Throwback Thursday: Glamorous 20th Century Hats

There is nothing more glamorous than a beautiful chapeau on an elegant lady… her soft curls peeking out from under a lovely brim that frames her face. Here are a few reminders of the times prior to the 1980’s, when women knew how to wear a hat as a proper accessory to their outfit. The 1980’s brought the introduction of the miserable pork pie hat (made famous by singers like Debbie Gibson) and the oh-so-wrong backwards baseball cap… which served only to deteriorate the refined feminine fashion plate to a more androgynous, tomboy-esque image. I’d like to think Downton Abbey and The Great Gatsby are helping us remember that it is not only acceptable, but quite stylish to don a striking hat on an every day basis.

Enjoy!

Love,
Lady Grey
