Throughout the twentieth and twenty- first century the evolution of woman’s fashion has been as steady and strong as the women themselves. Woman’s fashion has been influenced over the years by location, history and even a woman’s societal status. The early 1900s was the ending of the Victorian era and into a new century of developing tastes and transformation. The 1900s were defined by corsets, the hemlines becoming shorter and the women comfortable baring a little mores. The 1920s and 1930s were defined by more of a “ladylike” appearance with femininity defining the daylight hours and glamor defining the after-hours. The 1940s was defined by World War II including usage of subdued colors such as Subdued, blue gray, bottle green and donkey brown. Rosie the Riveter became the American cultural for the American women while their husband, boyfriends, brothers and fathers were away fighting the war.The 1950s were defined by full skirts with petticoats, fancy suits, and swoop line empire dresses worn with Stiletto Heels or Italian Pumps. The 1970s were defined by bell-bottoms, mini skirts and their greatest inspiration was rock inspired fashion. The 1980s and 1990s were defined by over-sized shirts, large hoop earrings, leg warmers, cute baby doll type clothing and denim jeans and Doc Martin shoes.
