100 Years ofFashion
This presentation will provide a visual of the eras described in the first paragraph, so while reading about these eras and their evolution to create fashion freedom, you will have some idea of what the clothes look like!
Dresses were the social standard for women
Dresses had a conservative cut
Corsets were always worn
Crinolines were used
Dresses generally had many frills and ruffles
Dresses were always long
Women liberated themselves by cutting their hair and no longer wearing Victorian clothing
Hemlines were shortened dramatically
Corsets and crinolines were abandoned
Dresses were flowing and comfortable
Black became a common color in clothing; it was no longer used solely for mourning purposes
Social standards for clothing weren’t as tight
The flapper, with her bobbed hair and short skirts, became a 20s style icon
Because of rationing, women’s clothes had to have less fabric during World War II
This led to short, skirts jackets
Sheath dresses replaced flowing ones
Women rarely wore pants during these decades; it was looked upon as odd
The shorter skirts from the 1940s and 1950s stayed
Clothes came in brighter colors
In 1966, Mary Quant came up with the idea of the miniskirt
Pants become commonplace for women
The mod and hippie subcultures emerged
Twiggy become a fashion icon
1980s fashion tended to be rebellious, colorful, and crazy
People used fashion to express themselves
Clothes often did not match
No conservative fashion here!
Leggings, legwarmers, and anything brightly colored was in style
Lots of glitz!
1990s fashion was more subtle than 1980s fashion
It was more minimal (not as much glitz)
Oversized t-shirts and sweatshirts, overalls, wind pants, straight-leg jeans, and baggy jeans were popular
Uggs, layering, printed clothes, leggings, Bermuda shorts, and ripped jeans are popular
It has components from many decades: leggings from the 1980s, Bermuda shorts from the 1960s, and printed clothes from the 1960s
“Green fashion” (clothes made from organic materials) has also seen an emergence
