What is a Clouche hat?

I recently learned what a clouche hat is. I never knew what to call the low riding hats of the 1920's. I recently watched the "changeling" where I was many of these lovely and I find alluring hats were worn. When I think of the clouche hat I thinks of the image of what we see here. However many hats are termed clouche. I learned from wise geek that

"A clouche hat is a close fitting women's hat with a floppy brim which is designed to be worn low on the forehead. A well designed cloche is structured so that the wearer must tilt her head and peer down her nose to see, giving her a slightly haughty look. Cloche hats were made immensely popular in the 1920s, when they were used to make daring fashion statements, and they experienced a brief period of resurgence at the end of the 20th century. "
