Hello darlings! Today is Wednesday Vintage here on Vili Flik, and I would like to talk to you about hats. A good hat is like a good pair of shoes, it can really put the umph in an outfit. And like shoes, hats come in all shapes and sizes, not to mention colours.
Now who wouldn’t want one of these?
Not to mention this one:
It was not until the 16th century that women began using hats, up until then women wore veils, kerchiefs, hoods, caps and wimples. Men however have been depicted wearing hats since the beginning of civilisation. Why oh why did they stop?
In all societies hats have been used to show status and wealth, both within government, the military and privately.
It is not until the last 60 years that western women stopped covering their hair in public, for reason that remains unknown considering all the beautiful hats they could have been wearing, and we here on Vili Flik are on a mission to bring back the hat.
What are your feelings towards this versatile fashion-piece?
