Women's Fashion 1894-1897

I spent some time this morning in the Local History Room of the Fullerton Public Library, looking at microfilm of the Fullerton Tribune newspaper from 1894-1897, as research for my history of Fullerton project.  I was struck by the advertisements for women's fashion, which has changed quite drastically over time.  Here are the "hottest fashions" from 1894-1897.




 





 There were far fewer examples of men's fashion, but here are a few images I found, which might give a sense of the kinds of fashions men were wearing at this time...

  1. All of those fashions required corsets and petticoats beneath! It was a lot of dressing, especially on a hot day.
