The Ever So Chic 1920s

Hello! Today on the blog, to introduce myself, I thought I would like to share with you one of my favorite vintage fashion trends. The 1920s was an era that always interested me, an era where women began to free themselves from the pressures of the Victorian era (i.e. those really uncomfortable corsets).

Art deco is one of the most intriguing styles of the 1920s, and personally one of my favorites. It was a dominant design until the late 1930s, not only in fashion but in many different creative art forms. Hollywood adopted the popular style, adapting it for the big screen. 

Many female icons of the 1920s were adorned in chic and stunning gowns, embellished with sequins and beads. Often outfits were matched with ‘cloche hats’ and the ever-classic bob haircut. There were many genius costumers in this era, Gilbert Adrian, Orry Kelly, and later Walter Plunkett; who designed amazing costumes for ‘Singin’ in the Rain’, set in the glamorous 1920s Hollywood. Major designers popped into the fashion scene in the 1920s; such as Chanel, Lanvin, and Elsa Schiaparelli. Their designs included chic geometric patterns, vibrant colors, and straight lines. The basics of their classic fashion are still staples in every woman’s closet today.
