Robe à la Française

The most fashonable style in the 18th century was the Robe à la Française also known as the sack back gown. It had panels running from the sholder to floor that were loose from the rest of the dress, much like the mantua as it was pinned to a stommacer front but tied in the back to keep the shape. This style spread around the world as France became the center of fashion. People would even travel to France to shop and see the newest styles. Fabrics became ligther and and the style much more frivolous

English Country style t The english country style came by when the English court stopped being the social center, and society would happen in the country. It was much more somber and practical, riding clothing and the style becomes much more masculine by modern standards Although it came much more fashionable towards the end of the century there were always memebers of society that would dress less frivolously.
