Time travelers of all kinds will tell you that it is important to get the details correct. No detail could be more important than having the right hat.
1870’s and 1880’s
After the 1860’s women’s dresses went from large hoopskirts to more of a natural form. I use the word natural loosely, but take a look at the images and you’ll see what I mean. Hats went from bonnets to amazing works of art. There was something to fit every taste. As the dresses in the 80’s became more extreme so did the hats.
I’ll be featuring more amazing and fashionable women’s hats from the 19th Century in future posts.
For all of you top hat fans there will be plenty of dashing men with their hats in the future as well.
Until then let me know if there is anything fashion wise you’d like to see, or other types of 19th Century photographic portraits you’re interested in.
