Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Something Important Chaged Dramatically After World War I

Women's Hats



Thanks to the incomparable Iowahawk (or Mrs. Hawk) for pointing this out and posting these great graphics.

By the way, if you have other suggestions for future "Something Important Changed. . ." articles in the future please post them in the comments section below.


  1. COOL observation! Neat comparisons. Thanks. Frankly, in my opinion, women's fashions in general improved considerably in the post-war era. Those wasp-waist corsets pretty much went away and clothing in general became more comfortable.

  2. I just wish it was still ultra fashionable to wear hats! Great observation and I thoroughly enjoyed this comparison.
