WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF VINTAGE-INSPIRED WOMEN’S HATS AND ACCESSORIES? Well, that depends on what era of fashion you feel like channeling today:

  • 40’s Hats and Hair Accessories: In the 1940's fedora hats, pill box hats, darling fascinators, and wide-brimmed hats with bows or flowers were perfect for keeping the sun out of a fashionista's eyes. Floral headbands, embellished hair combs, and hair clips with flowers also kept a neatly stylish updo looking feminine and fashionable.
  • 50’s Hats and Hair Accessories: Rockabilly style began influencing fashion in the 1950’s, and this is the era when gold-toned and gem-encrusted hair combs were a formal occasion must-have. For more casual looks, stylish hair scarfs, and wearing bandanas as headbands became all the rage. Polka dot headbands, headbands with top knots, turban style headbands also hit the fashion scene in the 1950's. 
  • 60’s Hats and Hair Accessories: In the 1960’s, all manners of floppy, wide-brimmed sun hats became mainstream! Mod styles introduced newsboy hats into popular women's fashion, and French berets also surged in popularity in America. 
  • 70’s Hats and Hair Accessories: Slouchy fisherman caps, floppy wool hats, and corduroy caps came into fashion in the 1970's. This is also the era when boho-chic hippy hats with ultra wide brims, groovy floral, or playful paisley prints became popular. In the 1970's, women's haircuts got really short to better showcase oversized hoop earrings, and wide headbands became a ultra-long hair scarfs, hair accessories with feathers and beads also suited the times. Braided headbands, velvet headbands, hair clips with funky daisy motifs also filled the disco dance floors.
  • 80’s Hats and Hair Accessories: Lace headbands, and especially black lace headbands (thank you, Madonna) were all the rage in the 1980's. The first scrunchies came onto the scene and were perfect for the era's trademark high ponytails, side ponies, and messy top knots. Barrettes with oversized bows definitely define 80's fashion culture, and the claw hair clip was an absolute must-have. Berets, bucket hats, and visors also made the list of favorite headgear during this iconic fashion era.
  • 90’s Hats and Hair Accessories: Bucket hats, slouchy beanies, denim bucket hats with floral appliques (think Blossom), and baseball caps go mainstream in the 1990's! Vibrant acrylic hair clips, butterfly clips, claw clips, and scrunchies of all colors and sizes overflowed from vanity drawers, and cowboy hats moved beyond the Southwest into mainstream fashion.
