History and evolution of the style

Conservatism with a touch of aristocracy in fashion is aa tribute to the modern preferences of Albion. You will not make a mistake if you perceive England as a developing organism that is developing at the same time, and which is persistently trailing to traditions. And what was the norm was considered exemplary in 19th century England remained virtually unchanged in the XXI century. This is not surprising, the United Kingdom is a country of strict rules, observance of national traditions and conservatism in everything. Including, in clothes. It was such an unprecedented, unbending, craving for traditions that laid the foundation for the foundation, which resulted in a separate direction of the unique English style - recognizable all over the world.

France had a predominant influence on English fashion for a while, but after the revolution there it lost the authority of the trendsetter and, in the case of England, could not return it. The fashion of the foggy Albion went its own way and achieved its first formation already at the beginning of the XIX century. It was at that time that the main features of the style were removed, which remain unchanged to this day.

Example of severity: the elbows of the ladies should be closed. So, if the sleeves of a blouse are less than three-quarters long, a jacket is necessarily required to it, according to style requirements.

Jacket - solely in shape, along the chest or waist. The usual length of a classic English jacket is up to the middle of the thigh, but it can slightly exceed the hip line. Under such a jacket, in addition to the classical blouse, you can wear a blouse in a tone, and a turtleneck.

Traditional details of clothes - collars of a jacket type, pockets with a frame, a leaf or with valves. Finishes of clothes - a minimum, and all it is quite strict. The stitches are allowed only in the color of the fabric, if possible, blind stitches are also used. The same requirements for buttons: the color is strictly in the tone of clothes, the sizes are small and no pretentiousness.

Fabric and colors

The style under consideration provides special requirements for both the choice of fabrics, clothing styles, and the selection of accessories. The main requirement is the quality of the used tissues. For clothes, only natural materials are suitable: leather, tweed, jersey, wool, suede, cambric, silk and cotton. The use of synthetic impurities, stretch, lycra and lurex is not allowed in any subterfuge.

Restrictions in the palette of colors are reduced to a ban on unnatural shades, diversity, pretentiousness. Preference is given to saturated or calm tones, more often matte: black, mustard, blue, brown, bog, burgundy, terracotta. To this noble color palette can be added a celestial blue and a delicate peach. For clothes of the English style, single-tone fabrics are preferable. Drawing - a traditional cell and a strip.
