Fashion Date: 1910-1914
Hat Description: Toque hats with wide brims. The lady on the left has a solid color sash around her hat and it is pinned with a brooch. The lady on the right has a striped sash with a bow. Both hats' brims are rolled upwards. These hats are probably dyed straw. It was popular to change the scarves on this style hat to match the outfit or change the look.
The lady on the left is wearing a pinstriped walking suit. The jacket is singled breasted. Its lapel is made of a dark colored satin. In the original photograph the sheen of the lapel is visible. The lady on the right is also wearing a walking suit but her jacket is double-breasted and hip length. She is carrying a small purse with a chain handle.
It is difficult to provide hairstyle descriptions due to the size of hats on the women.
