Robe de style, 1920’s France
The robe de style was a softer alternative to the straight up and down dresses that were typical of the 20’s.  They maintained the fashionable dropped waists, but the skirt was full or wide (with panniers).
My own observations: Robes des style had an interesting place in silent film.  They were often worn by characters who were supposed to be innocent or childlike.  They would be paired with Mary Pickford curls.  Also, there was pretty much one basic costume that was worn to indicate the 19th century, and this costume usually resembled a robe de style.  It was also paired with Mary Pickford ringlets, and often with mary janes.

The site says it’s from about 1820, but I think it’s probably from about 1825 or later.
