Half hats are also referred to as clip hats. They became popular in the 1950s and were intended to be worn with the pin-curled hairstyles of the time. Fitting right to the crown of the head, they can be worn straight on or tilted to the side. The edges are wired to help the hat fit more securely. Their small size covers only a portion of the head, hence the name.
They can be crafted from most any millinery fabrics, but when styled and embellished formally they are considered to be cocktail hats.
