How is everyone doing this lovely Monday, well actually almost Tuesday!
Today, we’re going to dive into the 1920s fashion and I wanted to focus on one garment. I thought dresses of this decade would be fun to look back at.
The 1920s was a memorable decade for fashion since there was more freedom in women’s fashion (especially after the war) and the clothes definitely reflected that. A notable designer of this era was the fabulous Coco Chanel. I know if you’re like me, you think of her perfume.
During this time, Coco Chanel designed a two-piece dress out of stretchy jersey fabric that flowed against the body. Below is the actress Gloria Swanson, a silent movie star rocking Coco’s design.
Another popular dress in the 1920s was the signature flapper style dress. Shown below.
Below is a popular dress style, a dress with a dropped waist. This style of dress was more of an everyday dress.
In the early in the 1920s, formal wear dresses were extremely elaborate and some even had intricate beading.
In 1926, there was the straight dress, one of my favorite type of dresses of the 1920s!
That was a quick look at the history of 1920s dresses worn during this fun decade! I hope you enjoyed it. Next Monday, there will be more fashion history. Let me know which decade you would like to see next or a particular piece of clothing you would like me to feature.
P.S. Stay fabulous. 🙂
