1916 is my favorite fashion year in the early part of the 1900s. The skirts were shorter, corsets were a bit less confining, she shape was definitively feminine. Fabrics were rich and colorful. This was soon to be lost as the influence of WWI added a stricter form, a dropped waist and less fitted look; just not as pretty as in 1916. Fashion illustration at that time was especially lovely too, so it all worked together to make this fashion period memorable to me.
