In a nut shell, 1920s fashion for women was all about getting loose, which applied to morals, too. Dresses were sleeveless, shapeless, long or short slip gowns accented with beading, sequins, fringe, and some feathers.  Add to that some lavish accessories, such as a diamond tiara or headband, silk shawl, feather fan, long pearl necklaces, and gold arm bangles, and you will look like a silent movie star!

A headband or other hair decoration is a must have piece of jewelry for a 1920s evening affair. They were made of beads or crystals and even strings of pearls wrapped around the head. Some women went as far as to wear a tiara. 


Gentelmen 1920s Suits
