Historically, uniforms have been the product of a sailor's environment: Uniforms were provided for protection against the elements or to create distinction among specialists in a growing Navy.
Foremost, however, was an element of simplicity providing a uniform that would not interfere with the sailor's everyday tasks. Women's uniforms, on the other hand, were designed to duplicate civilian fashion trends. Today's Navy has narrowed the gap. Women now perform many of the same tasks and have the same specialties as their male counterparts. These changes necessitated a more definitive policy to bring the uniforms of both men and women more closely in line with each other.
