1920s Style

Have you ever heard of the flapper look or Gatsby style? Well this was the fashion trend back in 1920s where women’s style literally loosened up (unfitted dresses).

From skirts that rose above the ankle (1910), in 1920 the skirts got shorter (knee-length) and corsets came off, drop waist became popular, necklines were usually a “V” shape, fabrics were made from chiffon, light silks, soft velvet, and soft cotton.

I guess we have to be thankful to this era for it started simplicity in a very stylish way.

For a casual look ladies back then would wear something like this:

    • I wish I was part of that era too, Vievienne. Thank you. I found the clothes at a department store. Have seen the potential on that big floral dress and did some non permanent alterations to make it work. 🙂
