1935 Hat Fashions, Womens Hat Advertisements

Flattr this!

This entry is part 4 of 17 in the series 1935 Chicago Mail Order Company Catalog

These are some very smart summer hat advertisements showing off the wide variety of womens hats that were in fashion in 1935. Wide brim, short brim, anything but the old cloche of the 20s! As I’m writing this vintage blog entry on Mother’s Day, one of the ads reminds me that “Remember, Mother’s Day is May 12!” (Well, in 2012, this year, it’s May 13). Apparently in the 1930s, hats were great presents for mom on Mother’s Day.

Below are the 7 hat advertisement scans from the summer 1935 Chicago Mail Order Company catalog:

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
