Disco hats are head wear used for disco dancing. They became popular in the mid to late 1970s.
Ladies sported beret or beanie-style hats elaborately decorated in beads, sequins, or rhinestones. Fascinators decorated in shiny beads, sequins, and rhinestones, as well as brightly colored turbans and knit caps were also seen on the dance floor.
Men wore fedoras. White with black trim was a favorite, as were oversized newsboy-style caps.
