Vintage fashion origins

We have heard all about Vintage Fashion all the time, with differing views all the time!

So what is Vintage Fashion actually? There has been a variety of reasoning to how vintage wear should be like. While we are not here to give you the exact definition to what is Vintage Fashion but base on our understanding

Vintage Fashion is a fluid term. Every decade will bring forth something Vintage. Dressing up in a fashion style inspired from a previous era ranging from 20 100 years old which in our case would be the 1900s to the 1990s can be defined as Vintage Fashion

So what are the fashion styles of the different eras? Based on what we have read and understand here are some of the fashion styles and trends from the 1900s 1940s


1900s
The end of the Victorian era lead to the rise of elongated skirts and forming the Train (the long back portion of a skirt, overskirt, or dress that trails behind the wearer) and slim, straight skirts which resulted in the loosening of corsets (can you hear a breathe of relief here).

Detailed gowns which focused on lace, cord work, appliqu, soutache, beading, tucking and insertion were all the rage with hats taking center stage! Hats with huge, broadbrimmed trimmed with masses of feathers and occasionally complete stuffed birds (yes you read it right) or decorated with ribbons and artificial flowers were worn during this era!





1910s
In the 1910s, the arrival of the First World War resulted in fashion with a more radical style.

The focus was on asymmetrical draping techniques with skirts rising above the ankle and bodices leaning towards higher wasitlines.



1920s
The end of World War I marked a fashion style which trended towards simplicity! Dropping waists to high hip levels and dresses became unfitted. Simple clothing was the fad, with a few tucks or shirring at the shoulders, or a little gather at the side seam hems lines perched above the ankle.

At times, a sash was applied to the hip but dresses also fell in a straight line with neckline usually taking the shape of a simple scoop or V but when collars were used they emphasized the long line.





1930s
The time of the Great Depression! Despite the economic hardship that met with the era, fashion never turned dull and gave birth to sinuous shapes and longer hemlines with waistlines returning to its natural positions while remaining relax at the same time. Zippers came into play for its easy to use nature with the introduction of bra cup sizing.





1940s
Due to the second world war, regulations were in place on how much fabric could be used and manufactured. Materials that were needed for military purposes were restricted for civilian use. However, this did not dampen the innovative fashion sense of the people!

Emblematic wide-shouldered, slim-waisted, narrow-hipped silhouette was established along with slacks which were once considered scandalous and fit only for the boudoir, gained popularity.



There you have it! Fashion style from the 1900s 1940s! Stay tuned for Part 2 where we will explore fashion styles from the 1950s 1990s!
