Women's Work Wardrobes Through the Decades

Nealeigh Mitchell | Excelle

November 11, 2010

Let’s face it. The way you dress at work says a lot about who you are, what you do, and where you want to go. Just as women no longer have to ”act like men” to succeed, women no longer have to dress exactly like men to be taken seriously. But that hasn’t always been the case.

Womens’ steady climb up the corporate ladder is reflected in their wardrobes. The stay-at-home moms of the 40s turned secretaries of the 50s turned CEOs of today have traded in their aprons for power suits.

Business attire has become more relaxed, more feminine and more flattering, but just how much has women’s workplace wardrobes evolved through the decades? Let’s take a look.
