Anthony, Phil suspended that requirement a few weeks ago to accommodate folks who might be attracted to the Board by the upcoming 100th anniversary. Unregistered users, like the one you're responding to, are also being being permitted, at least for now.
For first class anyway, I would have thought that young girls would have been dressed by their parents to be a show of Edwardian respectability as well....the long, stylish dress and overdecorated hat, with the hair done up.
It's also important to remember that this was an era where what you wore was almost as important, if not more so than what you said or did.
Young women would almost certainly be dressed like their older counterparts as soon as they could be, for the simple reason that they would be more likely to be taken seriously and also would be allowed to do more things.
Some of this does have to do with wealth, but as has been pointed out, the third-class passengers were not by and large what we would consider "poor" especially in the Edwardian era.
Philip is quite correct, those who could afford even third class passage on the Titanic with the 1912 rate must not have been at the lowest ebb of the social ladder, although some had saved for their passage for a considerable amount of time. Then of course the ship had the best third class amenities that you were likely to find on any ship of the day.
"Respectable" is probably the key word in all of this...
I think I have mentioned this in another thread, but, as far as the British 3rd class passengers were concerned (don't know about the Europeans) many of them were lower middle class, rather than members of "the struggling masses".
I gave a talk about Oxfordshire & the Titanic in Witney, last night, and made this very point in relation to Oxfordshire passenger Amy Stanley, whose family and relatives were inn keepers, shop-keepers, farm managers etc. It transpired that an elderly member of the audience (a local farmer's wife) had known the Stanley family, and she confirmed my suggestion that Amy's family were certainly not "dirt poor" country folk; rather, they were members of the rural lower middle class (and would have dressed accordingly).
