 Just as most women will not venture forth from our houses without makeup, just so no self-respecting Victorian lady would leave home without a hat. Trimmed with frills, feathers, flowers, veils, jewels and ribbons, hats were a "must-have" fashion accessory for women in the 1800s. From the frilly bonnets of the 30s and 40s to the elaborate touring and tea hats of the 40s50s and 60s, to the offbeat 90s industrial revolution- inspired, Steam punk hats, American women like their British counterparts, kept up with the styles. From prosperity through the strife of the Civil War and Reconstruction beyond, during the long reign of Queen Victoria, hats were de rigueur.
Author, editor and journalist Carlotta Holton explains the fascinating history of these hats and demonstrates her colorful, stylish and often whimsical collection of Victorian headwear.
