Georgian 1714-1811

Men’s and women’s clothes were elaborate and flamboyant (in the case of the upper classes) reflecting 18th-century lifestyle and architecture.


Powdered wigs were worn high, adorned with feathers and jewellery and sumptuous brocades and silks were the height of fashion.


Men wore breeches with silk stockings and long coats and women wore wide, narrow skirts with tightly laced stomachers adorned with embroidery and lace.
