In the mid 18th century a group of affluent, intellectual women led by the hostess Elizabeth Montagu formed a literary society in England which was referred to as "The Blue Stockings Society". Blue stockings were daytime or more informal wear and were also very fashionable for women in Paris at the time. Although it included both sexes until the late 18th century, the term "bluestockings" came to be subsequently applied primarily to educated intellectual women. The French equivalent "bas bleu" had a similar connotation.
