54 Outrageous Types of Headgear

From Lady Gaga's Orbiting Headwear to Ruffle Afros

— March 4, 2010 — Fashion
The types of headgear found in this cluster are sure to brighten up your day--or keep the sun out of your eyes at least. Whatever your interests are in headgear, there is something here for everyone.

Whether you use them to cover up a bad hair day or give your head a balancing challenge, these outrageous types of headgear are phenomenal--and you get to complete all of the actions above!

Implications - Some of the headgear worn in this collection is a little over the top and cannot be worn with style by all, but I think that is the point of many of these items. Not only does it look ridiculous, it immediately distinguishes you as someone with the gall and confidence to wear something that can (and likely will) attract negative attention.
