This comprehensive study chronicles women’s and men’s fashion accessories from the early 1800s to the 2010s. Each chapter includes a historical overview of the era and an introduction to the principal fashions worn by women and men. Accessories are arranged by category and include hats, shoes, handbags, jewelry, gloves, parasols and umbrellas, fans, neckwear, belts and suspenders, handkerchiefs, hosiery, walking sticks, and eyewear. With more than 600 illustrations—many never before seen in book form—this well researched study will be a valuable resource for the fields of fashion history, fashion design and merchandising, theatre costuming, women's and men's studies, and popular culture.
