This hussar jacket below quickly sums up the new
autumn 2005 look. The khaki hussar jacket, stunning black and ivory
brocade jacket and floral quilted jacket with beautiful beaded tie
are all guaranteed to turn heads.
The sense of wearable elegance continues with eveningwear in luxurious
fabrics. Stylish pencil skirts, fitted waistcoats and lace-up round-toe
boots finish the outfit, or opt for a vintage silhouette with the tiered lace ribbon skirt and sculptured corset top.
Fashion-Era.com looks at women's costume and fashion history and analyses the mood of an era. Changes in technology, leisure, work, cultural and moral values. Homelife and politics also
contribute to lifestyle trends, which in turn influence the clothes we wear. These are the changes that make any era of society special in relation to the study of the costume of a period.
