Thursday, 19 May 2011

Pillbox HatToday hat appears to act a stylish accessory to complement the image and apart from summertime when sunshades are greatly used to protect hair from the sun, women today tend to wear various hats to complement the image. Hats vary from occasion to occasion, from pompous decorated ones styled as of 19th century fashion to the simplest ones, economical enough, as the pillbox hat. The pretentious models of hats are mostly used to wear for carnivals and costume parties while the pillbox hat is quite comfortable accessory to afford. The hat became popular thanks to the noble person and thus, today, many years later, it keeps the initial status in spite of all time changes.

For the long time such a pillbox hat was the part of the military uniform. Men had to wear the hat with the strap under the chin because of the specific structure of the headwear which did not allow fixing on the head freely. A version of hat for women was made without any straps. The elegant hat was fastened with the help of tiny hairpins and therefore, people had to enjoy the perfect style of the person with the hat with nobleness attribute to it.

Military model and accessory of high society

The First Lady of USA Jacqueline Kennedy was the first to introduce the pillbox hat. During the 60s she was radiant with the beauty and youth next to her famous spouse wearing elegant A-shaped costumes with refined and tiny headwear to match the ensembles. Oleg Kassini, the French designer, contributed to adapt the pillbox hat too her thoroughly considered wardrobe. His high class style and influence of Jacqueline’s style to wide public made a revolutionary turn in views of point to elegance and delicacy with the innovative but simple secret.

A hat was the close attribute to women’s ensemble for many centuries being complicated in design at the very beginning and getting simpler with the lapse of time. Later it was decorated with plenty of details as it was during 20s and 30s of the 20th century. A new pillbox hat is indecently simple, smooth and straight-line as an ordinary pill with no functional practice at all. It is an accessory like a hair clip and detail to the dress.

Such a pillbox hat was used fifty years ago offered in various styles though today the models of pillbox hat are even more than ever. The hat has the advantage to be too laconic to make a woman graceful, elegant, aristocratic adding some special luster to her image. And a woman is free to experiment at her own discretion wearing a tiny hat straight on the back of the head, moving it slightly to the side. The models come as simple to complicated structures decorated with the veil, decorative bows and ribbons.

Stylish models for today

Quite a smooth sleek hairdo has been compulsory for such pillbox hats to look appropriate. Even during the 60s when the puffy Babette was highly popular, the rule was observed firmly. A simple hat risked disappearing with the complicated hairdo with lots of locks whereas it just adorned the glossy sleekness of loose or picked up hair. Today the requirements to modeling are not that strict and brides with curls or loose tousled hair are not rare to appear at wedding events wearing pillbox hats different from the preliminary design. This is quite logical; it the honor to the trend, its challenges and thirst for experiments sought by fashion ladies.

Wedding event or society function and cocktail parties come as the appropriate cases to decorate the head with such a delicate accessory. It is trimmed with the veil and decorative flowers, and on the whole a pillbox hat is more rigid and delicate. The fashion designers have not invented something new preferring going back to fashion history to experience the romantic style of the early 20th century. Winter 2010-2011 collections demonstrated pillbox hats and several seasons’ military style is in favor while the rigid tiny hats are inclined to the side as much as possible.

The industry of holidays and other events especially when it refers to wedding parties offers the models of pillbox hats with the veil, trimmed with satin, silk, decorative flowers. And the fashion show of Spring-Summer 20111 by Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Priscilla of Boston just prove the trend for pillbox hats for coming seasons.
