1930's Ladies Hats
Hat styles in the 1930's were some of the most diverse and wildest in history! The beginning of the decade saw an evolution of cloche styles carrying over from the 1920's, with Off-The-Face brims featured in the early 1930's. By 1932 the Eugenie hat was all the rage with everyone wanting to look like Greta Garbo. Indeed what Movie Stars wore was copied by many women at that time, from hats to gowns, to footwear! Hat styles in the 1930's became much more focussed on silhouette and by the end of the decade, with WWII approaching, decorations took a backseat to shape. Hat shapes varied widely and height, along with whimsy, became important at the end of the decade. Some of the shapes towards the end of the decade drew on examples from history and versions from the1650's, 1870's, !880's and early 1900's could be seen - many without the trims used in earlier times.
