Sepia Saturday

style

This week I’m most impressed with the women’s style (for the beach no less). Let me share photos and information about their elements of style.

Gibson Girl Hairstyles

These Gibson Girl hairstyles have caught my attention on BBC productions set just before WWI. Popular in the Edwardian Era, illustrator Charles Dana Gibson, the Gibson Girl look consisted of cascades of hair pinned loosely on the head, a tall, healthy body showing the results of regular exercise like bicycling and an a emancipated spirit evinced by a young woman entering the workforce.


Here’e a how-to video. The first part on makeup is below.

These Edwardian fashion plates show you how to put your look together.

Certainly, the hats and corset require perfect posture and probably weren’t the least bit comfortable, but the look is stylish and creative.vict f plate

This dapper man sure can sport a hat. He looks familiar, but I can’t place him. Can you?

Hats, ancient and modern. They had more pizzazz in the past, methinks, though that last one looks uncomfortable.
