1920 Style Clothes and Accessories for Men and Women
1920s fashion centered around the revolution of freedom in clothing and morals. Both men’s and women’s 1920s clothing broke out of the prim and proper mold of Victorian ideals and into free spirited casual wear. Fashion in the roaring twenties gained comfort while showing off an entirely new and outrageous use of color and decoration. The prohibition era has become the “new” vintage revival thanks to several TV shows, movies and mini series depicting life in the 1920s such as Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries and The Great Gatsby.
