Fashion Through the Decades

54 replies 728 views Edited Mar 6, 2011

Hello, everyone! 

Home has a lot of diverse fashion.  It seems like we can wear anything from t-shirts to space suits to medieval armor these days.  We see a lot of beautiful fashion pictures over at the Ladies' Fashion Runway, and that's where my idea originally began--as a simple and fun project.

My first idea was to do a simple theme for a photoshoot: 50's Hollywood Fashion.  I had noticed that we have a lot of different fashion pieces in Home, and it would be easy to combine them and make retro-inspired outfits.  But that line of thought took the idea even further; why limit myself to that decade?  I thought about all the other things I've bought or received over time and realized that I could put together outfits from quite a few decades.  And so that's what I did.

I started in 1910 and took pictures of every decade up through 2010; 100 years of fashion in Playstation Home.  I originally posted them in the Ladies' Fashion Runway, but since not everyone here views that thread, Joanna_Dark_ pitched the idea that I should create a new thread, and I thought it was a wonderful idea.  This way, everyone can see the pictures, comment, and post their own if they feel like it.  It doesn't have to be limited to women's fashion!

I'll start by posting a specific decade each day, until I've reached 2010.  Feel free to comment and add your own pictures, I know we would all love to see them.  Don't be shy!

I would also like to thank DiamondDust816 for her support and help with nearly every photoshoot, and Aeternitas33 for his help and appearance as well.  Also, thank you to the ladies of the Fashion Runway for your kind comments and wonderful ideas.  I appreciate you all very much.  Without your support, I wouldn't even be making this thread, so thank you!

1910s

Men and women's fashion saw a change in the early years of the century.  For women, the stiff, hourglass silhouette began to diminish in favor of a softer, flowing look.  Skirts rose a bit, but were still long, around ankle length.  Men wore three-piece suits, and often wore cuffed trousers.  During the war years, fashion was not as big of a concern as it used to be.  Clothes were chosen for usefulness, and were more simple with a monochromatic look.  Throughout the decade, women often wore adorned hats.  Late in the decade, burlesque entertainment found its place on American soil.  Though not the traditional vaudeville acts of the 1800s, burlesque dancing and performances became popular, with women often wearing outrageous costumes.

"In olden days a glimpse of stocking was thought of as something shocking, now Heaven knows, anything goes!"

some homes were built with two entry staircases - one for women and one for men, so a man could not climb the stairs behind a woman and see her ankles.

This picture looks so much like one I saw of my grandmother, circa 1902, in a train station in Kansas, dressed in her best clothes for a trip to Kansas City.  I was amazed to find these clothes in the Costumes section of the Mall.  Thank you Sony for making this kind of role-play fun possible in Home.

I bet that outfit in Home cost more than it did in RL back in 1902.

I appreciate the comments, everyone.  Thank you!  Keara, I really like that picture you posted, very nice.  Thanks for contributing!

Everyone ready for the next decade?  Here come the roaring twenties!

1920s

After World War I, America began to relax--Prohibition did little to slow down the good times.  Fashion became a big concern again.  Women began to liberate themselves and a somewhat boyish figure became more popular.  Dress waists dropped, hems rose to the knee, hair was cut short and women began to wear trousers.  Designer fashions were popular, as were gloves, pearls, hats and other accessories.  Men wore suits throughout the decade, with high-waisted jackets in the earlier years.  Baggy pants arrived halfway through the decade and would be popular for some time to come.  Men of all classes often wore hats; fedoras and newsboy caps became common.

Thanks again, DiamondDust816!  Couldn't have done these awsome pics without you.
