The history of women’s fashion has been dominated by two styles.
One was a time when women’s clothes were made to look feminine and the other was a style for men that reflected their gender identity.
Both were worn by women who wore a range of dresses in the mid-19th century.
But while both styles were popular at the time, they did not go on to become the defining fashion of modern day women.
This was the era when many women felt that their clothes were not fit for the workplace and had to compromise on their style in order to get ahead.
They wore the most revealing clothes to work and sometimes even took their own clothes off when they left the office.
The women who worked the hardest and were the most vocal about their dress and appearance had to go into the public eye.
One of the first to get the attention of the press was Anna Louise Porter, a 19-year-old newspaper reporter from London, who made headlines in 1899 by revealing her legs in an article for the Evening Post.
It was her first major public appearance and it was an instant sensation.
“I felt quite confident and very proud of myself in my new, new, more feminine appearance, and that was very important for my future career,” she said.
Porter’s style was not the only change to come to women’s wear in the late 19th century, but it was the first time a fashion was seen as representing the modern female form.
This meant that women could dress up in clothes that were not traditional and that reflected what they had been through and what they wanted to achieve.
The first woman to wear a skirt in the public domain was Emma Blundell, a journalist from London who became known for her high-waisted skirts, which were worn on the streets of London in the 1830s.
“There was a whole movement in the 19th and early 20th centuries towards making skirts less formal and more casual and a sort of informal skirt that could be worn in public,” says Joanna Beddoes, an assistant professor at the Royal College of Fashion in London.
“She’s a classic example of that.”
She says that Blundll’s style, which had a skirt and high-necked dress shirt, was a great departure from traditional styles that often depicted women as wearing long skirts.
“It’s quite a radical style that didn’t exist then, that’s one of the reasons why Emma is a classic,” she says.
Emma Blundel was a journalist who became a household name.

It wasn’t until the 1890s that a dress with long trousers was worn on a regular basis.
“At that time, it wasn’t unusual for women to wear skirts and a long dress, so they didn’t have to compromise,” says Beddoe.
“But by that time it was common for women in Britain to be very dressy and there was a certain amount of fashionism, so a lot of the designers wanted to push it further, but they were not allowed to do so in public.”

A Victorian woman, for example, would not have worn a long skirt to work.
“Women would work in the street and go into public dress and they would be the most fashion conscious,” she adds.
It was during this time that fashion was moving away from the idea of women as just ‘women’, says Bodden.
The Victorian era saw the introduction of a new form of clothing called the waistcoat.
It became more formal and was made of a cloth, made from a woolen material, which was tied at the top and tied down at the bottom.
“In the early Victorian period, there were a lot less formal clothes,” she explains.
“People were wearing very simple clothes that you wouldn’t wear in a formal setting.

That was just one of those times that women started to wear more formal clothing and this was the time when people started to really push back against the idea that women were just as bad as men.”
