Women revolution I

The evolution of women’s fashion and lifestyle shows us significant changes in the shape of clothes and silhouettes. Through earlier epochs, we can notice big differences in the shapes of female bodies. That was conditioned by each new time that occurred, but we should also not omit spatial conditions. Women very skillfully followed all the changes and innovations, even regardless of their body transformation, posture, and even character. We all know (at least from historical films) that women suffered severe body deformities, to the point that I would have difficulty breathing due to various corsets and armature.

That clothing is “socially coded” is shown by the fact that society has influenced the correction of individual external expression, primarily through clothing. “Fear of nudity was the main creator, accompanied by moral norms.” The role of women was clearly defined and meant to be a good wife, mother, and above all, to be the guardian of the family tradition’s morals. In terms of class differences, the role of women varied somewhat. Women who belonged to the high class played the role of “Doll,” who was passive, perfect, always smiling, and a status symbol of her husband. Her task was to emphasize luxury, And through that, she very openly shows her statute. In the 19th century, where male dominance was pronounced, women wore dresses that emphasized their sexuality. The main symbol of seriousness was a male blue suit for men, which also fulfilled the appropriate form. Here we come across a period when men dress more reduced, and women become the ones who follow all the fashion madness (later in history even more so).

Before the end of the 19th century, we can notice slight changes in the female silhouette, which are determined exclusively by the dresses they wear, and a slight transition to softer forms. Make-up emphasizes the eyes so that they are as big as possible, and the pale complexion because the fatal woman was pale at that time. Turbans are another fashion detail of that time, as well as pearl necklaces. Long coats were a trend, and this whole style existed in the narrow circles of the intellectual and artistic elite. The rest of the majority still followed the traditional style.

The very end of the 19th century is slowly becoming a time of significant changes, as “artistic” and “aesthetic” misunderstandings are confronted. That implies more precisely that the female body in “artistic” vision should mean “freedom,” while aesthetics still adhere to the crinoline and waist emphasis, as the perfection of the female body shape. Paul Poiret (1879-1944) was the first fashion designer to embrace the “artistic” experience and begin a new fashion revolution. She draws inspiration from Russian ballet and thus creates an unreal and destructive woman at the beginning of the 20th century.

How to know which fashion style determines you, or which epoch you are belonging

We all have some favorite movie, a place where we like to go, season of the year, but we usually don’t know what fashion style determines us. Maybe you know what you want to have in your closet, but you don’t know which style belongs. I agree that you don’t have to know necessary, but I know that it will connect you deeper with yourself at some point if you know. Maybe you will know to explain yourself to you, and you can understand fashion better, and one the most crucial thing, you will see what you are looking for when you go shopping.

Sometimes we can see some piece of clothing on someone that we like how it looks on her or him, and we can imagine ourselves at the same time, but it doesn’t work that way. I m the first one who likes to try different things, but also, I m the first one who can see if someone has that kind of personality to have something that not determines that person.

So, let’s start this way. First of all, do one very good and deep cleaning of your closet. You will find everything there, mostly if you didn’t “clean” for a long time. You may have heard that if you don’t wear something for more than one year, that does not belong to your closet anymore, and you can find the place or person you can give it to. This is also very “healthy” because you will make some new space for new things ( I m doing this in everyday life for simple things and feel so good!). When you start, pay attention to what kind of clothes dominate in your closet. Pay attention to: Shape, colors, multicolors, flowers, animal print, fabrics.. do the same with your shoes. Now, I will explain all styles during the last century we have and the most popular.

–       30s and 40ts- From history, this was a particular period because women started to do more experiments with clothing after the big fashion revolution during the 20th. They begin to work more, to be more independent, they begin to take more responsibility for their own life, and with that they start to wear suits and pants. Pants on women before were not possible, but fashion is a beautiful phenomenon ( when I say fashion, I mean on all lifestyle, not just what ppl will wear). Today, we have women that like to wear suits, a tie, a white shirt, very often a modern hat, white, or black, or combination, ( red lipstick, eyeliner J )and it looks very feminine, and fashionable at the same time. YSL made this revolution and put it all on a very high level, and that you can see in his movie https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2707858/ ( I indeed suggest!)

–     50s and 60s – After this big revolution that women made, not just how they clothe themselves, but lifestyle, some designers ( Dior) try to return feminine and put the shape of the body in the first place. That looks amazing, really. And it was very acceptable, but we still could meet that fantastic shape of the body at that time. Today are different trends. I can say that this was a charming and beautiful period, but it didn’t stop the next big revolution. The fashion and fabrics industry was in expansion at that point, and people start to use synthetic for the manufacturer and make chip and good looking clothing. That is the reason why women have a full closet of everything. This is very specific during the 60th.

Marilyn Monroe and Twiggy were the icons in that period.

–      70s and 80s.- I would say this is my favorite period, no just for fashion, but lifestyle. Everyone knows for the “Happy and Hippie” period during 70th, while we have something totally new – the jeans. This fantastic product is the most popular ever. The shape, length, width was different, but the comfort and style was for everyone! Light cotton and linen T-shirts were a complete trend. Comfort and freedom were the main motives of this very revolutionary movement. Multicolor, floral motifs on fabric, nice and soft colors, but light colors are symbols of light and soft materials. So, this period was fascinating and revolutionary. 80th brought new movement, and my favorite “PUNK.” This period was my inspiration for my design. The way how people express themselves was the latest trend. Makeup and clothing style in black color was a symbol of this period. On the other side, we could see a very elegant shape of shirts, silk, and superior business clothing combinations. With a similar style, one enters the 90s.

–      90th- We could see all different styles and expansions of everything came, but it looked on mess more than with any sense. We could see a mix of everything, and this actually was everything before an entirely new fashion era. Mess before big new fashion cleaning. Honestly, I liked this period. I was very young, but still, I remember all the super cool shows, music, and revolution in every way.  However, I always see something unique and different in all those periods. For me, all is that inspiration for new and different.


Even its fashion just “a no end of” the game by clothing elements, and maybe without some deeper meaning, if we know the structure of style speaking, we can sense all taboo, and we can see easier people around us, and maybe we can be more aware how the others see us.

We all have within us the energy of a particular epoch because it is evident that each has its own sensibility and that beauty is precisely there, in diversity. I know mine. 🙂
