WHAT WE WORE

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEHIND THE HEADLINES -

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.
