30 Elegant Photos Defined Edwardian Ladies’ Fashion

Edwardian fashion from the late 1800s continued to influence the early 1900s. Women still wore corsets and long skirts. A complete wardrobe included hats and gloves and, for women, often an umbrella. Edwardian fashion was opulent and formal, with expensive fabrics and trimmings. They favored a distinguished, mature look.

The well-dressed 1900s woman was covered from the neck down. Her silhouette was an S-curve. The shape came from a corset that put less pressure at the waistline by pushing a woman’s chest forward and her hips back.

One of the hallmarks of the Edwardian era was dressing to fit the occasion. The advent of department stores selling ready-to-wear clothing made it possible for more people to have a variety of outfits. Clever home seamstresses could copy patterns they couldn’t afford to purchase.

These elegant photos were found by Nori (Nóra Mészöly) that show what fashion styles of ladies looked like during Edwardian era.
