Although the 1920s and 1930s are often lumped together as the period “between the wars,?the two decades were quite different in character and styles of dress varied greatly.
The 1920s were the Jazz Age, a period of escapism after the horrors of World War I. The younger generation, especially, turned their backs on the formality and dark, buttoned-up clothing of the previous century. On both sides of the Atlantic, life was now fun, one seemingly endless party. With Europe still recovering from the war and repaying debts, the United States took the lead in new technology. Mass manufacturing made consumer goods cheaper and more accessible. New fabrics seemed to be invented every week - rayon, known as “art silk,?nylon, and many more.
In 1929, the Wall Street stock market crash brought the age of reckless partying to an abrupt end. The 1930s began with a widespread economic depression and unemployment and ended with the world at war again. It was a sober period, albeit with welcome touches of glamour for some.
This text brings together some of the most popular styles and dominant trends of the 1920s and 1930s and demonstrates how to achieve the look - from free-spirited flapper to Clark Gable look-alike. Some period pieces can still be found in thrift shops and secondhand sales. Others can be tracked down via the Internet, where auction sites often have vintage pieces selling for low prices. Other items you can make quite simply. Since the 1970s, there have been several revivals of elements of 1920s and 1930s fashions, and these more modern pieces make acceptable substitutes.
