Fashion of the 1910's was characterized by fluid, soft silhouettes, big hats, and short hair. Dress length came up from the floor to above the ankle. Often times, women wore a tunic over long skirt. Skirts were widest at the hips and became narrow at the ankle. Shoes had high, curved heels. Women often wore boots during the day, and changed into a court shoe in the evenings. The first sneaker was designed in 1917, by Keds. Women wore ankle length coats with fur trim. Big hats with large brims became widely popular in this time. Women's swimwear was very conservative, extending down to the mid-thigh. Sometimes more conservative women wore leggings with these already modest swimsuits.
