Hat trends are interesting to watch and the past year has been no exception. While 2013 was all about toque hats and 2014 was the year of the pillbox, the calot hat saw prominence in 2015. Here are some of the calots (and calot variations) we saw last year:
The only royal house not embracing the calot are those in the House of Windsor (the British royals favoured cocktail hats and more traditional brimmed shapes). This is the third year in a row we’ve seen a strong trend for brimless hats and I have to wonder when brims will make a comeback. I suspect that with four out of five of our favourite hats of 2015 all sporting substantial brims, many of you are hoping to see more brims on royal hats in 2016!
What do you think of the calot trend, dearest readers? What trends would you like to see in royal millinery this year?
