View (B), a beret worn tilted far forward on the head, has a pretty extension at the back in place of the more common 1940s / 50's band. The purse has straps which act as a drawstring, passing through sewn-on metal rings. The close-fitting cap (A) is described as a 'calot', meaning a close-fitting hat without a brim. It was more commonly called a Juliet cap.
