30 Lovely Portraits of Edwardian Sisters

Edwardian fashion from the late 1800s continued to influence the early 1900s. Women still wore corsets and long skirts. Edwardian fashion was opulent and formal, with expensive fabrics and trimmings. They favored a distinguished, mature look.

The well-dressed 1900s woman was covered from the neck down. Her silhouette was an S-curve. The shape came from a corset that put less pressure at the waistline by pushing a woman’s chest forward and her hips back. Women wore dresses or tailored suit dresses. Those who could afford it chose sumptuous and elegant fabrics, such as silk, satin, damask, or chiffon.

Edwardian fashion is known for dramatically large hats, such as wide-brimmed. Enormous hats required hairstyles that could support them. The most popular hairstyle was a full pompadour, with hair swept loosely up into coils or buns. Women might have added braids, false hairpieces, or wigs to give styles more structure and height. Some women used hot curling irons to create frizzy or curly edges. It was also stylish to tuck fresh flowers or decorative combs or hatpins into styled hair.

Here below is a set of lovely photos that shows portraits of sisters posing together from the Edwardian era.
