Know your hats

There are dozens of types of hats. Their popularity changes over the years. For instance, bowler hats were once a common sight across the country, but not are now relegated to 1920s movies.

Here is a short spotters guide to the hats you are most likely to see 'in the wild' today:


Baseball Cap 

The modern baseball cap was born in the 1940s, with materials that helped stiff the hat. It has become more structured through the years and can be found in other styles, such as snapback, adjustable, fitted, and “Flexfit” hat.


Beret 

This soft hat became a thing in France and Spain in the 19th century. It is believed that they started to be worn by the Minoans, Etruscans, and Romans, also becoming popular among the nobility and artists across Europe. Although nowadays berets are part of French people’s stereotypical image, this hat was once considered France’s national cap, and till this day, it is used while celebrating traditional events.


Beanie 

A knit cap, commonly known as a beanie, provides warmth in cold weather. In the 18th century, it was widely used by seamen, anglers, hunters, and people working outdoors.


Bucket Hat

A bucket hat (variations of which include the fisherman's hat, Irish country hat and session hat) is a hat with a wide, downward-sloping brim.


Western Hat

The cowboy hat is a high-crowned, wide-brimmed hat best known as the defining piece of attire for the North American cowboy. Today it is worn by many people, and is particularly associated with ranch workers in the western and southern United States, western Canada and northern Mexico

Fedora 

The fedora hat appeared around 1891, and its name comes from Fédora, a play by the French author Victorien Sardou and starred by Sarah Bernhardt. The actress played Princess Fédora Romanov. The character popularized the use of a center-creased, soft brimmed hat. The accessory was so fashionable for women that it became popular and a symbol of the women’s rights movement.


Boater 

Boater hats were popularized in the late 19th century and early 20th century and were designed especially for men. However, designers transformed the style for women and created a softer version with the approximate shape.


Visor 

The visor cap is a crownless hat designed to cover and protect only the face from the sun. This headgear is a staple in outdoor sports, such as golf, tennis, volleyball, and softball.


Floppy

Hat Commonly known as a floppy hat, harvest hat, or field hat, the sun hat appeared to shade the face and shoulders from the sun.
