Beauty Through The Ages: What We Used To Think Was Beautiful


Fashion can be one of the most important things in some people’s lives. Even those who don’t care about what they look like still have to buy shirts and pants to cover their bodies somehow! Fashion is a social construct; there is no right or wrong way to dress as long as you’re protecting yourself from natural elements like extreme cold or heat. Regardless, our culture is still obsessed with fashion trends and the way we look and have been for an extremely long time. Take a look back at how our beauty trends have changed all the way since the Renaissance Era!

001--18-the-beginning-54221313cc314a81d798fb18e0d8bb74The Renaissance Era took place between the 1600’s and 1800’s. During this time, clothes weren’t always a necessity, as can be seen from many of the paintings of the time. Those who did wear clothes wore large puffy dresses and capes, just barely enough to cover their bodies. It wasn’t really about what you were wearing, it was more about whether you wanted to cover up or not. That’s not the only thing that was way different about this era!
