    Let’s ask the Fashion-Dictionary: What’s an Edwardian Style?

    The Edwardian Style comes from the olden days and is a certain style to describe a certain fashion periode. But what exactly does it mean?

    Must known fashion term #17: Edwardian Style

    The Edwardian era or period which corresponds to the French Belle Epoque period, covers the reign of King Edward VII, 1901 to 1910. The fashion style that was named after him, only worn by men in that Edwardian time, was influenced by the art and fashions of continental Europe perhaps because of the King’s fondness for travel. It featured tapered trousers, long jackets and fancy waist coats.

    It is also safe to say that the certain Edwardian style which was wasteful of material and only affordable by the upper class was recognized by its cuffs on jacket sleeves and extra length on the jackets. The very tight corset was modified, and later its everyday wearing was gradually abandoned.
