Vintage Beach Headgear

A selection of images and ads showing the various styles and shapes of beach hats over the years.

I love this shot of a line up of lovely ladies, she shadow is especially intriguing.


Rose Marie Reid swimwear silhouette, don't the gloves just make this one pop?

Swim caps of the 1950's were all the rage, they came in various colors, textures and styles.



The large floppy 'Lido' hat.



Straw hats were also a popular choice for keeping the sun rays out.




Another fun ad showing various shapes in head wear styles.







And a kerchief style cap to tie the hair back.


And beach hat fashion from Paris. Who would have thought?
