Women’s 1930s hats were small and simple in decoration, yet their shaping was a work of art. Folded, molded, and angled felt made hats look like something out of a Picasso painting. A small belt, bow or brooch was the only ornament on most women’s ’30s hats. The cloche had remained common into the 1930s but now had a rolled brim. In summer, a small straw plate hat or very large straw picture hat, some with fabric coverings, were in style. In winter knit berets, scarves and turbans kept heads warm and fashionable.
