Thirties  • Small Hat with motif

In fashion about 1932 to 1936
The thirties woman wore this hat over their permed hair, tilted back to show their face which they could now adorned with make-up.

The first few years of this decade came under the influence of the cloche hat and the coalscuttle hat which followed.

Whatever style the thirties hat was small close fitting and worn at a jaunty angle.
Usually it was decorated with a metal feature on the front crown.

The look, as in the case of the slightly later beret, was not complete without a turned up collar.
