Fashion in the 1920’s and 1990’s

In the 1920’s after World War 1 people entered a new era where they started to wear the clothing’s they liked and thought was in style. Young girls started to wear the fashionable hats called the “flappers”. They were hats that covered bobbed hair. The flappers described young girls as girls that had not entered womanhood. Women began to wear dresses that had shiny metallic threads and fabrics, things that caught people’s attention. As well as shorter skirts, backless dresses, bright colours and bold art decoration patterns. Then they started to cut their hair shorter. Women would wear belts on their waist and long necklaces to show more elegance. Men still wore the stylish sacque suit. They would change to different suits depending on what time of the day it was.

Women went from modern to retro; they began to wear famous named bran clothes such as Chanel and Roots. Big jeans, hooded sweaters and long-sleeved T-shirts were worn by boys. Big white ruffled shirts, long skirts, and lace –up boots were worn by teen girls. Another fashionable accessory women and males wore were piercings, but then more people started to pierce more parts of their bodies
