Women played an important role in colonial America. From helping their husbands and families build new cities to participating in the revolution of the era, women were both support systems and strong rebels in their own right. Like their husbands, colonial women also loved fashion — and the women of the 1700s weren’t afraid to wear the latest styles of the time.
Headwear was extremely important to colonial women. Both practical and fashionable, women donned a number of different types of hats during the 18th century. Some hats, like the wide-brimmed straw styles popular with the upper class, were meant to attract attention. Others, like simple white caps, served an everyday purpose. One of the most famous hats of the era was the colonial mob cap.
The most important and iconic daily accessory worn during the 18th century, the colonial mob cap was worn by women of all ages and classes. Young girls and women alike wore mob caps, tucking their hair under these caps. A mob cap meant a woman could go out into town without styling her hair. It also protected her hair from the dust and dirt she’d encounter outside, letting her wash her hair less often. Though many mob caps were made of plain linen or cotton, it could be dressed up — some colonial women wore all lace mob caps, while others preferred white caps trimmed with lace edges.
