Women in the Roaring 20′s did not leave the house without a hat or some type of head covering. There were many types of hats, the garden hat, the Musketeer hat, the Beret hats, toque hats, turbans and the 1920’s hat icon, the cloche. These round shaped, snug fitting, helmet like felt or straw hats came so far down the forehead that visibility was only possible by lifting the chin up so she had to look down on people.
Brims were a mere 2 inches at most. Some curled up, some angled out like a mini visor, and still others pointed down. By the end of the decade brims were non existent.
