Women’s fashion is influenced by many factors like location, history and politics. The status of the women in the society also is responsible for the type of clothes she is expected to wear. Now, things have changed quite a bit and if you go to an online store like Veronica M, you will find many distinct styles of women’s clothing in one place.  But to understand current fashion we have to look at the past. So, here’s a  look at some of the fashion trends that have been around since the 1900s

1900s:

In the early years of the 20th century, women had to have their legs covered at all times, so shoes, socks stockings etc. didn’t matter much as they would almost always be covered by the voluminous skirts or gowns that they used to wear.  Mostly the cloths were dark colored with silk bows and buckles. The shoes were pointed and had a moderate high heel.

In that era, the legs started gaining attention and they could be seen through women’s cloths. Flesh colored stockings and shoes became an important part of any outfit. Expensive silk stockings were worn in the evening and ribbed and patterned selections became part of the fashion trend.

1930s:

At 1930, fashion trends veered towards clothes with decidedly feminine cuts. Clean and crisp in the day and glamorous during the evenings. Strappy open toed sandal made their way to the market. Nylon was introduced at that time so styles of stockings also changed significantly.
