Hats for Halloween Costumes
From Fun and Funky Hats to Historical Hats
Humans have covered their heads since the beginning of time. Initially headwear offered protection from the elements; later they became a symbol of status and authority. Today, not only are hats still worn for protection and social status, but they have become an art form all their own. Social events such as the Royal Wedding and the Kentucky Derby have once again brought the fashionable world of hats to the forefront with style and flair.
In fashion terms, hats are a very important accessory because the onlooker’s attention is first drawn to the face. A hat is the most noticeable fashion item any person can wear. They’re an instrument of charm and elegance showcasing a person’s personality as well as their individuality.
Etiquette and formality have always played a part in hat wearing. At the turn of the 20th century, both men and women changed their hats depending on their activity. For many ladies of a higher social standing, it would be several times a day. In those days, it was considered a disgraceful act to venture out of the house without wearing a hat.
