National Hat Day

Posted: Updated:

Hang on to your hats and celebrate in style on January 15, with millions of others across the nation, as it is the annual celebration of National Hat Day.

Hats may be worn for safety and protection, religious reasons, ceremonial reasons, warmth or fashion.

In the Middle Ages, hats were an indicator of social status.

In the military, hats may denote ones nationality, branch of service, rank and/or regiment.

A Thebes tomb painting depicts one of the first pictorials of a hat . The painting shows a man wearing a conical straw hat.

Structured hats for women began to be worn in the late 16th century.

Millinery is the designing and manufacture of hats.

The term "milliner" derived from the city of Milan, Italy. The best quality hats were made in Milan in the 18th century.

Millinery began as traditionally a woman's occupation, as the milliner not only created hats and bonnets but also chose lace, trim and accessories to complete an outfit.

In the middle of the 1920′s, to replace the bonnets and wide brimmed hats, women began to wear smaller hats that hugged their heads.

Depending on where you live, if you are outside in the middle of a cold January, you may definitely want to wear a hat on National Hat Day!
