Today’s styles still owe a lot to the styles of the Roaring Twenties.

After the First World War people began to abandon formal styles in favour of comfort and character. Women started to wear short skirts and trousers and men began to dress more informally, and the suits men wear today are still largely based on the style of those adopted in the late 1920s.

This vintage outbreak marked a turning point in contemporary western fashion, and today’s styles still owe a lot to the styles of the Roaring Twenties.
