I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.

I think some of these are in the wrong era, stylistically, or maybe the eras seem weird because they’re divided up w.r.t. English monarchs, I don’t know, but I do want the sources.

Do some people really think Marie Antoinette is Victorian?

Old news, I know. But I love the styling of this shoot. I don’t even know what they’re wearing but the composition and layering are wonderful.

Feral sweater girls!
