Fashion Vintage: Fabulous Hats...

A definite symbol of a bygone era, the hat remains a vintage fashion necessity. Whether you are out for a stroll, window shopping, or visiting with good friends, it's always the perfect addition to top off your outfit. Hopefully, this collection of photos of lovely vintage hats will serve as inspiration...because every vintage woman-wannabe knows that it's the required accessory for every outfit.

How lovely! The dainty chapeau from 1938 is my favorite, though were I to don one of these styles, I'd likely choose one of the berets from 1952.

Best,
Carrie

Oh, I just love vintage hats!

That is one thing especially in particular from the "old" days I wish was still worn!

Jane Ellen said...

Oh, how lovely! My friends and I often wish that donning hats and gloves before going out was still a common (and expected) practice.

Thanks for sharing!

I wear hats - in the past I've had pretty extravagant hats - not so much now - I am getting too old to want to draw attention to myself...I wish hats like these were the thing...these are so much fun - I like nearly all of them.

I absolutely love hats! I've always wished they would come back in style in a big way. Here I think I like the first and fourth pictures the best.

Oh my, this is so hard.... I think I would have to say my favorite one is the 1st pic. from 1950....that checkered dress is just too adorable and the gloves as well!! ;) Thanks for reminding me of the importance of beautiful hats...I hope to dawn one in the near future.

I wish we lived in a world where women still wore hats like this, and where a man wasn't considered properly dressed in the workaday public without a snappy Fedora on. I never knew that world, but it seems like it would be fun to inhabit.

These pictures are great! You always find the cutest pictures :) I love seeing hats on other people, but have yet to find one that suits me… :/

What a lovely collection.

But I'm afraid I was paying more attention to the sweaters and coats.

Where has all the hat appreciation gone??? the only hats we see now are baseball caps (which i do love) and winter hats. People should really start using them to complete outfits again.
(P.S. u should follow my blog. We have a common favorite movie It's A Wonderful Life)
