Women's Hats Make a Wonderful Outfit Accent

Posted by Administrator on 10/7/2014 to Monogrammed Gifts For Women
The History of Women's Hats

Head wear for women has an interesting place in history. Hats for women began appearing around the middle ages when the church decided that women could no longer appear in worship time without a covered head. In the 18th century the millinery business began to take off. The milliner created hats and bonnets for women to accessorize outfits even in ancient times. The term "milliner" comes from the city of Milan where most of the finest straw hats and custom made head wear was created during the 1700's.

In the 1800's the floppy brim became quite popular for women to keep the sun off of fair skin and complexions since the parasol had not yet reached its popularity. The trend to carry an umbrella over your head on a sunny day as an accent an outfit would come later in the century.

In the 1830's the sun bonnet began to grow in popularity. The fabric tie that held the hat in place was functional and held a place in society as a elite piece of clothing. Custom made of different fabric types to accompany an elegant outfit, these women's head coverings were vital to keeping away a sunburn in warmer climates.

Hats for Women in Modern Day

Today the hat is not as commonly seen in day to day clothing for women, however it can still make quite an impact when paired with the correct ensemble. The horse race circuit makes for a perfect opportunity for ladies to sport their favorite monogrammed derby hats in style. Accented with embroidered initials in any font and thread color to complete any sun dress and sandal getup. The Kentucky Derby makes for a beautiful display of women's fancy and floppy hats. 

For a more casual look, the personalized sun visor is a favorite. Whether on the tennis court or golf course, it makes for a wonderful way to keep the sun out of her eyes and damaging sun rays off of the face. Monogrammed ball caps for ladies are so much fun for any day of the year. Whether they are worn to the gym, to the pool or just out and about to run errands around town, it is a stylish way for the preppy girl to show off her embroidered initials on the go.

Sturdy enough to feel good in your hand, and nice enough to be able to wash and use again and again. Design them however you like with the name of your home and a fun nautical motif such as an anchor, Adirondack chair or sailboat to create a fun look that is personal too. If you are hosting a one time event gathering, our Styrofoam cups are always a favorite. Both types of drink holders are available in 12, 16, 18 or 24 ounce sizes. Select your favorite ink color and typestyle for a fun gift that is perfect for that friend who has everything else. Add matching cocktail napkins, guest towels and dinner napkins to complete you look. These options are all perfect for a beachside wedding event to match the nuptial décor. Personalized stir sticks with your initials or name in any shade of ink are a perfect companion to all these great paper products and are a fun way to liven up happy hour. Add custom matches in books or boxed to light the grill in preppy style. Printed in your choice of box or book color and ink with any saying or name.

Keep Track of Vacation Guests

A great way to preserve memories of all the friends and family members who have visited your vacation home is to keep an embroidered guest book on the coffee table for special friends to sign. You will love to keep track of the visits throughout the years as they return over and over again to celebrate the seaside coast with you.
