While people often think the fads of today are as ridiculous as they come, history has had its fair share of trendy hiccups to give the weirdest styles we’ve seen a run for their money. From immobilizing skirts to outlandishly extravagant wigs, ornamental hermits to compensating garments, the world of bizarre historical fashion has tales aplenty to keep you entertained for hours. It’s quite interesting to look back at what was in vogue in centuries past, wondering how in the world something so ludicrous to us today could ever have been considered fashionable. But hey, who knows, maybe you could try one of these old fashions out at your next gala. Nothing like a little vintage style revival to make yourself the Belle of the ball.

They also fell out of favor because women needing practical clothing for the war like you said but that was after 1908. Just a little 20th c dress history.”
