History of clothing
In the history of clothing, this period can be divided into three stages.
During the Renaissance, the characteristics of the clothing formed were the overall V-shape of men's clothing, which was a bit lighter on the upper side; for women's clothing, the overall X-shape was lighter on the upper side.
From the 17th century, Baroque began to prevail.
By the beginning of the 18th century, the history of clothing entered the Rococo period. If Baroque clothing is male and power, then Rococo is feminine.
The clothing history of this period can be roughly divided into five periods
1. The Neoclassical Period
Its clothing features are that men and women's clothing is relatively fresh, elegant and restrained. This can be seen as a critique of the Rococo style.
2. The Romantic Period
Its clothing features are wide-shouldered, thin-waisted, and enlarged skirts for women's clothing, returning to an X-shape similar to the Renaissance period. The recent popular lantern sleeves and wide open collars can be regarded as a tribute to this period.
3. The Neo-Rococo Period
For men's clothing, modern popular formal wear (suits, tuxedos, etc.) began to appear. For women's clothing, corsets and skirts are used extensively!
4. The Basil period
The changes in menswear are not very obvious. Due to the development of society, women participate in social activities more comprehensively, making women's wear continue to move closer to men's wear.
5. The Art Nouveau period
At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the "Art Nouveau" appeared in the field of art.
Men's formal wear in this period was gradually limited to three-piece formal suits and shirts.
And women's clothing began to appear S-shaped clothing. And with the help of technological progress, the corset that can deform women's breastbone has finally evolved into the Bra we are familiar with today.
