Other key looks from 1900 to 1919
Edwardian blouses: Made of ruffles or striped, it epiomized the femininity of the time.
S-shape corsets: This corset created the ideal female Edwardian form with a tiny waist.
Geometrics: Sweeping curved patterns in deep colours red, black and blue appeared from 1910 along with other geometric patterns and cubist motifs.
Hobble and kite dresses: After leaving behind belle époque silhouette, dresses became looser. Paul Poiret created the revolutionary hobble skirt. It had a shorter and narrower hemline which influenced the kite skirt.
Lace up boots: These came back into fashion during the years of the first world war.
Beading: Very popular at this time, beading was used excessively on evening dresses
Kimono style: Japanese style dresses were very exotic and brought a new form of beauty based on simplicity and oriental design. Many evening dresses had square cut sleeves and the shape of a kimono.
