THE HAT THAT MADE FASHION HISTORY! If you’re a fan of “Downton Abbey,” “The Great Gatsby” and other period dramas, you probably already know that the women’s cloche hat has long been a millinery sensation. Invented by the French hat maker Caroline Reboux in 1908, the women’s cloche hat immediately became a style sensation among the top couturiers of Paris, for its flattering, bell-like shape and the way it showcases the eyes of the wearer.
More than a hundred years later, the women’s cloche hat is still making waves in the fashion world for its flattering style. Today, the women’s cloche hat comes in many different materials—including the classic fitted felt cloche, ideal for any time of year; the winter-appropriate faux fur; and the straw women’s cloche hat, a charming addition to your summer travel wardrobe.
At Hatcountry, we carry all these styles of women’s cloche hat -- and more! Our women’s cloche hats are available in a wide range of colors, and several styles of women’s cloche hat feature added detailing, such as a buckle or classic grosgrain ribbon.
