Cloche Hats

Looking for a hat that’s demure yet quite eye-catching? The cloche hat is the perfect choice for you. At Hats in the Belfry, we have an excellent selection of women’s cloche hats, including simple felt cloche hats and hats with beautiful embellishments. This style has a long history in fashion that makes it a great staple for any woman’s wardrobe.

The Hat With A Colorful Past

Cloche hats were invented in 1908 by Parisian milliner Caroline Reboux, but gained popularity in the 1920s when Coco Chanel solidified their place in flapper fashion. In the years since, the cloche hat has become synonymous with prohibition-era speakeasies, the suffrage movement, flappers and Joan Crawford. This iconic hat is named for the French word for “bell” because of its subtle, bell-shaped silhouette. It’s worn low on the head to frame the face, which creates the demure yet feminine look.

A Modern Twist on a Classic Style

At Hats in the Belfry, we carry many women’s cloche hats that both honor this fashion tradition while including contemporary features and updates. Each cloche hat in our selection is made by expert hat makers using high-quality materials, like straw, water repellent nylon, Italian cotton, fur felt, wool or wool felt. Our formal cloche hats include fur felt or wool styles topped with lovely feather, flower or ribbon embellishments, while our more casual cloches feature poppy, cotton hatbands and more subtle belting.

We also offer a rainbow of colors in our women’s cloche hats, including cream, navy, red, black, lime green and orange styles. That makes it easy to stock up on various shades to complement your many ensembles. Be sure to shop at Hats in the Belfry to find the best selection of beautiful flapper hats for women.
