Description
The 1920s bustled with jazz music, fast cars, and glamorous movie stars, and fashion was at the forefront of this explosion of popular culture—bright young things donned short skirts and cloche hats, gents dressed in sharp tweed suits and spats, and even children's clothing was given a thorough overhaul. In this concise yet detailed history, with more than 80 captioned photos, ads, and illustrations of the day, Jayne Shrimpton explains the various elements that shaped British fashion in the 1920s, including the strong influences of Paris and Hollywood. Shrimpton, a fashion historian and former archivist for the National Portrait Gallery, also looks at the dress of the common people, and those who opted to dress conservatively in this age of "anything goes."

"Richly illustrated with both high fashion costume plates and advertisements from newspapers of the time.... Details of the changes in style and cut during the 1920s, including the influence of film on fashion, beauty and cosmetics, is clearly and succinctly explained with accompanying illustrations.... Accessible, informative and an excellent overview of 1920s fashion across a wide range of social classes."—Vintage Fashion Guild
