This British fashion history infographic is a beautifully illustrated timeline of the evolution of English style.

The '100 Years of Iconic British Style' diagram separates the distinct looks of British fashion by decade, spanning the entire 21st century. It starts in the 1900s to 1910s, when men wore double-breasted suits accessorized with pocket watches and ascots and women covered up in full-length dresses. It travels through the fashion history of each decade, including the iconic flapper style of the 1920s and the clothing revolution in the 1970s up to the fedoras and chain belts of the early 2000s. In each decade, it uses a specific piece to highlight the era -- for example, a Christian Dior dance dress for the 50s.

This Iconic British Style infographic is an educational and gripping guide to British fashion history.
