Womens Clothing From the 1800's to Now

How Clothing has Impacted Society Today

Fashion is our personality, feelings/moods, a reflection of who we are and how we want people to see us, put all on display by the clothes we choose to wear. The clothes that we buy demonstrate what kind of person we see ourselves to be, but can be influenced by current trends and what people we know like, mixed in with our personal taste. 

1800's Clothing

Sometimes women wore steel hoops under their skirts to make them rounder. Under their dresses, they wore petticoats, and shifts, and corsets to support their breasts. They could afford to use more cloth because people were making clothes of cotton, which was cheaper. They were simply made, with short sleeves and necklines which could be gathered up on a drawstring.  In the early 1800s, women wore thin gauzy outer dresses while men adopted trousers and overcoats. Since, for everyday dress, most people wore similar clothing, people used accessories to show their individuality.

1900's clothing 

The trailing skirts and broad-brimmed hats of mid-decade are giving way to narrower dresses and hats with deep crowns. Men wear top hats with formal morning dress or bowlers with lounge suits. Women also wore suits, with shirtwaists (blouses), and had sporting clothes for their more active pursuits like skating, cycling, and tennis. The suits were coordinated jackets and long skirts, and were made by ladies' tailors rather than by dressmakers.

2000's Clothing

Popular mid 2000s trends for women were embroidered low-rise jeans, yoga pants, cowl-neck tops, tube tops, denim jackets, bell-sleeved shirts, jean shorts, crop tops, whale tails, tracksuits, cargo pants, capri pants, trenchcoats, puffy jackets, longer tank tops worn with a main blouse or shirt. 

My reaction

I was really interested by this topic, because clothing is a really big part of society today and it was really cool to see the different time periods and the clothing in them.
