From the 1940s, a tilt hat in cream faux straw with red velvet band and red veil.
- large red decorative buttons pinch the sides for a riding hat silhouette
- full-face red veil has velvet ties
- grosgrain inner band
- elastic strap goes under your hair at back, securing the hat to your head
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to wearing hats, only suggestions. So place it however flatters you best. Wear it at a jaunty tilt, straight on, with the veil over your full face, halfway, or not at all (ties allow you to place it as you prefer, or out of the way). It's entirely up to you.
