Women used to wear frivolous, child hats as fashion accessories. They aren’t seen as often today as they were in the 20th century, other than the fascinators worn by British royals. It is said the hats originated as a rebellion against Nazi austerity. While the hats are now believed to convey elite status, they could be construed to simultaneously mock the wearer by indicating subservience while giving the finger to the culture that requires a woman to cover her head. The ridiculousness of some however weighs more heavily on the side of satanic, ritualistic, public humiliation.
