Welcome to the worlds greatest guide to Women's Day Dress

A dress or gown is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).  It consists of a top piece that covers the torso and hangs down over the legs. A dress can be any one-piece garment containing a skirt of any length. Dresses can be formal or informal.

A day dress is a versatile piece of clothing for a woman's wardrobe.  It is simply a dress intended to be worn during the day.  This type of dress can obviously be worn from day to night as well. 

A ladies day dress is a classy dress that can be worn to work, luncheon, or various other occasions that are not overtly formal.

The women's day dress is not a cocktail dress or an evening gown, which would typically be intended for fancy events in the evening.

Women's dresses in the 19th century began to be classified by the time of day or purpose of the dress.  High-waisted dresses were popular until around 1830.  Europeans styles in dresses increased dramatically to the hoopskirt and crinoline-supported styles of the 1860s,  then fullness was draped and drawn to the back.  Dresses had a "day" bodice with a high neckline and long sleeves, and an "evening" bodice with a low neckline (decollete) and very short sleeves.

By 1920, the "new woman" was a trend that saw lighter fabrics and dresses that were easier to put on.  Younger women were also setting the trends that older women started to follow.  The dresses of the 1920s could be pulled over the head, were short and straight.  It was acceptable to wear sleeveless dresses during the day.
