This is a fascinating and thoughtful discussion, especially for someone who tends to be somewhat socially conservative in dress without any particular analysis. Thank you.

As a complete side issue: until at least the 1950s it was unusual in Western society for either men or women at any level of society to be bare-headed in public, with obvious contextual exceptions. (I strongly suspect that the Queen's predilection for head scarves merely reflects her generation.) Does anybody know when or why this change occurred?

I have seen a suggestion is that this change in dress code is attributable to President Kennedy not wearing a hat at his inauguration but this seems unlikely.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
