Great Victorian Womens Hats

I was looking through my collection of hat pictures this morning and wanted to share a few of my favorites from the 1880s and 1890s.

The upsweep to one side on these is very dramatic, I love the movement in the design. Something about the first one is very Alice in Wonderland.

This whole outfit on the lady in the next photo is great. Love the menswear look, with jacket, hat, watch chain and umbrella over that big skirt. Very dapper. Not sure what the hat is called, but it looks kind of like a 'Tyrolese' from The Mode in Hats and Headdress by Wilcox.

The last are homburgs or fedoras. Worn for sportswear at the time, apparently.
