Vintage fashion: The roaring twenties

March 16, 2013 | Vintage Fashion | 0 comments

Another trip down to retro fashion lane after the 1900-1915 retro trip. This time a flashback to the roaring twenties!

The bob, sequined dresses,head bands, fringe and pearls were keywords in that era.

What made the 1920s so roaring? Well, the jazz music became popular and Flappers made their lifestyle statement.

Flappers were young, western women who “rebelled” against the standard morals of the 1920s era. They “bobbed” their hair, wore short skirts and excessive make-up. Their lifestyle included everything that wasn’t considered acceptable behaviour including drinking, smoking and liberal social morals. They redefined the modern woman in the 1920s. And they did it very stylish…
