About this deal

Casual Outfits– When you don’t want to be a flapper, choose a casual look instead. This guide will give you ideas.

Avoid open-toe sandals or wedge heels if you want to be authentic. 1920s shoes had a mid-heel that was sturdy, not too thin, and came with straps — one, two or many. To properly answer the question “What did women and men wear in the 1920s?” would depend on what they were doing, with whom, and at what time of day. Here you will learn about the types of clothing women and men wore for specific occasions. Follow the links within for even more 1920s fashion history .

What are you going to wear?

A woman’s long hair, what had been for centuries her pride and joy, was now meeting cutting shears for the first time. The new look was the bob cut. Short, ear length curly hair in the early years gave way to smooth finger waved styles by 1930.

A feather fan, lace fan or paper fan was another dramatic handheld accessory. For daytime, a paper parasol was a popular beach or poolside accessory. Shop parasols and hand fans. Wristwatches were practical but highly decorated pieces of jewelry. Watch faces came in square or rectangle Art Deco designs covered in filigree. They were thin and dainty, much like a tennis bracelet in platinum, white gold, or sterling silver. Suspenders– Striped elastic suspenders or leather work suspender kept pants held up. A thin leather belt was also an option for casual outfits. Basic heeled pumps were also in style, so if you already have some in your closet, by all means, wear them. For daywear, look at walking Oxfords with a low heel.Gloves. Long over the elbow opera gloves for evenings and shorter mid arm leather, silk or mesh gloves for daytime. Shop gloves. How to Dress like a 1920s Flapper– Love the iconic flapper girl costume? Read this article for tips on staying authentic yet fun! Something that stands out to me about vintage fashion prior to the ’60s is how often wealthy men and women changed clothing in one day. There was an outfit for every time of day, every type of outing, and every type of party. Add to that specific types of clothing for your age, class, and occupation, and you have one huge wardrobe!

The first two years of the 1920s reflected the same fashion as the late Edwardian period with a natural waistline, full sleeves, and ankle length dresses. Fashions were easy to wear, pretty, and feminine.It was also common to wear a wide silk scarf like bands wrapped around the head but exposing the crown. These, like narrow ribbons, were sometime adorned with beads and feathers on the right side. Collar pin– Kept soft shirt collars down and neat. Cufflinks were also necessary to close french cuffs. Modern 20s. The skinny fit tweed suit is a modern vintage take on 20s fashion. Similar to Peaky Blinders suits with a low price.

A men’s dress shirt had a detachable white collar on a striped, colored shirt. You won’t find detachable collars anymore, but a white collared shirt is trendy right now. A white dress shirt or solid color is fine, too, but the striped shirts with white cuffs and collar really look vintage! Shop 1920s style men’s shirts here. Ten 1920s Outfit ideas– Looks inspired by the 1920s costumes in the Downton Abbey TV series. Day, sporty, summer and winter looks. Many historians say the ’20s flat chested look was inspired by young boys (La Garcone), yet if you look at 1910s girl’s clothing, you will see drop-waist dresses in the same styles that were made for women after 1922. 1920s women for all ages and sizes embraced these youthful girly looks and genderless identities that enabled them to live in a care-free manner, pursuing new hobbies and opening new doors for women’s rights. Wide shoes are available in comfort brands. See the section I found here. More Ladies’ Outfit Ideas

1970s and 1980s

In the media, makeup was still being talked about as a bad thing, yet the majority of young and middle-aged women were wearing at least face powder on a daily basis. Face lotions, potions and skin treatments were being marketed to correct skin imperfections, while makeup was seen as a tool to accent natural beauty — not cover up problems. Dance Shoes– T-strap and Mary Jane “Character” shoes are made for dancing. Your feet will thank you.
