Now that 19thcentury style advice will be available to modern women when a rare 1863 copy of the monthly magazine is auctioned at the end of the month.

In it, readers were advised what was and was not appropriate to wear in the autumn and winter seasons. The bound album, complete with vibrant colour plates, focused on hats, headwear and all the associated accoutrements because "bonnets are in great variety and in great favour just now".

Highly popular were "gimp balls placed around the brim of the bonnet", which were balls of silk or wool trimming, sometimes stiffened with valentino shoes sale wire.

The magazine advised: "For evening, dinner hair ought to be dressed in four rolls either side and finished off behind with a Marie Antoinette chignon, frizzed very much.

"There is nothing more distressing than seeing a dress of deep blue, inclining to purple, with a bonnet with skyblue ribbons."

Chamoiscoloured leather boots secured with silk cord and tassels were considered "particularly desirable", but women were advised to wear "elegant little slippers, called mules, with high heels" in the morning.

The magazine, which was uncovered in a house clearance in Burton on Trent, Staffs, will go under the hammer at Hansons Auctioneers in Derbyshire on Nov 29.


Charles Hanson, who discovered the publication, said: "It is just wonderfully subjective and descriptive. It really shows how certain ladies in society were setting the pace in terms of trends.
