50 Vintage Found Photos Defined Fashion Styles of Women in the 1920s

The Jazz Age was a golden era of fashion. After the end of The Great War, women wanted simple, more comfortable clothing that would reflect the modern age and the active new woman. Fashion as always reflects the desires of the young, and the free spirited youths discarded their corsets and raised their skirts to show off their dancing legs in rolled stockings.

The 1920s are characterized by two distinct periods of fashion: in the early part of the decade, change was slower, and there was more reluctance to wear the new, revealing popular styles. From 1925, the public more passionately embraced the styles now typically associated with the Roaring Twenties. These styles continued to characterize fashion until the worldwide depression worsened in 1931.

Take a look at these vintage photos to see what women wore in the 1920s.
