History of the blouse
Some women wear beautiful blouses, with beautiful colors and fabrics. In ancient times the blouse was not part of a women’s wardrobe, it was not until 1810 in the Victorian era that it was only just beginning to be worn. The blouse is worn formally, elegantly or casually; they always make women attractive and favor according to the figure. Initially the blouses were buttoned on the back and that is why the servants in charge of this task decided:
- Reverse the way of buttoning forwards and they put the buttons on the left and the buttonholes on the right, according to the number of buttons that the garment wore meant the importance and economic power of the owner.
- Another theory about buttons is that the dry cleaners changed the order of the buttons so that they are not confused with men’s shirts.
- In the 1900s to 1910s , with the introduction of the use of the skirt and pants, the blouse began to take over and today it can be found in different models, colors and fabrics.
