A cocktail hat is a small brimless hat for women that neatly sits on the head just as a fashion accessory. These don’t cover much of the wearer’s head but are the symbol of style. Cocktail hats can be made from wool, felt, velvet, straw, or any other materials. They are decorated with feathers, veils, nets, ribbon and so on.
The shape of the Cocktail hat varies. However, they are generally worn at an angle on one side of the head or as a covering on a high hair bun.
They go well on formal occasions paired with evening gowns and dresses. Most times, they are matched in the same color as the dress.
