I’ve always loved the 30s pretty, tomboyish style. It’s cheeky and excitable, allowing for flowing fabrics and femininity, whilst allowing one to partake in a spot of rounders/tennis/dancing/horse riding. Since starting swing classes, I’ve also become more enthralled with the jazzy, swing – jumping around wearing brogues and headpieces world. That’s not to say I can turn my dancing self to aerial dancing just yet – or indeed do the eight-step particularly well. But I do LOVE the 30s, it looks like it was an interesting time to be alive. And be a woman.
I myself have 12 hats, and each one represents a different personality. Why just be yourself?
Here are a few bits of headwear I like:

Beyond Retro has some fabdab headwear. Like this bowler hat!
Dorethea’s Closet has many beautiful, original headpieces, like these:
Giant Dwarf aka Sue Eggen does some gorgeous headpieces. I love this one:
