Riding Habit Postcard

Riding Habit Postcard
Postcard dated April 1913. Riding habits of the early 1910's didn't change much from what was popular during the Edwardian era. Longer looser comfortable riding jackets (as opposed to the short tight fitting riding bodices of the Victorian era) were the accepted norm for a proper outfit and skirts were more tailored than the 19th century, cut in almost a rectangular shape with many darts to give a clean appearance once on horseback (but incredibly odd looking once on the ground. They would be draped around you and attached at the side making a skirt when not riding).
Popular during the early 1910's for riding jackets, were sleeves that were kicked up slightly at the shoulders, reminiscent of the late 1890's but not as severe.
