1912 Edwardian Fashion: Hat - 4 by CharmaineZoe, via Flickr

1956 - Back when women actually cared what they looked like when they went grocery shopping!

A gorgeous woman in Algiers, the capital of Algeria, in the 1900s. The coins on her head dress are so lovely. I love how statuesque she looks, how regal.

The fashion for this decade can be split, pre-war (1910-1913) and war + post-war times (1914-1919). Pre-war fashion was luxurious and characterized by opulent trimmings, small waists and large exotic hats. Once the war began, things in the fashion world changed with it. Women began to opt for more practical garments. While the men were away fighting, women became the engine that kept industry moving and they needed clothing that allowed them freedom of movement. Corsets were abandoned.
