History repeats itself. I see many elements of 1860-1899 that resemble these to piece from a more recent collection. The shape and the styling are similar to the silhouette formed by the corset in the late 1800s.
The corset to was very popular during this time and the corset gave the body a fashionable image. It created a small waist and gave a smooth curve shape to the hip area. Layered skirts was a trend during this time. The layered skirts gave the illusion of the women floating on clouds, like a dream.
In 1860-1899 the colors used are light. The green is a light dark green, with its pigments not as strong as the ones used on the in the bright yellow from todays fashion. Another difference is in the late 1800s they mainly used one to two colors, now they mix in three or more colors to make apiece more aesthetically appealing.
In the early 1900s big hair was in and in the pictures of today the models are displaying big hair, it is part of the outfit.
The current pieces are similar to the historic pieces with the hair, the colors and the hats worn. They are also different by the use of diverse fabrics and colors in the outfits. Also the models of now are flaunting dramatic makeup. They are also showing their legs, which at this point in time was in so many ways not appropriate.
