Women’s Blouses in the Victorian Period

When it comes to the clothing fashion in the victorian period, most people may thing of the ball gowns and the bustle skirt. It is true women in the victorian period love to wear the dress. However, there are also the other types of clothes for women at that time. Here I will talk about the women’s blouses in the victorian period.
Blouses are historically a cask style, mostly mail-like garment, that were rarely part of the fashionable woman's wardrobe until the 1890s. Before that time, they were occasionally popular for informal wear by the peasants.


A simple blouse with a plain skirt was the standard dress for the newly expanded female workforce of the 1890s, especially for those employed in office work. In the 1900s and 1910s, elaborate blouses which were heavily decorated with lace and embroidery in a style became immensely popular for daywear and even some informal evening wear. Since then, blouses have remained a wardrobe staple.
Blouses are often made of cotton or silk cloth and may or may not include a collar and sleeves. They are generally more tailored than simple knit tops, and may contain feminine details such as ruffles, a tie or a soft bow at the neck, or embroidered decorations.
All above pictures I post are the most classic blouses for women in the victoria era. They look gorgeous on them with their almost white color and sleeves.
