35 Beautiful Photos Show Bride's Fashion Styles During WWI

Fashion and dresses in World War I broadly leant towards the art nouveau movement. Out went restrictive corsets and in came the modern bra. Free flowing lines and freedom of movement became popular in clothing, as did military style garments. During the start of the 1910s, dress designs had a horizontal layered look and empire waists.

Wedding dresses were feminine, modest, free flowing and with an abundance of lace. Brides accessorised their bridal looks with capped veils and a bouquet of fresh traditional flowers. Makeup during the early twentieth century was a natural and simplistic look, consisting of small pots of rouge, face creams, and blotting papers.

Take a look at these beautiful photos to see what brides looked like during WWI.
