There are some really unique trends and styles out there. The ones that really come to mind for me include:
* English high society loved to imitate and copy Alexandra, then Princess of Wales, in the 19th century. After she procured a limp from a bout with rheumatism, people began to adopt a fake limp as a fashion trend.
* It was reported that Queen Elizabeth had rotten and black teeth from all the sweets she ate. As sugar was a luxury, people would go on to copy this look by painting their teeth black to show off all the sugar they could afford.
* Codpieces… just look that up.
* I particularly love the “Macaroni” style from the famous “Yankee Doodle” rhyme. It’s based in reality, a fashion trend in the 1760’s saw aristocratic men downing massive wigs topped with a feather or comically small hat.
I’m wondering what other obscure or hilarious trends or fashions have existed throughout history? Particularly those that are hard to find with a simple google search.
