Types
Fashion accessories can be loosely categorised into two general areas: those that are carried and
those that are worn. Traditionally carried accessories include purses and handbags, eyewear,
hand fans, parasols and umbrellas, wallets, canes, and ceremonial swords. Accessories that are
worn may include jackets, boots and shoes, cravats, ties, hats, bonnets, belts and suspenders,
gloves, muffs, jewelery, watches, sashes, shawls, scarves, lanyards, socks, and stockings.[1]

History
In Victorian fashion accessories such as fans, parasols and gloves held significance for how
women experienced gender, race and class. In this era, there was a trend for women to adopt, or
aspire to, a more leisurely lifestyle. Consequently, gloves were often used by women to cover
their hands and mask any signs of lbor.[2]
Also, in the early 16th century in Italy hat badges were worn by civilian men of a higher social
status as decorative item, in imitation of the cap badges worn by the invading military. Hat
badges were often worn in conjunction with a decorative sword and hilt. Hat badges were
fashioned after plaquettes and often depicted a scene with personal relevance to the wearer.[3]
