I just do not understand why more people don't wear hats.
Cute, unusual small hats.
Like the one pictured.
It is from the 1940's.
Doesn't it just make the outfit?
It is "one size fits all" because it sit on top of the head, and is held in place with a small elastic cord that goes around the back of the head.
Lots of people think that piece of elastic goes under the chin.
They even call it a "chin strap" on Ebay sometimes.
Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Only small children need to hold on to their hats by using an strap under the chin.
Wearing it that way feels awful anyway.
If you look closely at the first picture you will see the elastic on the side of Laura's head.
Usually you make sure the elastic matches your hair color, and tuck it into the hair.
The strap allows the hat to tip or tilt forward without falling off.
Hats created in this style do not mess up your hair!
(But they do "mess" with the boys a bit...oh the compliments just come flying in!)
