The Common Clothing

While hooped skirts, powdered wigs, crazy hats, and tight pants ruled the French court during the time period of the revolution, conflict led to new clothing styles among that masses. There was a switch to comfier clothing, including culottes, which symbolized the rebellion of the middle class. Soon these types of clothing were recognizable as instruments of the revolution. In the same way jeans represent the common cause. During World War Two Rosie the Riveter was seen wearing a denim top, uniting people for a cause through clothing.
