Cloche & Flapper Hats
hats, are chic ladies hats reminiscent of the 1920s. Due to its bell shape, the cloche
hats are named from the French word meaning “bell.” The unique shape means cloche hats fit snugly on the head and have a short brim so as not to cover the eyes. Cloche hats are made for both cold and warm seasons, so they are made in straw and felt. The straw hats are ideal for summer styles, as they are lightweight and breathable.
These ladies hats shield from UV rays without overheating the wearer. Women's cloche felt hats are perfect for cold weather as they are stylish as well as warm and securely cover ladies ears. The snug fit can also help keep hair in place for those blustery days. Some of these hats are plain, and rely on their unique shape for their decoration. Other women's cloche hats have a single ribbon along the base of the crown, perhaps with a bow or buckle. Still others have many beads, lace, and brooches covering the cap to create an ornate and sophisticated ladies hat. For any season and any type of event, there is sure to be an appropriate cloche or flapper style hat.
