In the past, hats were an indicator of social status. By the 1920s, when women began to cut their hair short, they chose hats that hugged the head like a helmet. The 1920s in Western fashion saw a modernization. For women, fashion had continued to change away from the extravagant and restrictive styles. The straight-line chemise topped by the close-fitting cloche hat became the uniform of the day. Women “bobbed”, or cut, their hair short to fit under the popular hats.
The bob hairstyle matched perfectly with the loose and straight silhouette of the times. During this era, Vogue gave credit to this new cut for the immense success of the hat business. New haircuts meant new styled hats, therefore there was a new craze for hats.
The cloche hat and the bob were made for each other. it certainly wasn’t the only women’s 1920s hat style. Even today this craze has not decreased even an ounce. More designs and styles have come into the market for women. According to women, these hats add class, smartness, decency, and loyalty to their look.
