The fedora has an interesting history. Although its moment in the spotlight came with gangster movies and mob films, it existed way before then. It was originally a woman's hat.

The first time it was worn in history was in 1883. It was worn by a woman in a play written by Victorien Sardou called "Fedora".

Stage actress Sarah Bernhardt wore the hat for her role as Fédora Romanoff, and it became popular among women.

You can wear them on different occasions.

For example to the beach;

The fedora is perfect for beachwear; a wide fedora in a bikini and chiffon kimono is perfect for the beach.

For a night out

For formal occasions;

There are different types of fedoras, so do not be afraid to splurge on brightly coloured or flower-shaped ones.
