DRESHOW Fascinator Hat
What happens when you combine classic fascinator and pillbox? Amazing versatility! Pillboxes are small containers used to hold pills.
Beginning in the 1930s the basic pillbox design was employed by milliners, or hat makers, who created a new style of head covering: the pillbox hat, a smallish, brimless round hat that featured straight sides and a level top.
It’s hard to imagine women not wearing a hat in Kentucky Derby, cocktail tea party, church or a wedding!
Pillbox hats are popular because of their simplicity and elegance. They most often came in solid color and were usually unadorned with accessories except for a colored net veil, or a single pin or jewel.
They were, however, made of an array materials, some of which were elaborately designed.
These included green wool with ornate gold cording; black velvet, smothered in black beads; a transparent fabric, with attached overlapping organdy petals and silk rose bouquets.
The color may vary slightly from the online image due to monitor color settings.
