Royal crowns, Felt top hats, Leprechaun hats, Derby hats and Tiaras! Hats and headwear come in a wide variety of styles and serve many purposes. Some types of hats are designed for the sole purpose of making a fashion statement or to silently proclaim some level of power, authority or level of success. Crowns throughout the ages have usually been associated with royalty or nobility. The first crowns were actually ornate helmets that were designed for use by various English kings. The look of the crown eventually came to be associated with Kings. Crowns very frequently are ornate and inlaid with various precious stones or jewels. Tiaras used to be called Diadems and have been worn for thousands of years by those of royal descent. Even in Ancient Egypt and Greece, Diadems were commonly worn by those of nobility or were part of the dress worn by various gods noted in mythology. In ancient days, men most commonly wore Diadems. Nowadays, the Tiara is considered primarily a female accessory. Still associated with Royalty, the Tiara has also been used by women for very special occasions such as proms or weddings. The Top Hat, also known as a Chimney Pot or Stove Pipe hat, was popular and stylish in the latter part of the 18th century until the mid 20th century. These hats are rarely worn today unless someone is trying to make a very specific fashion statement or is recreating a period character. The Top Hat will always be associated with wealth and privilege as well as represent an upper class look from days gone by.
