The Breton became popular with the 1960s mod look. It features a low crown, fitted to the head, with a wide, upturned brim. It is worn toward the back of the head. Breton hats can be crafted from many different fabrics that hold their shape. They tend to have few embellishments. This style was brought to popularity by actress Marlo Thomas in the 1960s hit TV show That Girl.
