1920s Women's Fashion Articles
Women's fashion in 1920 was all about the flappers. These
liberal, 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 popular curves
of early generations for straight lines and loose clothing.
Although seemingly harmless by today's standards, women's
fashion in 1920 was controversial and looked upon with disapproval
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
