A fascinating photo history of women's fashion.

Reckless


The buzz around New York Fashion Week is always exciting. It's wonderful to see people from all over the world gather together for their love of fashion.
It makes you realize how important fashion is. One of the first things we do in the morning is decide what to wear. Whether we're heading out for a day of leisure or getting ready to make a big sales pitch, our clothes help us tell our story throughout the day.
Fashion has always been key to how women have presented themselves to the world, and how society has wanted to present women to the world. From panniers that emphasized wide hips to shoulder pads that emphasized "power," the fashion of the time tells our history in great detail.

THE WORST FASHION TRENDS IN HISTORY

By Brunson Stafford You might have spent some time regretting some of your recent fashion choices, but your choices are probably not nearly as bad as some that have been made by fashion designers in the past. These fashion “trends” of the past may seem bizarre on first glance, but when you take a closer look at them things start to get really weird! Many of the fashion trends in the past have focused on making women more appealing, but they were also used for more nefarious purposes. Some of these fashion trends were actually used as a way to control both women and men alike. Here are some of the worse ones;




Crinolines The crinoline was a gaudy hoop-like dress worn in the 19th century. They were usually made from wood or horsehair, but sometimes they were made from steel! It was fashionable for women to have wide hips in the 19th century, and the crinoline was meant to accentuate the hips. Kim Kardashian would be jealous! Unfortunately, many women died wearing these contraptions, as th…

The Complete History of Blue Jeans, From Miners to Marilyn Monroe

If you ask someone why they wear blue jeans and they reply "because they’re comfortable," they are lying to you in a way that is so total and complete I suspect they are also lying to themselves. Denim is a tough, rugged material meant to withstand time and the elements. Literally any other fabric would feel better against your skin. Generally, when people say that something they wear is "comfortable," they mean it is psychologically comfortable, not physically comfortable.

This is not my “well, I’m in college outfit.” This is my “I have always worn this style” outfit. But, remember how I said I was feeling my outfit today, well...I was until I tried to “do it for the ‘gram” and post my cute outfit of the day post. Fail. The lighting wasn’t right, I couldn’t get the right angle and then I realized that my outfit was quite...”normal.” I had on skinny jeans, grey knitted sweater, checkered black and white cardigan and calf-high boots. Nothing out of the ordinary. First mistake I made was scrolling through Instagram before posting my “feeling myself” outfit. I follow quite a few fashion bloggers and today, they all happened to have posted some really chic, cute outfits. So chic and cute that it made me ask myself, “what the heck is fashion sense?” which was then followed by “why d…
