Transcript of Romantic Era Fashion

1798-1832 by: Meggie & Paige Influence on fashion of the Romantic Period The 18th century enlightenment focused on reason, logic, and was mostly for the aristocracy, so the fashion styles were more plain and rigid. In contrast, the romantic era centered on emotion and the individual, common man, which caused styles to reflect the emotion and class status. Romantic Styles Enlightenment Style Men's Fashion Style in Sleepy Hollow Women's Attire Full skirts and corsets emphasizing the natural waist. In contrast with earlier periods, there is a resurgence of elaborate dresses with large sleeves and hips, still showing a narrow waist. HATS DRESSES Children's fashion styles in Pride and Prejudice Men's fashions continued
to show a tight silhouette
with broad shoulders
and a narrow waist.
Frock coats with a tail became informal
wear. Cloaks were worn with
evening clothing and overcoats with
wide sleeves were worn traditionally
in the daytime . -traditional frocks are worn over breeches (riding pants) with tall riding boots which was a common day style of the romantic era

-triangular curved hat
-full, white blouse underneath a cloak Elaborate hairstyles with large
hats were common. Hats were
heavily decorated with trim, ribbons,
and feathers. Married women often
wore a cotton cap for day wear
trimmed with lace and ribbon, which
would be worn under a bonnet for
going out. Rounded bust, narrow waist, and sloping shoulders were emphasized by the cut of the dresses. Gowns often had a wide neckline and short, puffed sleeves. -Dresses: trimmed with frills and lace
-narrow waist/corset like silhouette

-men: traditional evening coats for dancing and going out Small boys wore tunics over trousers

of a puffed skirt and sleeve.
