Regency Fashion: Hats and Evening Dress

Appearing in October 1825’s Ackermann’s Repository, these delightful plates show an array of hats and an evening dress. I love the jaunty eyeglass on the sassy looking young lady. The 1820s are really when we start to see the turn of British fashion towards sleeves, waistlines, and trimmings of the Victorian era.
