Some men may think that it’s acceptable to follow the president’s example and grab women without consent. But even at the turn of the 19th century, women refused to tolerate such behavior: a fashionable lady could pull a long, sharp steel pin out of her hat and give her harasser a good jab.When the hatpin was introduced in the mid-1800s, it liberated women from cumbersome bonnet strings. Urban industrialization, public transit, and department stores presented women new avenues for freedom. And in the early 1900s,...

Feminist women’s brand Wildfang has collaborated with streetwear-oriented OBEY Clothing to create Rise and Riot, a capsule collection inspired by resistance to systematic oppression in today’s political and social climate. The collection was released Wednesday on Wildfang’s website. In a press release, the two brands stated, “Rise and Riot collection is for those who want to fight the system and band together against oppression. The line was created in representation of togetherness and getting angry.” The collection primarily works with orange, white, and black colors, and includes...
In our latest Fashion Nation column, Kailey Flyte of the blog Mermaidens tells us all about her pink personal style. How did you get into fashion? When I was really little, I used to read my sister’s magazines. I would cut out all the photos and tape them to my wall. But clothing-wise, I only had my sister’s hand-me-downs. So it felt like a fairytale, it was so out of reach. How long has your hair been pink?It’s been five years—before that it was black. My mom went...

  Purple was one of the most fashionable — and versatile — colors of the Victorian era. In fabric shades ranging from pale, delicate lilac to rich, deep plum, it was suitable for day dresses, visiting dresses, riding habits, and evening gowns. It was also an acceptable color for those in half-mourning, with ladies frequently wearing dresses in shades of mauve-grey or lavender. The 1856 invention of aniline dyes resulted in even more varieties of color. Gowns and accessories were produced in violets, magentas, and brilliant...
  On December 18, 1972, the United Nations General Assembly designated 1975 as International Women’s Year, taking as its themes equality between men and women; the “full integration of women” in economic, social, and cultural development efforts; and peace. It was a hopeful moment for women’s rights in the United States; in 1972, the Equal Rights Amendment passed both houses of Congress and went to the states for ratification, and Title IX was signed into law, barring gender discrimination at federally funded schools.  President Gerald Ford signed...

  Here at BUST, we’re not ones to pussyfoot around—we know a well-named clothing item when we see one. Witness the pussy bow, a scarf-like accessory that has been around since the 1940s and reached peak popularity in the 1980s, thanks to working gals everywhere. This pussy bow will take you no more than 30 minutes to create using a sewing machine, though you can also make it by hand. Best of all, it looks great with everything from a button-down shirt to a lacy dress....
   When taking a baby out of the house, many Victorian mothers first covered the baby’s face with a veil. These veils were believed to protect infants’ faces from extremes of weather, as well as from harmful pollutants which might mar their delicate skin or injure their eyes. By the 1870s and 1880s, baby veils had become so ubiquitous that sewing books, ladies’ magazines, and even etiquette manuals often included knitting or crochet patterns for them. As The Ladies’ Book of Etiquette and Manual of Politeness...
    Red carpet season is descending upon us fast — so get some champagne ready and prepare to hate-watch. This year, lots of actresses are planning something special, sources have reported to PEOPLE magazine: They’re going to wear black. It's not exactly revolutionary fashion-wise, but culture-wise it is. Multiple award presenters and nominees, like Meryl Streep and Emma Stone, are reportedly planning on wearing black to the Golden Globes, and possibly throughout this year's awards season. The women wearing black during the Golden Globes are doing so in...

Sustainable fashion brand Reformation just launched limited-edition pasta tees, and I’m predicting a new “cool-girl” staple. The limited-edition designs are printed on Reformation’s Joplin Tee, and are available in “Al Dente,” “Cacio e Pepe,” and “Spaghetti Pomodoro.” The best news? They're only $38 each (!). If you haven’t hopped on the graphic-tee trend, now is a great time to start. Pair with jeans, a vinyl skirt, or your favorite plaid suit and head on over to the closest Italian restaurant (sadly, the tees are carb-free). Haven’t...
