Fashion Friday – Regency Style

I came across this great blog post with some Regency-era fashion templates from roughly 1816. Although the bonnet’s modern form is the¬†fascinator, part of me still wishes we could get away with floral adorned head pieces with colored-ribbons. If you could bring any regency-fashion piece or style to the modern day world, what would it be?

Some of my favorite Princess Kate fascinator looks! (If I can’t have bonnets, this is a close second!)
