It was a popular women's fashion in the 19th century in the United States. Colorful, braid-trimmed Zouave jackets became fashionable in the late 1850s and remained so well into the 1860s. Although generally out of fashion after the 1860s, it became locally popular again in some parts of the country towards the end of the 19th century.
