While searching around on the Austrian National Archives ANNO Historical Newspapers and Magazines Website  I found this interesting fashion expose on Ladies Smoking / Tuxedo Costumes that feature Men's Like Soft Felt Hats circa 1926.

It seems to be catching on because people like it. Some try to "feminize" it a bit with lace cuffs and lace jabots. Others, on the contrary, emphasize the masculine look Note through shirt front and Men's Hat. Even the skirt, notched by a deep front pleat, is said to be vaguely reminiscent of men's trousers. The skirt comes out next to the skirt of the same color different material, composed to the jacket in the color.
