WHAT WE WORE
A photograph of Serbian Day in London shows off the clothing worn by civilians during the First World War. The silhouette of women’s fashion changed during 1915 into a softer, more romantic form, fuller skirts flaring out from narrow waists, the length of the skirt several inches above the ankle. As in the Edwardian era, the three-piece lounge suit was still worn by men, with narrow trousers and long jackets. Hair was short and young men were usually clean shaven.
