I thought it would be fun to watch the amazing transformation women's gowns have taken from 1800 to 2013.
It was interesting for me to find that somewhere around 1930 designers started modifying designs from previous generations and "updating" them. The trend has continued to this day. Since 2000 it's hard to determine what the "style" has been. It's such a combination of many eras.
I was also surprised to find that some gowns were only slightly modified from one decade to another, but there are a few decades that changed drastically (such as the 1910s to 1920s).
Here are some of my favorite gowns from the past two hundred years.
