Transcript of Victorian Era Fashion
Fashion was a very important part of the Victorian Era.
Yet fashion was very different from how it is today.

Woman's fashion: Day and Night
They wore different dresses in the day and in the night for many reasons, such as: parties, weather and others.
In the day time they wore dresses that had long sleeves, with high necklines. They also wore jackets that were three-quarter-length called casaque. It was uncommon to wear a revealing dress in the daytime because it was improper. Their accessories included bonnets, which were hats that tied below the chin and jewelry.

When the children were in their earlier years they wore dresses, both boys and girls. They remained this way until the age three.
Boys wore dresses as babies and skirts up till the age of three. With their skirts they wore tunics, and small coats.
When the boys got older they moved on to wearing sailor suits, knickerbockers (baggy pants that went to the knee) and clothing that resembled their fathers.

The girls wore dresses with a respectable neckline, and their crinoline skirts were calf length so their pantalettes (underpants) were visible.
As the girl gets older her dress length gets longer. At the age of fifteen, the girls style resembles her mothers.
