A gable hood, English hood or gable headdress is an English woman's headdress of c. 1500-1550, so-called because its pointed shape resembles the gable of a house. Originally a simple pointed hood with decorated side panels called lappets and a veil at the back, over time the gable hood became a complex construct with a box-shaped back and two tube-shaped hanging veils at 90-degree angles; the hanging veils and lapets could be pinned up in a variety of ways to make complex headdresses.
