Overview
Being fashionable in the late Victorian era meant wearing things like dresses with puffed sleeves and high collars, and making sure to have a proper hat and an elegant pair of gloves.
And how did women stay current on the latest styles? Most of the time, they found out about the latest "up-to-date" and "charming" clothing trends from the newspaper.
Between the covers of this book, you will find 47 coloring pages showing full-length fashion plates of tea gowns and walking dresses, evening costumes and dainty frocks that were popular in the United States during the late Victorian era - specifically, 1895 to 1899.
The definitive word on what to wear and how to wear it was delivered on the women's page of the Sunday paper, where every aspect of the attire - color, cut, fabric and trim - was thoroughly described and illustrated.
Although the outfits within are all from a five-year span, the definition of "stylish" was constantly changing. Grand announcements about the current trends were regularly published in the papers under columns with titles like "Vanity's Whims," "Women and Their Ways" and "Fashion and Fancy."
Now, take a look back to the Gilded Age, and give these clothes the color and verve they have been missing for more than a hundred years
