One fashion designer who changed the style fashion was Coco Chanel. She started working in the fashion industry when she failed to find work as a singer. Chanel made costume jewelry, little black dresses, and pants. However, the little black dresses were made for funerals. She was one of the first designers to use jersey, which was used for men's underwear.
She wears bangs and overalls, which is unusual. The conventional way to dress for a girl was very different from the way Scout dresses, which is why her choice of attire is often frowned upon, but she insists that she “could do nothing in a dress”(p.90) When she mentions that, she gets the response that she “wasn’t supposed to be doing things that required pants.” One of the reasons why Scout is different from the other girls is because of the way she was raised. Her mother died when she was only two years old, so she didn’t have a big influence in Scout’s life. The remaining female influences Scout had in her life were their cook Calpurnia and her neighbours. Her father Atticus didn’t raise her with the goal to make her the perfect lady, but tried to teach her to use her mind and have empathy with others.

When thinking about fashion, many people think of clothing, shoes, accessories, etc., but what people may forget is that hair influenced the fashion of the decade as well. In the 1950s, the hairstyles were more of a natural look with length varying from long to short (Women 's 1950s Hairstyles). Popular hairstyles included The Italian Cut, which had the short and scruffy, yet sculptured hairstyle, with waves all over, and soft fluffy curls; The Bubble Cut, where the hair was teased into tight curls all over, and the poodle cut (Women 's 1950s Hairstyles). As the time period changed, so did the hairstyles. By the 1960s, not only did hairstyles changed, but so did hair colors.

Today, women can vote, they can become a doctor, and they can become a banker. We have come a long way as a society, as women can become anything that they would like to be, but that does not mean that there isn 't work still to be done.
