Strolling along

Flicking through the NYPL’s fashion plates reveals that for pretty much every era up until now, the Walking Dress was the most appealing garment in a woman’s wardrobe. I’m worried that we may have let these standards slip: some people even make the same costume do for Morning and Afternoon walking. The slatterns. Don’t forget an umbrella to peep out from beneath; if you are French you’ll need a dog.

    Lovely. I get to have different dresses for morning walking and afternoon walking? And another one for dinner, I suppose. I’m going to spend over half my day just getting dressed, considering the corset and all the other layers.
