Evening Dress for Man and Woman from Britain, 1868
Metropolitan Museum of Art
The black suit, something that we still see today, is starting to take hold in the world of men’s formalwear, as well as a looser jacket that does not pull in at the waist to the extremes of early 1800s menswear. The woman’s gown comes with a lovely lace shawl, only really useful for warmer weather though lovely all the same.
