The Fascination with Hats

The fascination with hats goes back centuries.

Hats have an interesting history

The world’s fascination with hats has a long and interesting history, dating back to 3200 B.C.

Hats…the great wardrobe accessory

There is probably no other accessory that offers as many characteristics as the simple hat. 

This is likely because there are so many styles from which to choose, as well as a virtually limitless number of practical reasons to wear this fun and attractive accessory.

The Fascinator hat has a resurgence

A type of hat currently making headlines is the fascinator, as it has become a favorite of women in England’s Royal family, such as Kate Middleton and her sister Pippa. However, the fascinator hat has been around since the 1770s. 

It also enjoyed a very popular season as recently as the 1960s. This style has  now resurged as a popular favorite since 2011, and is one of the most sought after hats on today’s market. 

Contemporary Fascinator hats serve many occasions

Somewhat larger than a barrette, contemporary fascinators are typically made with flowers, feathers, or beads, and must be attached to the hair by a clip, headband, comb or specially made fastener. 

They make excellent cocktail hats, and can complement essentially any formal outfit or trendy ensemble you create.

Interestingly, no one has to spend a fortune to acquire an attractive hat, as there are many reasonably priced styles available. 

Simple and timeless hats remain popular

However, you may also decide to try a simple fedora hat or a timeless classic, such as the pillbox hat made famous by Jackie Kennedy or even a boater or trilby

Let your imagination soar when choosing a hat

Ultimately, the choices are limited only by your imagination, so consider adding a few different hats styles to your wardrobe arsenal this season to ensure you turn heads wherever you go.
