Outfits for College and Boarding-School (1910)

In my last post, I shared a photo of what I wear to university on an average day. After posting that I was flipping through some magazine pieces I had bought a while ago and discovered an article about college/boarding-school style from 1910. Wow, I'm rather jealous now! I wish I could wear clothes like this to school, but even I have some limits... (not many though, as I tend to just wear whatever takes my fancy).

Here are the pictures from the article (the article itself is mainly just a description of the outfits so I omitted posting it too).  I love the simpleness of many of the dresses and skirts. I may have to figure out a way to incorporate some of the details into my wardrobe.

  1. I'll bet they would kill to get to wear a pair of Victoria's Secret sweatpants! ;-) The dress in the fourth drawing down is so gorgeous, though. It says "garden party in E.M. Forster novel" to me.
