Hello! Today is Friday and we are focused on fashion! Specifically fashion of the 1920s, it being Roaring Twenties week and all.
The twenties marks a new, less restrictive era, and that shows up in its fashion. Women began saying adios to restrictive corsets, ushering in the era of a more boyish figure. Hems were on the rise as women got the vote and began to work outside the home.
Of course even “casual” in the 1920s is way more formal than we are used to today.
Let’s face it, when people think of the Jazz Age, they think glitz, glamour and Gatsby.
As always, there are tons of resources if you want to learn more about 20s fashion and see more fun photos. Check some below:
We hope you liked this, and be sure to check back every Friday as we highlight a different era. Stay tuned for ticket info for our fun show Decadent: 100 years of Burlesque, coming up on April 22 at the Triad.
