High waist, which made a woman slim and sophisticated, became popular in the XV century. At the same time, models with a wide collar, long narrow sleeves and in rare cases a train have become common.
In the 16th century, jewelery decorated dresses became fashionable. Attention was paid to the finish, and the style of dress went into the background. The influence of French attire made the women's attire softer by the middle of this century, without excessive pomp and severity. The focus was on elegance. Loose skirts, bows, soft folds, interesting finishes - this was the dress of that period.
During the Baroque period, elegant models with an extended cable and wire frame were in fashion. At the end of the XVIII century, the waist of the dresses rose to the maximum under the chest. As for materials, light, translucent fabrics have become popular.
During the reign of Napoleon, luxurious outfits began to be popular, and a little later, light corsets and elegant capes replaced them with Romanticism.

In the 1930s, elongated dresses returned with an emphasis on curvaceous breasts. In the 50s, ladies began to give preference to an elegant style. In the 70s, denim outfits became popular, and in the 80s - punk dresses.
