Famous Styles of the Decades

When we look into the history of humans, 100 years won’t cover much. It seems a very small time to contemplate the history of mankind. But when we think of the history of fashion, then a 100 years can be a huge and influential time. Fashion trends change quite rapidly and a lot has been changed over the last 100 years. 

Earlier fashion was quite conservative, which limited women to dress in a certain way. Now people have become much more liberal and our society allows women to dress according to her choice and comfort. Dressing up doesn’t have to be an elaborate process which includes several parts and sub-parts anymore.

The changes in the women’s fashion over the last 100 years have been quite drastic. If you look back to where we started and to where we are right now the difference seems overwhelming. People used to fashion a bone-cinching girdle with an ankle length skirt then and now women roam around in casual leggings and sneakers. But the in-between years also saw some major changes, where the transformation from the traditional to modern wear was made.
