Women's fashion in 1920 was all about the flappers. These
irreverent, free-thinking women wore short skirts, short haircuts,
sheer stockings--and, most shockingly--make-up. The style
of the flapper is most often described as being youthful and
boyish, as these young women were abandoning the corsets of
their mother's generation for straight lines and loose clothing.
lthough seemingly harmless by today's standards, women's
fashion in 1920 was controversial and seen as shocking and
barbaric by conservative men and women. Prior to the flapper
movement, ladies kept their legs covered and abstained from
drinking or smoking, especially in public. Now, young women
were exercising their independence and developing an entirely
new fashion statement.
