Women's underwear changed as a result of this move towards practical clothing, with corsets becoming smaller and more flexible, and bras being introduced. Flappers, as the trendy young women were called in the U.S., wore short dresses with a straight loose silhouette. By 1927 seams had risen to just below the knee, so that part of the knee could be seen when dancing the Charleston.

Flapper Fashion - How fashion changed in the 1920's. Pictures showing the costume history of roaring twenties, cloche hats, hair and clothes. Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel

The great fashion designer Gabrielle Chanel 1883-1971 self styled herself to be known as Coco Chanel. By 1920 the silhouette of her clothing designs have come to be the epitome of 20's style. The work of other famous designers beside hers seemed old fashioned and outmoded belonging as they did to the pre World War One era.

She promoted the styles we associate with flappers. She worked in neutral tones of beige, sand, cream, navy and black in soft fluid jersey fabrics cut with simple shapes that did not require corsetry or waist definition. They were clothes made for comfort and ease in wear making them revolutionary and quite modern. She was the Jean Muir or Donna Karan of her day and the originator of the LBD - that little black dress.

- short hair was hygenic. 

 

 

 

 

The present bobbed hair vogue began during the World War. Practically all the women who drove ambulances had their hair cut for reasons of sanitation and convenience. Gradually other women in French civil life, as well as those engaged in auxiliary military duties, Red Cross Work, etc., adopted this simple, practical, youthful hair style.

1920's Dresses were lighter and brighter and shorter than ever before. Fashion designers played with fabric colors, textures and patterns to create totally new styles of dress. Hemlines rose for most of the decade but dropped slightly toward the end. Shoes and stockings assumed a greater prominence now that they were more visible. Silk stockings in all the colors of the rainbow, often with patterns, were designed to match the coordinated outfits of stylish women.

History Reference Center: Coco (Gabrielle) Chanel

French fashion designer. She was renowned as a trendsetter and her designs have been copied worldwide. She created the “little black dress,” the informal cardigan suit, costume jewelry, and perfumes.

Her designs were inspired by her personal wish for simple, comfortable, and practical clothes. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s her look was widely influential; the basic ingredients were cardigans, woolen jersey dresses, the “little black dress,” bell‐bottom pants, and costume jewelry. Popular colors were gray, navy blue, black, and beige for the day, while for the evening she preferred white, black, and pastel shades. She closed her workshop in 1939 and did not return to fashion until 1954 when she began showing her classic suits again in soft tweed and jersey, often collarless and trimmed with braid and shown with costume jewelry such as artificial pearls or gilt chains. She continued working until her death.
