Women in the 1920s weren’t always wearing dresses. The two-piece outfit – a skirt and blouse – became everyday clothing in an Art Deco lady’s closet.
The early twenties saw long column plaid skirts, followed by pleated mid-knee skirts in the mid-1920s (the Gatsby skirt era), and handkerchief hem chiffon skirts in the later years. Worn with a delicate sheer blouse for day wear, a beaded top for evenings, and a loose cardigan sweater for a sporty look, 20s skirts were the versatile and affordable fashion of the era. Thanks to a renewed interest in 20s fashion, the vintage pleated skirt has experienced a recent revival. Read more about the history of 1920s skirts here.
