TARTAN FASHION - Edwardian and Great War Era

Edwardian Fashion

See below for a collection of vintage images showing the influence of Scottish tartan patterns, on the fashionable set, in the Edwardian Era through WWI.

During the Edwardian period, many women had established themselves in the workplace, and tailor-made suits were an all-purpose outfit that women found functional and comfortable. These suits were often called "tailor-mades" and consisted of a narrow skirt, a simple jacket, and a basic blouse, which was called a shirtwaist. During the later half of the Edwardian era, fashions once again transitioned from the "S" curve dresses to the pre-flapper, straight-line clothing of the late 1910s.
