Evolution of Womens Workwear
  • It might be surprising to digest at first,
    but womens workwear was not the way it is at the
    moment years ago. It was different, and it is
    safe to say that it has gone through years of
    evolution to become the workwear we now know as
    the normal attire working women wear. So, believe
    it or not, after so many changes workwear for
    women has become quite fashionable and trendy
    now. If you look up womens workwear on the
    internet you will be able to see a flood of
    pictures and models sporting silk dresses or
    construction boots that are absolutely perfect
    for business casual looks.
  • Even though womens workwear is very comfortable
    now, in the old ages it was anything but
    comfortable and stylish. We have a common
    misconception that in older centuries women only
    worked at home and did only domestic tasks when
    in reality they were a major part of the labour
    and workforce spread in factories, offices,
    industries and other places of work before the
    commencement of the 20th century. However, even
    then womens office attire kept evolving
    throughout the years. And during that time they
    frequently opted for skirts and heels and paired
    their outfits with office shoes, pearl necklaces
    and earrings to achieve a corporate look laced
    with elegance.

  • Female workers started participating and
    consequently became a big part of workplaces
    teeming with men from the 1930s to 1940s and
    their office attire during that time was inspired
    by men, of course. They wore dark suits, modeled
    after what the men wore to work normally. There
    was one difference in their uniforms, however.
    Men wore suits with pants while for women, their
    suits consisted of knee-length skirts.
  • Fast forward a decade and womens clothes changed
    again. They started wearing smart dresses to work
    which also evolved and starting coming with
    practical options. For instance, the smart
    dresses were made using fabrics that could be
    washed and dyed several times. In other words,
    they were capable of handling the wear and tear.
    In the 1960s, the clothes women wore started
    inclining towards femininity, and they started to
    wear feminine dresses with high necklines. And
    with the evolution of womens workwear to
    above-the-knee elegant dresses and modest shell
    tanks, more and more women started joining
    offices and going to work in different sectors.

  • The 1970s came with a bang of confidence in women
    as they started wearing more form-fitting work
    clothes to work. Older women and those working at
    senior positions at offices chose to stop wearing
    blouses because they thought that blouses looked
    too youthful and fashion-forward for them. They,
    on the other hand, opted to wear more structural
    jackets that showed authority and seriousness,
    instead. Young women, on the contrary, started
    weathering casual separates such as jeans and
  • The 80s was the era of women gaining their voice
    and power and wearing power suits to work. But
    the conservative suits were also worn by women
    and separates also remained. The attire came with
    a big plus for women who liked to socialize as it
    allowed them to dress professionally for work and
    then joining their friends for cocktails later in
    the evening. Moreover, with the introduction of
    padded shouldered jackets, the power look was
    completed fashionably.
  • Moving on, then came the 90s, women prioritized
    their comfort and wore comfortable tops with
    oversized jackets. High heeled shoes became less
    popular as shoes with low heels became a major
    choice for women. It was obvious to see that more
    and more were selected to wear the everyday
    attire for a daily look.

  • Lets talk about today now. What is womens
    workwear like at the moment? Women now have
    numerous styles to choose from that lets them
    dress however they want to while looking
    effortlessly professional. With the start of
    2000, about 60 per cent of women became part of
    the workforce today. Numerous style choices are
    available, allowing women to dress how they want
    while staying professional that includes anything
    even pants and denim.
  • The last decade has shown a total overhaul
    of women workwear in Australia and several major
    countries all over the world. There is still a
    restriction on workwear for women in some places,
    but they exist for a companys safety reasons and
