December to Remember: Wide Brim Hat

Hats continue to show up on the fashion runways. Wide brim styles are prevalent and so now! We love this gorgeous example from the 1950's from VFG member Tangerine Boutique.

THE most unique and stunning ladies fedora style hat!
The era for this one is the early 1950s. It was created from a wonderful and unusual tweed felt. The felt has a mohair feel. The base color is slate blue and it is shot with black and tan "tufts" giving it a tweed appearance. The brim is generous measuring nearly 14" across. The crown is 4 1/2" high and rounded. It has a wide gross grain head band and double bow off to the side. The ribbon matches the hat color and is decoratively top stitched in multiple colored threads. The brim is shaped to dip down over the right eye. You know, that "Lady of Mystery" kind of thing.
