"Monstrosities of 1818", an October 3rd 1818 caricature by George Cruikshank exaggerating the latest style trends. For women, this was a trend towards a conical silhouette (as opposed to the narrow clinging skirts of the ca. 1797-1815 period) and large bonnets -- and for men, extremely tall cravats at the neck, narrow tails of the tailcoats, and the wearing of male corsets(?). By an old caricaturists' trick, the women's skirts are shown shorter than they would have been in real life. The men walking fully arm-in-arm was reasonably common and socially acceptable at the time.
