Last fall/winter I was absolutely obsessed with the cloche hat. I don’t even usually wear hats, but the 1920′s flapper reference and flattering style was just too intriguing to pass up. I love the more modern cloche hats that designers have been sending down the runway lately that are more structured than the vintage floppy style. Angelina Jolie sported numerous gorgeous cloche hats in the movie “The Changeling” that I am very jealous of.
As the weather begins to warm up, I am happy to see the cloche make an appearance as a spring/summer hat this year as well! The materials and embellishments are lighter than the winter versions.
I love this relaxed woven straw cloche in lilac with a black grosgrain bow. available at Urban Outfitters for $34. This style can be dressed up with a colorful floral Easter dress or dressed down with cut-offs and a cotton tank.
