Cloche Hats

Sleek, sophisticated and steeped in yesteryear chic, cloche hats have become a classic of women’s millinery. It’s their timeless beauty that has enabled them to transcend the caprices of fashion to offer millinery aplomb for over 100 years. While these fitted, bell-shaped hats have held a soigné fashion presence since their creation by milliner Caroline Reboux in 1908, and certainly reigned supreme during their heyday from 1922-1933, they have taken on a life of their own in recent years. Moreover, it’s a decidedly stylish life.

In fact, style is part of the appeal of the cloche, buoying its resurgence. This is in no small measure due to the popular influence of shows like “Downton Abbey.” With its exquisite period fashions, including cloche-style hats, it marvelously evokes the best of what designers of the era had to offer. Then, proffering the vintage charm of 1920s Australia, there is the intrepid Miss Fisher, detective extraordinaire. Her penchant for glamour extends to lavishly embellished cloches, an indulgence shared by other female characters in the eponymous television production of “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.” Indeed, even “Gossip Girls” has been a style catalyst among contemporary women, with Leighton Meester’s character, Blair Waldorf, resplendent in cloches of all kinds.

Wherever the influences may have been derived, cloches are unequivocally among the hats of choice for fashionistas. That’s why, anywhere you shop, you are likely to find a variety of cloche hats for sale. What’s more, this wide array in types of cloche hats means that women who have an affinity for this design as well as those who simply enjoy expanding their hat collections, will find cloches to suit their every whim.
