The Victorian age was one of the most exciting and complex periods of history, an era of rapid change and great contrasts, in which dress reflected the times with extraordinary vibrancy. Female style was expressed in a succession of striking fashions, ever-shifting trends in the form, colour, material and ornamentation of garments, novel accessories and diverse hairstyles. Male dress was more uniform and sober, evolving subtly, whereas children's wear underwent significant developments. While celebrating the excesses of high fashion hot from Paris, Jayne Shrimpton also considers the dress of ordinary working people and the clothing worn for special occasions and sporting activities.
