Everett Collection |

Fashion entered the modern era during the 1920s. The fashion trend in this decade was characterized by outfits that provided more freedom for movement. Women veered away from restrictive clothing in previous years and they started wearing comfortable clothes such as shorter and low-waist dresses, as well as revealing styles. Camisoles or loose-fitting undergarments replaced tight-fitting corsets from the Victorian era. Men also began wearing athletic clothing. Bobbed hairstyles, cloche hats, scarves and stockings with bold geometric patterns were also common during this decade. Here are several fashion snapshots from the 1920s in America.
