Cautiously still in shoulder season – sticking to classic tones and sizes – these can still be called Spring hats. The very special one at left on Marlene would have accompanied a particular suit or frock. Hats used to be so creative and capable, if carefully selected, of making a stunningly good impression!
The navy wool hat at right on Celia is the perfect one to wear with an early Spring coat in a coordinating tone. It is simply a classic wardrobe staple and warming when the weather is cool.
Nothing picked up the spirits like a new hat. It seems that women loved them even more than new shoes! Well, I can understand that, because around your face and shoulders the right hat can make you look absolutely beautiful . . . . . .
