Style Glossary: For Whom the Cloche Tolls

Greetings fashion fanatics! Its Tuesday, and you know what that means – Style Glossary! This week, Cloche is the word. If you stroll as many street style sites as I do, I’m sure you’ve noticed that hats are back! And as the style slave that I am, vintage-inspired hats have taken over my shopping cart.

French for “bell”, a cloche hat is characterized by a deep crown, with a narrow brim or no brim at all, and fits the head closely. It was first made popular in the 1920s and is usually worn with the brim below the eyebrows, almost over the eyes. Our Changeling Hat is a fun, fall-ready way to get the look.

Are you a fan of the hat revolution? How do you wear them? Thanks for reading ModLovers, and happy shopping!

    I did a similar post on my blog!

    They’re so lovely…great for a bad hair day perhaps? :)

    I LOVE cloche hats. Unfortunately they don’t look good on me for some reason. I can’t quite pin-point it though.

    Cloche hats are cute, but I am just NOT a hat person. Hats NEVER look good on me under any circumstances. Oh well.

    I have several cloche hats from when I had a bobbed haircut. Unfortunately, they just don’t seem to have the same charm with longer hair.
