"She wore a tricorne hat which became her"

The three-cornered tricorne hat was popularĀ  in Europe during the late 17th century and 18th century, falling out of style shortly before the French Revolution. Originally military uniform, it was often also worn by civilians. Antoinette, however, is rather behind European fashion.

The tricorne hat's popularity in Europe was due to the fact that its brim guttered rain away from the wearer's head, a benefit that would also have been appreciated in Domenica, parts of which get over 350 inches of rain a year.
