A little bit later in the time-line, sleeveless and cap-sleeve day dresses came along as favorite day-wear for women.  This more casual style  continued to keep them in a dress, looking feminine, but also retained the easy-wear aspect that had become so important. Some, like this one, had pretty details that added a bit of dressy feel, but overall these dresses were so comfortable and easy to care for that they were a great liberation from the fussy styles and fabrics and many mandatory accessories that had dominated women’s lives for decades (centuries).

This is what women wore in the 1950’s and early 1960’s the way that we wear jeans today.  Personally, I like having the choice . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
