Most Victorian-era boys wore dresses and the reasons were practical
But I am drawn to clothes made for men — a well-fitting wool pin-strip three piece suit, for instance — as a way for women to reclaim the qualities that most people think are not inherent to us. Unknowingly, more often than we care to admit, we judge people by what they wear or how they look. I have a natural predilection for tomboy style, most comfortable in clothes two sizes too big and a pair of worn-in sneakers. In the 19th century, wearing hair up itself became a significant rite of passage for girls at pubertyas part of their "coming out" into society. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
