In the days when the American west was being settled, men and women wore tweeds from Scotland, British-inspired suits, long, luxurious skirts, long-sleeved blouses, shirts, and waistcoats made of durable, thick fabrics. Naked knees, elbows and plumbers’ cracks were rare sights. Combined with rugged yet elegant cowboy boots and hats, these tasteful clothes served two functions, affording both ladies and gentlemen dignified self-esteem out on the range, and protection from the elements.

Western Emporium Presents a Lingerie Lace Skirt and Blouse

“Recreate one of the most popular styles of the early 1900’s — the lingerie dress. All-white outfits, bedecked with frills and flounces were all the rage across the country. After centuries of exclusivity, lace was finally manufactured in factories and became available to the masses. And the ladies took to it like a duck to water, covering their blouses and skirts with ruffles and lace.”
