American History

It was hard for the people to get into fashion during the

American Revolution not everyone could be up to date with the fashion, not because of the money but.Because ships already had a lot to carry in their boats.The ships would carry soldiers and weapons, and so then there was no space to carry clothes and things for the people in the villages.

In 1770s, it was common for women to have their hair big/high up.So much it would be hard to go into places walk into places were the door was not as high.

“In 1980s, fashional women of the time were expected to appear delicate,farial,thin,and pale.

“They should be short and slight with sloped shoulders and rounded arms”. “Slimness small hands small feet”.

Back then this was described as the perfect women.

In mid-1970s, American women began wearing “high waisted dress” made of light material that hanged down in floods showing just a little ankle. Because during this times showing your skin was not a good thing to do young or older did not matter the age a lady was a lady and they were kept to themselves.And so if you didn’t do this things right your reputation was hurt you would be talked about.

The Making of Americas Beauty Culture

Women were talked about if they didn’t have “Natural Beauty”. They were also not allowed to wear a lot of makeup “No lipstick until until dark.

In late 1800s,only women that wear make up were “Prostitutes”.

Not even “Home ladies” and rich women would wear makeup. Why? Because they were then pointed as a bad lady it was very unprofessional.

And unlike today Ladies cared a lot about what someone had to say of them,for good or bad.As time went by makeup became more accepted.But still with its “rules”. “Coloring the eyelids and beading lases were fun in the evening but bad taste in daylight”. “Acceptable for adults not for girls under 18”.
