While men’s driving caps were achieving notoriety as an emblem of the working class back in the day, women’s hats were anything but flat – all festooned with crinoline and feathers, and every imaginable feminine flourish. It wasn’t until women started embracing the menswear trend that women’s driving caps and hats, newsboy and ivy caps began to trend in fashion circles. Variations on the women’s driving cap emerged in the form of newsboy hats, ivy caps (for golfing!), berets, and other chic interpretations made from wool tweed, leather, and even velvet. The riding cap of equestrian fame has inspired many silhouettes that fall into the women’s driving caps genre. A charming, sometimes boyish accessory, ivy caps, newsboy hats and cabbie caps satisfy a woman’s desire to inspire a certain amount of intrigue in the way she dresses. Look to Kangol and Gottmann for women’s driving caps in all shapes and sizes.
