Hats Worn in 1912


This week I'm featuring posts about the Titanic. I love the hats from this post.

This information is taken from my online pal's site.

"It was also a great age for hats for women, as this picture from La Couturiere Parisienne shows. This site has period costumes from the middle ages to the early 20th century.

According to The Vintage Dancer, Edwardian fashion era is often remember by large over sized hats stacked with plums of feathers, bows, flowers, birds, lace and tulle. Advice from The Vintage Dancers for the Titanic: Depending on the time of day and class you want to dress as will determine the type of hat. Hats that were worn on the Titanic by first class women would have been the very large picture hats for day wear. They would match or compliment the outfit in color. Evening wear didn’t normally include hats. However a nightly stroll around the deck would require a warm fur hat or wool scarf wrapped around your head."
