Current Obsession: The 20's Cloche Hat

I've got quite a weakness for hats and haberdashery! Up until now, I've always thought of hats as a casual, throw-it-on-when-you're-lazy kind of accessory, but these gorgeous 20's style hats and cloches by Yellow Field 7 have me thinking that the fancy cocktail hat needs to make a comeback!







And just look at these dashing vintage ladies, sleek and oh-so-gamine in their cloches...

I was just looking at these hats on Etsy the other day! The one at the top is my favorite. Wish it wasn't so expensive.

I saw a woman wearing a cute felt cloche hat like the ones pictured at the top at a bar recently. She was wearing it with a great simple purple dress and gold necklace.

These are beautiful! I agree with you that hats need to make a comeback.

i share your love of haberdashery, but alas am cursed with a giant head that makes every hat appear as though it were a beanie. perhaps i could have an extra large hat custom made.

lovely photos!

Cloche hats are my favourite kind! Something about them always look so elegant, yet kind of playful at the same time. I need to start using mine more often, though it isn't half as smart as some of those in your post. People should wear hats more often - I think it would make society more polite, don't you?
