Flashback Friday: The Hat

Jackie Kennedy started a trend with her pillbox-shaped hat

The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Princess Kate revived an old trend: the hat.

So this Friday, we're looking back -- at the hats our parents or grandparents (or perhaps even great-great grandparents) might have worn back in the day.

Here we have gathered a few of our favorite hat trends from the 1920s to the 1960s. Enjoy and share your own hat photos on our Facebook page, facebook.com/myheritage

And now we leave you with an ad for the Whippet.  The ad reads: "The sleek, trim lines of the Stetson Whippet…and the bold sweep of its bound brim…help to give you that confident, up-and-coming look that says you're "going places."  And the Whippet is going places too--it's America's favorite hat!  $10."
