HAuTe Hats

What was striking about the array of royal wedding headpieces, whether it was a chapeau or a fascinator, was the completeness it brought to a look.  Guests were dressed stylishly, literally from head to toe. While a matching hat can lend formality to an outfit, a hat in an eye-popping color or style can also add character to a modern ensemble.  

At Catherine’s Closet Vintage Boutique, we’re especially loving many of our headpieces tipped coyly over one eye.  The visual asymmetry updates the look from being a literal, to a fashionable, style interpretation of hat-wearing.

Breaking style rules also makes hat-wearing more modern.  Pairing a formal cocktail hat from the 50’s with an informal modern ensemble of sleek jeans and a simple top immediately elevates your entire look.  Our model wears a vintage 1950's cocktail hat with a contemporary tank dress.

Catherine’s Closet Vintage Boutique carries the largest collection on the island of Oahu of well-conditioned vintage headpieces, including hats, headbands, and fascinators, with our largest selection coming from the 1940’s-60’s.  They are featured at our hat bar at the front of the store on rows of shelves arranged around picture frame mirrors, in front of which customers can sit and watch while they are fitted with hats.

Our summer hat collection features floral and lace headpieces, perfect for outdoor garden parties and weddings. Headbands are an equally attractive, and more easily securable, alternative to fascinators.  These vintage 1950’s headbands are simply lovely decorative hair ornaments.

Feather headpieces continue being popular topper choices, as the lush, yet delicate, plumage projects an elegant sophistication.
