Evening Fashions of the Year 1952 (1883)

This illustration is from a beautiful 1981 edition of the 1883 Albert Robida book Le vingtième siècle. La vie électrique. The edition I've linked to is in French and doesn't include any color pictures such as the one above. For an English translation check out The Twentieth Century (Early Classics of Science Fiction), but again, the illustrations are in black and white.

Well, to be honest: The 80's fashion kind of looked like that.

Yetused, that was exactly what I was thinking. They almost got +100 years on the dot.
