This Peaked Cloche Hat from Diane von Furstenberg lends an instantly sixties feel to any outfit, without lacking subtlety or classic looks.

The hat takes a classically pre-War cloche style and gives it a sixties update, with a more structural shape and the addition of a pageboy style short peak. Finished in a luxurious burgundy felt fabric, with gold hardware, the result is a piece that captures all that felt modern and chic in the sixties.

It's available online from Matches Fashion for £125.

Leopard Cloche Hat from River Island

Many fashion designs which draw on a number of eras for inspiration can go wrong, with clashing influences sitting uneasily together. This Leopard Print Cloche by River Island, however, has done so with a result that's got great kitschy appeal.

The leopard print has a nod to styles from fifties pinup to seventies safari, while the cloche is traditionally pre-War as a hat shape. The wider brim, however, ties into the seventies aspect once more, creating a hat that's updated without losing it's retro roots to modern fashion.

It's available online from ASOS for £22.

Felt Cloche Hat from J by Jasper Conran


While fifties and sixties style will always have a dedicated following, it's always worth a look when mainstream fashion offers alternative retro influences on the high street. This Felt Cloche Hat from J by Jasper Conran is a great choice for a less seen twenties or thirties look.

The basic black is always a hit for 20s styles, allowing the intricate ruffled detailing to remain subtle. The cloche shape is perfectly retro, while the use of a black felt fabric keeps true to the vintage inspiration itself.

It's available now from Debenhams for £20.
