My Fair Lady

The 1960s were all about being mod- sharp, sophisticated, and individual. It's like the demure ways of the 1950s had color exploding inside of them ready to burst out in the 1960s. Tie-dye, short skirts, and bright colors took over.

On the Waterfront

The hourglass figure of the 1940s continued into the 1950s with a large emphasis on the waistline. In the 1950s people were beginning to become comfortable on their own style not feeling like they needed to conform to societies standards. Because of that many took inspiration for the 1920s and dressed in a looser form referred to as a "sack dress."

Gone With the Wind

The  fun ways of the 1920s turned into more conservative and sophisticated styles in the 1930s. Factory made clothing was becoming popular. They were made out of less expensive materials that were considered "rough" fabrics. Yet, the dresses had a very femine, form fitting silhouette. Women were expected to even wear dresses at home. The Great Depression was no excuse for frumpiness!

1920s fashion was all about having fun and trying new things. Styles loosened up, woman stepped out in pants for the first time, and it was considered to be one of the most glamorous decades in history.  Luxurious textiles were becoming affordable and it was popular to make your own clothes. The most distinct  thing about 20s fashion is the silhouettes, they were flat and straight.
