Presentation Transcript

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

See how much fashion has changed the last 100 years? It makes you wonder how much it will change in the next 100 years…
