    Niece on my sister's side. We get her gift certificates at a shop in Stratford, Ontario called The Green Room, with many vintage inspired items.

    She was 19 at that time, approaching 21 now. Hair is a bit shorter and now her natural brunette, but otherwise much the same!

    Here's my idea of a beautiful woman in a hat:



    She's a German entertainer but she looks so Southern to me in her appearance, in spite of her dirndl. She's Bavarian, which at least is Southern German. The man's hat looks pretty good, too. I always have to explain that I grew up listening to yodeling, only it wasn't that good. She's about 31 in the video.
     
  3. When I was young many women wore hats, particularly to church. There was a huge variety from small and conservative to huge and flamboyant. Easter Sunday in particular was a practical hat parade with light and vivid colors. As the years go by I see less and less of this. Now it seems showy to wear such a hat because no one else is. I remember every Easter I got a new spring suit to wear and my sisters received new spring dresses and matching hats. This has died out in my community, and I suspect it isn't doing well in most areas. It seems that the tradition is doing better in African American communities where both men and women still dress with some panache.

    As to liking women in hats: my wife in a large brimmed floppy straw hat puttering in the garden is always alluring to me.

    Absolutely, but I also like the small fascinator when worn as an accessory. In the sixties I couldn't take to the ladies jockey caps yet now I really warm to them.

    Everyone looks better in a hat, For men it covers their bald spot. For women it gives them an air of mystery or allure. Ladies, think Film Noir.

    It depends on the hat.

    As a woman I appreciate beautiful hats.:) Love them!

    For the rest of hats I don't care so much.
