It's been a while since I did a good Downton Abbey post. So it's about time for one! I've warmed considerably towards 20s fashions lately. And I adore hats so hat's it is today.
I've always adored the cute 20s close fitting cloche hats. I think that they are flattering on just about anyone.
Plus they tend to be rather easy to find in modern reproductions. You can always retrim a store bought hat to look more period or to match your outfit.
And, of course, a bob goes perfectly with a cloche!
Don't have short hair? Never fear! Plenty of ladies faked the fashionably bob by pulling their hair into a low bun at the back of the neck. Wear with or without fingerwaves for a smashing 20s look!
While wool cloches were rather popular, straw ones are perfect for summer.
Don't be afraid of fabulous trims! A multicolored ribbon on a neutral colored hat will go with so many outfits.
Neutrals like black or dark red will go with many different outfits. The idea of a pop of color is not new.
Go with a matching hat for a classically put together look too!
Do you have a favorite hat from season 5?
