    Fashion History: The 19th Century

    August 10th, 2015

    Since the 19th century, clothing has been primarily divided into day wear and evening wear, categories governed by specific dress codes. In general, longer sleeves and higher necklines were meant for the day. Shorter sleeves and lower necklines were considered appropriate for the evening. These rules remained in force throughout the 19th century and even beyond.

    While the rise of capitalism and democracy men’s fashion become more sober, but women’s clothing continued to be decorative. The making and selling of clothes changed dramatically ever the course of the 19th century, as traditional crafts gave way, on one hand to rise of read-made clothing and on the other hand to the development of the haute couture.

    Fashion magazines, patterns and department stores made stylish clothing available to an ever-expanding population of costumes. Paris was the capital of women’s fashion, as London was of men’s.
