Experts named 3 things that originate in wars

For centuries, fashion has been a reflection of the geopolitical mood of society, influenced by wars, pandemics, and other global phenomena. For this reason, new elements have always appeared in women's wardrobes, some of which quickly lost their relevance, while others became base.

Analyzing the novelties in the looks that appeared during and after the wars, we can distinguish the familiar cardigan, bomber jacket, and trench coat. The editors of the Vogue glossy wrote about this (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).

Cardigan

A warm V-neck sweater, which is usually sewn without fasteners or with massive buttons, carries the history of the 18th century, namely the Crimean War. It got its name thanks to General James Cardigan, who wore a knitted vest without a collar under his signature uniform.

In 1918, fashion designer Coco Chanel created the first women's suit consisting of a straight skirt and a short cardigan with patch pockets and contrasting edging around the edges. Europeans liked the novelty so much that the first models became a real hit among beauties.

It is rare to find echoes of war in modern cuts, as cardigans have become more refined and elegant, but we should not forget that once upon a time they were protection for soldiers from frost and wind.

Bomber jacket

The modern bomber jacket owes its existence to the uniform of pilots who fought at high altitudes. Soldiers who spent a lot of time in an airplane needed warm clothes that would not hinder their movement.

During the First World War, Thomas Burberry, the founder of the international Burberry chain, invented a functional raincoat for soldiers that easily protected them from rain and wind but did not cause inconvenience in movement.

However, the soldiers liked Burberry's invention so much that they continued to wear it in everyday life, bringing the trench coat fashion to the masses. Over time, women picked up the trend and began to create their analogs.
