Through the Decades: 1920's fashion

The 1920's were a real turning point for women. Corsets and bustles began to be done away with, and this gave designers much more freedom to experiment with different designs, colors, and looks. Women from this time are known for their accessorizing. Hats, hairnets, shoes, handbags, and jewelry were all flashy and coordinated. Hemlines became shorter than ever before. Flapper girls wore dresses at the knee, which was very scandalous at the time. But although hemlines were rising, waistlines were getting lower.

The original black and white pictures from this time do not do the clothing justice. Clothing from the 1920's were bright and vibrant. Pantsuits and canes for women were also becoming very popular. Coco Chanel introduced the first dress made out of jersey-knit, and the first LBD. The "bob" was also introduced for the very first time by actress Louise Brooks, and soon became all the rage.

The 20’s straight silhouette, flashy colors, fur, and feathers still inspire designers today. The girls living at this time were getting more and more independent, which was a major turning point for women in the US. I love 1920's fashion so much! It is so glamorous and fun at the same time. The girls at this time really loved to play dress up.

Designers from this decade:

-Coco Chanel

-Jean Lanvin

-Jean Patou

-Paul Poiret

About me

I started Dressing Up In Daisies about four years ago for the purpose of sharing my opinions, ideas, and personal style on the internet, rather than keeping them bottled up in my head. In my first post on Dressing Up In Daisies, my then thirteen year old self said, “Fashion is about taking risks, and dressing up for yourself, and no one else. Ever since I was two years old, my favorite game to play has been dress up...and it still is. The amazing thing about this game is that you get to play it every single morning, so why not have some fun with it? Wear some massive heels, opt for the leopard coat, throw some daisies in your hair. Whatever your mood is that day.”

This statement is something I continue to stand by, and will for the rest of my existence. I believe it is important to show the world that fashion should celebrate the beauty in risk-taking and oddities, which vastly transcends the limitations of "trends" and other rules often imposed by members of the fashion industry.

I use my blog to connect to the world of fashion that I know I’ll be a part of one day. Feel free to leave comments with feedback, or click the "contact" link above to email me.
