Picture Hats: One Of The Favorite Fashion Styles Of Edwardian Women

The Edwardian fashion era is often remembered by large over-sized hats stacked with plums of feathers, bows, flowers, birds, lace, and tulle. They were called Gainsborough or Picture hats for how they framed a lady’s face.

This is a very broad category of hat; some versions may be similar to the halo or cartwheel hat. This style featured in virtually every decade of the 20th century, and has a history dating back to at least the 18th century.

These cool snaps that captured Edwardian women wearing their Picture hats.
