1920s hats - daytime
Hats a 1920s girl might wear to luncheon, tea or work. Usually straw, felt or fabric with non-metallic trims. Hats often had wide brims up until about 1922 and lots of decoration including ribbonwork and feathers. Often have small frontal brims from 1922-1925, and longer, asymmetrical brims from 1926, or no brim. Over time, decoration becomes minimalistic, often made of self fabric. Hats in this period are usually molded from a hood so that the crown is seamless. The exception is fabric hats.

A classic 1920s black felt deep cloche vintage hat with a loosely woven crown made from a heavy black yarn like fibre and metallic thread. The crown is very stretchy and airy from the very open weave, a rather unique style that has that wonderfully deep shape the covers up much of the face
1920s Flapper era hat. Frilly and feminine, made of (faux) horsehair "lace" braid w straw braid woven through in lovely designs. The cloche hugs the head very close, and the beautiful draped ruffled brim hides the face and creates a sort of "windblown" effect. This is what was often called a "transparent" hat as it was almost see-through.
Lovely wide brim hat from the early to mid-1920s is fashioned of cream silk, with a soft, deep cloche crown. Tagal straw braid facing stiffens the underbrim, which is slightly wider at the sides than in front and back. The hat is trimmed in front with a charming silk and charmeuse flower with charmeuse-wrapped wire "stem" and three petals. Lined in cream silk satin, the hat has no label but has been stamped "The Greenwich Sport Shop, 95 E. Putnam Ave Greenwich Conn"
This peach silk and lace covered cloche is a magnificent example of an early Art Deco fashion. With a Paris and New York label, it is unusual as the brim is made from finely hand-woven straw, which remains in superb, supple, mint condition. Although straw was a more predominate medium during the mid-20s, the slightly droopy brim silhouette dates this hat to circa 1920-21
