A brief history
A long time ago, hats were worn to protect oneself from injuries, such as rocks or natural elements. Soon it developed into symbols of beauty and status of authority making head coverings become a fashion as it is the first thing that will catch someone’s eyes. Since 1700, hats have existed in France and Britain. During that period it was considered disgraceful for a lady, whatever her status, rich or poor, to go out without a hat.
Are Hats Important to wear
In certain weather conditions it is important to cover the head as some body heat is lost through the head. Head covering is mostly important for babies in particular, as they lose heat rapidly through the head. A baby or toddler should have a warm covered head in winter.
The Disintegration of Hat Wearing
As the years went by, hats lost their allure. Very few ladies wore them for weddings and to attend the church.
Hats for Special Occasions
Hats became popular again in the 1980s for weddings and special occasions.
Hats are worn today for a special dressy occasion such as a wedding or for a special event. Fashion designers are working hard to make hats become the joie de vivre in modern fashion.
