Bloomers and Frocks has collected an amazing and rare estate of 1940s hats in immaculate condition.  What sets 1940s hats apart from other decades? While the 1940s pulled inspiration from previous decades for head attire, newer small hat styles such as chaplets or curvettes were introduced, often adored with small flowers, ribbons, sequins and partial veils.  Shop now (both online and in shop) as they are on consignment and only in the shop for a limited time.
