Women’s Fashion Trend
In the first 10 years of 20th century, women’s fashion dress always has a tight waist and tight sleeves or the length of skirt is very long. Fashionable women who were often in social occasions would wear tight lingerie and men’s like jacket cover with gorgeous hat.
From 1911 to 1920 period, women’s fashion clothing changes to popular narrow and straight skirt with the suitable waistband, or wearing fur hair ornaments. Small hat and handbag are of course very necessary to fashionable women. With the promotion of women’s status, fashion clothing’s decoration becomes more complicated, and skirts are also shorter than the past 10 years. The skirts are decorated by a lot of studded overhangs and look just like the pleated lotus leaf with the shiny beads and tassels. If the girl wears such a skirt to join the dinner party, she may wear a soft wool cape which will make her perfect.
As more and more women go out to take part in the outdoor activity, women’s tacksuit has been a leader of the fashion trend.
