1920s Rolled Brim Vintage Hats
The 1920s fashion scene experienced a craze for fabric hats, with silk, felt and velour dominating the market. The vinage hats often featured brilliant colors with drooping shapes, trimmed in unusual ways. Popular color combinations for millinery creations were citron and white, flesh and robin’s egg blue, iris and beaver, orange and white, jade and flesh, light blue and iris. This youthful styled 1920s hat, often referred to as a “sports” hat, features a rolled brim faced with bright orange velour. It was intended to be worn low on the forehead, with the wearer's eyes only slightly below the brim. Soft hats with a rolling brim were very becoming and were marketed to young women. They were also easy to make and patterns were offered in fashion magazines such as The Delineator (see design 3665 below).
