If you want to get ahead – get a hat, so the old saying goes. Apparently the saying is an old advertising pun, used by Dunn and Co in the 1940s. In those days everyone wore hats. In the 60s my father still wore a Trilby. He looked very smart. Old women still wore hat’s, middle-aged one wore rollers in their hair with a scarf tied over them. In fact head scarves were worn by a lot of women in their late 20s and thirties – usually housewives. Having a bad hair day? why not wear this hat from Nagi Noda. How bad does your hair have to be ? great creative fun though
The only time you saw outrageous hats was at Ascot but now they can be seen all the year-round. I must confess to have never have seen a really outrageous hat in life (apart from the odd Easter Bonnet competition) and they are still doing it! This looks like an oversize bendy curler – I wonder if it does bend?
I rather like this horsy hat. It was actually worn at Ascot. There are some fabulous Ascot hats here. It’s a wonder anyone watches the horses at all – the hats are very diverting and attention grabbing.
As for this one – why swap one bad habit for another, that’s what I say!
