bonnet definition and meaning

What is a "bonnet"?

A bonnet is a type of headgear that is typically tied under the chin with a ribbon or strap. The term "bonnet" usually refers to a soft, brimless head covering that frames the face, with a close-fitting crown and a deep back that covers the nape of the neck. Bonnets have been worn by men and women since the Middle Ages, but the term is now most commonly associated with women's headwear. They were popularized in the Victorian era and were typically made of silk, velvet, or lace, and adorned with ribbons, flowers, or feathers. Today, bonnets are often worn as part of traditional or religious attire, or as a fashion accessory.
