Flashback to Femininity

Women moved away from wearing dresses, as the main clothing style, starting in the 1960s, when the jeans explosion began and the women’s revolution took hold. The 1960s were also filled with capri pants, giving women even more choices away from dresses and skirts. Towards the end of the 1960s jeans and pants were being worn more often than dresses. Today there is a surge of women’s dresses popularity. While women still wear jeans, shorts and other forms of clothing, dress popularity is on the rise.

The rise in the popularity of dresses can be attributed to the new vintage dresses popularity, as worn by Katy Perry and Dita Von Teese. But more than just those two Hollywood stars, dresses are being flaunted by all TV and movie stars. The vintage styles such as pin up girl dresses and pencil skirt styles, are part of a rising fashion craze.

Vintage styles are more popular as dresses because, historically speaking, women wore dresses almost 100% of the time. Indeed, women even wore “housedresses” while cleaning house and doing chores at home. Dresses were the essence of femininity. While women may still enjoy wearing dresses, there was a time period when dresses were considered as the only proper clothing for women, which created a sense of forced style. Pointedly not wearing dresses, or being refusing to be forced to wear dresses, was part of the women’s revolution. Now, with women’s rights being more prevalent, though still not complete, women can feel more comfortable wearing dresses to work, without feeling as though they will be seen as too feminine.
