hats first appeared in the late 1800s, when it was a popular women’s hat. In the 1920s it became a popular men’s hat as well. Now floppy
hats are a popular hat choice for men and women. Not only are fedoras popular for their design, but they are also useful in their ability to protect women from the cold and wind. Women’s floppy
hats were classically made of felt, though now they are made with other materials as well. Floppy crowns can be pinched in the front, with several variations on this base style.
Ladies floppy hats are useful to protect from the weather, as their thick and sturdy material can cut through the wind. With the different material types, there is a floppy hat for any occasion. Felt ladies floppy hats are the best for winter and windy conditions. Straw and linen floppy hats are more at home for summer occasions, such as BBQ and beach parties. Ladies floppy hats also come in several colors and decorations. Ribbon and buckles are common additions to floppy hats. Feathers and gemstones are added to some floppy hats for a dressier look. The mix of materials and decorations means that for any occasion and any outfit, a floppy hat can be added to a ladies ensemble.
