Titanic Hats - Edwardian

The Titanic Era was followed by WW I and the world was not focusing on style as it had been before … however styles for women were at the beginning of a major change.   By the time the Flapper Era emerged in and around 1926, the hemline rose on shift-like shapeless dresses and corsets became a thing of the past. The stockings were rolled down below the knees and the knees were rouged. The hair style became a close cut bob and although wider brimmed hats were still in style, the cloche hat which fit very tightly to the head became all the rage with these “modern” women.

The Titanic era (1912) was not only a time for building huge ships, it was also a time for extravagant hats!
