During the Regency era, hats were typically part of your everyday wardrobe. They not only served the obvious practical purposes but they were also used as symbols of status, marital state, & fashionability. For this reason, hats during this time offered many options from the simple everyday bonnet to grandiose displays of feathers, flowers, and whatever other accents a lady might deem worthy to sit atop her head. Men typically favored top hats and these also ranged from simple to bold & colorful (also short & tall).
Regency era hats are not only extremely fun to draw but also fun to wear. If you’re looking for one to go with your costume/cosplay or just to add to a collection, here are some favorites that I’ve found:
Using my regency hats illustration, I’ve also designed this cute print that you can now find on Society6.
