From boaters to facinators, from cloches to birdcages — millinery is the focus of this installment of Style Glossary!
Millinery is design, crafting, and sale of (you guessed it) hats! I felt this word was particularly on topic, as headwear from our Nicole Fascinator to our Fashion Fractal Hat have been making waves across the style world!
The origin of the word is unclear, but it is thought that it came from the word “Milener” as in a resident of Milan, a capitol of fashion in Europe.
Does your wardrobe involve a healthy collection of millinery, or are you waiting for the perfect hat to find its way to you?
