First came the fedora, now the cloche hat is the must-have accessory to tame unruly locks.
This hat became popular in the 1920s and is characterized by a rounded top and slightly floppy, short brim.
Although it has fallen in and out of fashion over the years, it’s back and more stylish than ever.
The vintage, glam cloche hat pairs perfectly with menswear clothing such as trouser pants and oxford shoes.
For a more feminine take, wear a cloche with a longer dress and a soft, angora cardigan.
The hat is a show-stopper, so no matter what you wear it with you are sure to be the talk of the town.
