Popular in the early 20th century, the close-fitting cloche hat is usually made with felt. But it works in straw too.
About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.
