Women's Hatwear 1912

---

 

This extremely wide-brimmed style of hat originated probably in tropical climates and served somewhat the same purpose as a parasol - i.e., to keep the sun off the face. Not until WW II was tanning considered fashionable for women, and a pale or very fair complexion was considered the mark of a lady of quality. But by the time of this photo, the practicality of broad brimmed hats was of less concern than the striking appearance it gave a lady. You couldn't help noticing a woman in such a hat - rather a bold style. The ribbon around the crown might be brightly colored also to add even more to the spectacle. In any case the ribbon, even if just black, would add contrast.

The style with the up-turned brim might be referred to as "off the face" style. It is not clearly visible if the hat is made of some fabric rather than straw. But we think that straw off-the-face hats were worn also.
