sun and other climatic inconveniences, today they are an indispensable element of the image: for going to the races, or on the beach, an original accessory that will emphasize the outfit of a fashionista or a stylish man.

More than once throughout the history of the hat, it was considered a real must-have, without which a decent lady or gentleman could not go out into the street. Without a hat, the military had no right to appear before their superiors – this was a bad form that could serve as a turning point in their career. It was the brim of the hat that pushed over, hiding the eyes from passers-by. It was they who were raised when meeting with acquaintances or crumpled awkwardly, being in confusion.

Even during the life of Coco Chanel, women went to special hat boutiques, purchasing several accessories at the same time. Fashionistas could have about a hundred different hats in their wardrobe, each of which was perfect for a particular outfit. It was the headdresses that caused the unbridled envy of girlfriends, it was from under the veil that the beauties cast passionate glances at men or made confessions that did not require unnecessary words.

As Rhett Butler said, if a woman doesn’t know how to put on a fancy hat, then things are really bad. Moreover, the question of choosing a headdress is relevant to this day. In recent years, the fashion for hats has begun to gradually return.These accessories have become much more popular than, for example, in the 80s of the XX century. How to choose a stylish accessory? First you need to understand their varieties. Next, I will list exactly the fashionable women’s hats that are relevant today.

Fedora

The real queen of hats is fedora. Today, on the streets of many cities, you can meet girls in such headdresses. Perhaps this is the only model that did not go out of fashion throughout almost its entire existence.

Fedora – a hat made of soft felt, once entwined with a ribbon. The fields are soft and can be raised and lowered. There are three dents on the crown. It was invented in the late 1880s, named after the operetta popular in those years. Usually worn by men, but there are hat options for women

There is usually a satin ribbon or buckle around the crown. Fedora is often made of felt, but modern designers produce hat collections using various accessories.

The brand under which the most famous fedora hats are produced is, without a doubt, the Italian Borsalino. More details can be found in this article.

A prime example: Indiana Jones and Michael Jackson.

Panama

Hat similar to Fedor in outline – Panama hat. The name came about after hats of this kind were given to workers at the construction of the Panama Canal. Construction work has been completed, the canal is operational, the hat is still in vogue.

What is the main difference from Fedora? The traditional Panama was made from straw, now it is also made from recycled paper. A ribbon is made around the crown or a scarf is tied.

A prime example: Madonna and Sean Connery.

Trilby

Trilby is another trendy hat. Trilby became a trend in the early 60s of the last century. Then they were worn exclusively by representatives of the stronger sex.At this time in the United States, many moved to strong convertibles, trilby turned out to be the most convenient type of hat: narrow brims did not interfere with the view, and a tight fit allowed the headdress to be held on the head in the wind. Trilby moved into women’s fashion from jazz musicians.

Today these hats can be seen on both men and women. Trilby differs from fedora in that it has a taller and more pointed crown, and narrow, usually curved upward brim (at least in the back).A ribbon or leather strip is tied around the crown. The material used for the manufacture can be absolutely anything: felt, wool, straw, paper, leather, thick cotton.

The trilby hat was a traditional accessory for visitors to English horse races. The brown model was worn with a classic tweed suit.

Today, the trilby hat is hardly used as an addition to a formal suit. Now such a headdress is appropriate with a youthful look.

A prime example: Frank Sinatra and Kate Moss.

Floppy hat

There are a lot of varieties of wide-brimmed hats. It can be a beach version made of dyed or natural straw, as well as an exquisite hat for going to the theater or ballet, or it can be a soft felt model with wavy brim (quite popular in the 70-80s of the last century). Any material for creating a hat.

A prime example: Marilyn Monroe and Vanessa Hudgens.

Cloche / Cloche

Cloche is a bell-shaped lady’s hat that was in vogue in the 1920s. The name comes from the French word cloche. Also, this headdress is also called a flapper hat.

Cloche is a miniature, brimless hat that fits snugly around the head and covers the ears. The main material is felt (for the winter season) and straw (for going to the beach). Closhees are becoming fashionable again.

A striking example of this headdress is the image of Angelina Jolie in the film “Change”.

The bowler hat was considered an ultra-fashionable accessory in the last century, and an exclusively masculine accessory. Headdresses of this type were created from felt, with a round crown (as a result of which the hat got its name) and narrow brims. Today bowlers can again be seen on the streets of various cities. Only one thing has changed – now it is worn mainly by girls.

A prime example: Charlie Chaplin.
