1920's Fashion

During this era U.S. history was changing...World War I had ended and women were granted the right to vote... =>Enter the Flapper! She was a liberal and free-thinking woman who wore short skirts, sheer stockings, had a short hair cut, which was also known as "the bob" which many times was styled in a finger waive. And she wore drastically dark makeup with art deco jewelry. The Flapper was considered youthful and boyish, as they abandoned curves and restricted corsets for a more loose fitting dress with strait lines. Flappers were pioneers in many ways, and fashion was just used (as it was intended to be) as an outlet for expression. I think for the flapper; her style was an expression of change, freedom, and liberation. She herself allowed her fashion to be an expression of free thinking. It was the fashion that flipped upside down the idea of femininity and allowed women to take control over what it expresses about them as individuals and as American women.

To Anonymous who hate jews. Its a shame that in 2012, almost 70 years after the second world war, several decades of years after the murder of millions of people in Europe (because jews are also human beings!!) and after the world recognized how much Hitler was truly disturbed, there is still people believing of some kind of white/aryan superiority. i just feel pity for short-minded/old mentality that you have. You need to travel, see the world and the beauty in each and everyone instead of focusing in your own race and anger on others who didn't do anything to you!
Cheers from a Catholic! x

Great Article, and great photos!

Anonymous - I feel really appalled at your comments. You are so filled with hatred. Focusing your energy on something meaningful will get you further than commenting extremely negative, awful comments on fashion websites.

I am in total agreement with Maria.
