Vintage Photos of Outrageous Hat Fashion Circa 1910

Oh, what’s this now? These impractically fabulous hats are just tops! Literally. These ladies’ heads are piled high with feathers, streaming fluff, bombastic sequins, origami folds, and even more feathers. That’s some avant-garde design that’s sure to turn heads… very carefully, lest your own feats of noggin architecture not topple and god forbid, impale a passerby. See these hats, discovered by the Retronaut, and enjoy the lovely coy ladies donning these disasters. I mean, miracles. Obviously.
