More Photos: Ladies Vintage Inspired Styles

As you've probably noticed by now, most of our styles are at least somewhat vintage-inspired. But the following hat styles were made with authentic vintage blocks from the 1930s through the 1950s. The shapes of these styles are often more complex and interesting than more modern hat styles, so we're happy to share new photos with you from a variety of angles so you can get a better idea of what they look like.

Our late 1930s / early 1940s-inspired 'Inga' is on-trend with the current fashion for big-brimmed, floppy hats, yet has a bit more structure and cleaner lines than your average hippie hat. This soft ladies hat is made from lush fur felt, self-trimmed with top-stitched felt band, mother of pearl buckle, and a hand-curled feather. The brim is wide (about 13" in diameter), with a jaunty flip up at the back, providing lots of sun protection in front. The shape is like something a film noir femme fatale would wear, down over the eyes for a mysterious look, but casual enough for daywear. Comes fitted with a ribbon sweatband.

Available in silver gray.

Or in deep amethyst.

The 'Inga' also looks fabulous in black!

The 'Pixel' is a cute 1950s-inspired style, similar to the Pixie hats that were popular at the time. This hat is made from fur felt and vintage veiling, with a hand-shaped crown and a rolled cuff brim. The veiling is held in place with small silver vintage hat pins; hat pins may vary slightly from hat to hat. Due to the hand-shaping of the crown, each hat will look slightly different and be a one-of-a-kind item. Comes fitted with a ribbon sweatband.

Available in a sunny golden yellow, trimmed with berry colored veiling.

Or in deep lipstick red with peacock teal veiling.

All of these styles and more are for sale now in our Etsy shop.

Other color combinations are available. Interested in discussing a custom piece? Contact us for more info.
