Fashion Pulse | Popular Trends in Hat Decorations.

Many women are finding creative ways to dress up the look of their favorite sun hat, beret or cloche. One popular way to enhance the look of a hat is to decorate it with peacock feathers. These feathers can add a dash of color and extra style to practically any hat. Consider some of the most common ways that women are using these feathers to enhance the appearance of their headwear.

Making a Unique Hat Band
The feathers from a peacock are fairly flexible making it easy for most women to create a hat band out of them. Generally, they attach several feathers together and then circle the feathers around the crown of the hat. A plain straw sunhat or a floppy felt hat looks all the more fashionable with a band made out of these colorful feathers. Some women even create a band of these feathers for each of the different styles of hats that they have in their wardrobe!

Highlighting the Color of a Hat
One of the things that make these feathers so popular is that they are available in many different colors and designs. So, a woman can either match a feather to a hat or choose a feather in a color that complements the color of a hat. Most women appreciate all of the creative choices they have when it comes to enhancing the look of their hats.

Dressing Up a Traditional Hat
These types of feathers are ideal for many styles of hats. For instance, a woman can add some flair to a plain, black beret by attaching a green and blue peacock feather to it. The feather could be long and wave in the breeze. Or, it may be a short feather that simply accents the hat making it look more elegant.

Another traditional hat such as a cloche can be dressed up with the simple addition of a feather on its crown or brim. There are many women who like to put their own twist on the look of a traditional hat.

Finally, a woman who uses these feathers to accent a hat is following along with a classic trend. In the 19th century, women wore hats that featured one beautiful peacock feather or a gathering of them. These feathers can make a hat look exotic and elegant at the same time.

I think big hats can be fabulous - when worn at the right event of course :)

Peacocks do have beautiful feathers. It would decorate a hat nicely - as long as no birds are harmed in the making of it.

I am not a fan of wearing hats. I'm probably weird. :)

I usually stick to straw hats on spring summer but love a dressier hat on winter season. A feather decor would probably give life to my old beret.

Peacock feathers are so lovely, and not just for hats, either! I have a pair of peacock feather earrings I adore.

I know that my mother-in-law would be delighted to wear peacock feathers. In fact, she may have already done so... she's very stylishly flamboyant. I'm going to ask her. :)

I am not a hat person, but I have always wanted to be. Hats are just so chic and fashionable and I've always wanted to look awesome in them. I just... don't. It's a pity really.
