A journey of Hats!

You're probably getting tired of us gushing about fall but we're too excited, to the point where we want to bottle up our excitement and sell it! We think fall fashion is fun, and a great way to pair different pieces in your wardrobe. 

When you think fall fashion, you probably think of coats, scarves, boots, sweaters, hats, hats and more hats! They make a great statement piece and add a jaunty look that's perfect for bad hair days or not so bad hair days.

 Let us take you on a journey of hats from the 1920s-1960s. 

1920s, Cloche:
This bell shaped hat was invented in 1908 by a Parisian milliner, Caroline Reboux. Cloche  is the french word for bell and became popular in the 1920's.

1930s, Slouch:
This hat is also known as the gabro hat, named after Greta Garbo, who was an iconic Hollywood star during the silent and classic periods. It's a wide brim hat usually made out of felt. It was generally worn with police or military uniforms and can be turned on both sides or one side. 

1940s, Fedora 
A formal hat usually worn by men but have been worn by women in recent decades. It has a tapered crown lengthwise and are made of felt or straw. They became popular in films of the 1940s. 

1950s, Lampshade 
A hat with a medium or tall round crown with a brim that flares outward about the ears. This hat was worn by Audrey Hepburn in the 1957 movie Funny Face.

1960s Pillbox
It has a flat crown with straight upward sides and has no brim. Jackie O introduced the pillbox hat in the 60s and made it an iconic piece.
