The 1920’s-related cloche hat is back! It’s as stylish as it is warm and most of the fashion-conscious celebrities know it. Kelly Osbourne, Fergie, Victoria Beckham and Leighton Meester have probably looked for inspiration in Clint Eastwood’s movie – The Changeling where Angelina Jolie plays a grief-stricken mother.
With the wearer’s eyes only slightly below the brim, a vintage cloche hat saves from bad hair days. In the past it was most typically worn with cropped hair (so called eton crop popularised by Josephine Baker) so that hair didn’t show. It also became fashionable to turn the brims on cloche hats upwards. Did you know that different styles of ribbons affixed to the hats indicated the wearer’s marital status?
Today it’s fully acceptable to wear a cloche hat to the long hair and with different elements like feathers, ribbons and rhinestones. For a very en vogue winter style choose a wool brimless cloche or an asymmetrical one that features side slant brim. Cloche hat is a staple accessory that every lady must have so you’d better learn to wear it from Sarah Jessica Parker and Blair Waldorf!
