At 16, my grandma bobbed her hair, and her dad gave her a good cussing. That was 1925, and he was not amused. Her clothes were dresses that DID look like a potato sack, and as the Depression came about, probably WERE made of those sacks at times. I thought she was beautiful, and she never wore makeup, because first, the expense, second, the impracticality, as she picked cotton to feed her children. A bob would have been practical in the hot sun, and she told me she wore an old bonnet to keep the sun off her face. Also, VERY practical. Thanks for the video, and for keeping it honest and real.

I once wore, to a wedding, an off white textured mid-calf cotton dress with a dropped waist at the hips and a dark blue straw hat with a shoulder width brim. Quite 1920s, I think.

Really interesting clip. I like the point you make that hemlines were never above the knee and even mid-calf lengths were shocking................because of what went before. Seems so obvious now.

The look of "wavy long hair" was another "hollywood movies" perpetration. Mary Pickford often played characters with the long wavy hair. It was seen as "romantic".

mas os anos 1920 que vc retrata voce fala das mulheres de uma vida burguesa e estavel. o estilo com brilho,penas e plumas vem dos cabares de antigamente

Yes so true! You have to se fashion in comparisson with the past not the future. Also I love how you mentioned that fashion came gratually, not in snap. Not everyone was up to date in a day.

Exactly. Mini skirts didn't hit my country town till the 70s, so by then we had a choice of mini, midi and maxi. Minis were a London thing in the 60s.

The 1920s looked better on drawings than in real life. A silhouette almost impossible to achieve, the androgynous ideal. But we have an exception to the rule, La Robe de Style de Lanvin, some sort of 18th centuriesque revival.

I've got a few 1920 things from my grandmother, who went out dancing the Black Bottom skipping shorthand classes. They include quite a few gloves; she had to get them from Paris as her hands were so small. Mostly, they are shorter and were in loads of different colours.
Psychonauts Mês atrás
I have to push back on this a little. Although it's true dark makeup wasn't an everyday look for most people it was considered fashionable especially for artsy crowds. Also gloves were a staple for the wealthy for evening events, as well as pearls. Fringes and feathers were also definitely in. It's true that a lot of this was more seen in hollywood or magazines and obviously daily outfits were a lot more subdued however these things were popular at the time. I also agree that the modern costume with the feather band, gloves and fringe is a bit contrived but there is definitely some truth to these elements.

She keeps talking like she was there, which is clearly evidence she actually studied the stuff propperly and has a vivid idea of each era. the vampire joke was taken, so I subverted it and instead drew attention to the hard work she's done, which deserves apprechiation.

Those low curved heels were called Cuban heels... and I still love them! The wonderful "Granny shoes" ( with great arch support ) were oxfords with cuban heels.

I suspect that, like all eras, people wore a variety of styles. Many would no doubt have continued to wear the clothes they had always worn whilst others adopted new styles readily. I looked after women who still wore old fashioned undies similar to those worn in the 1910's - in the 1980's!! Also, our 21st century penchant for throw away clothing did not exist. Clothes were expensive and mostly hand made or home made - so people kept them for years. Even when I was a teenager in the 70's it was cheaper to make clothes than to buy them and we had fewer clothes.

So I’m going to a 1920s party and I was referencing to some 1920’s pictures and what everyone wore would make me look about 2 feet tall, the only stuff that wouldn’t would basically be cabaret/burlesque wear but I don’t wanna show up to a 20s party looking like a stripper. Please help.

Not a good fashion era. Stuff was just ugly. Now the 1930s and 40s were very cool. I used to collect vintage and had several 1930s evening dressing and a few Pre 1920 dresses all of which I loved. I donated them during a move. Just had too much stuff but still regret it.

potato bags??? the art nouveau/liberty/jugendstiele is the best and original creation, giving an immediate sense of luxury with that mix of fabric design and decoration, involving such an extent to jewels for hair and the head never seen anymore .. women like queens.

I so wish I'd asked either or both of my grandmothers so many more questions about when they were young when I had the chance to ask. Had they lived, they'd both be well over 100. The one did live to 96, the other died at 65 (a year younger than I am right now). I know both of them had fathers who were barbers, which is interesting, because they were "country" people here in Ohio. They came from conservative types yet were not religious. I think for both my grandmothers, it was about getting out and away from their folks to find jobs in the city. They married young, had kids early, the hubbies got good factory jobs after the war, worked hard, and they were basically set for life. What I do know is that I'm very thankful I had a good childhood and plenty of attention as the oldest grandchild on both sides and good memories. What's sad is that there is nobody left in the family now to ask.

At 1920s-themed parties, it's alway flappers and gangsters lol. I think one of the reasons for all the misinformation about 1920s fashion is Hollywood. Film fan magazines and the "cult of Hollywood" often pushed the flapper look, sometimes even going so far as to show above the knee. Though that was pretty rare. But plenty of actresses who got a lot of coverage in magazines didn't wear "flapper clothes." Even looking through trendy fashion magazines, most women's clothing was still pretty conservative and more elegant than sexy. I hope more people watch this video and the myth finally goes away. Flapper fashion or not, it's still pretty cool and should be appreciated.

I appreciate this video. She brings up great points. Some such as movies and photography that we may see and not fully understand, such as the impact of the film quality, or people getting hand-me-down clothing. There is so much information about a topic that we may interpret incorrectly if we are just looking at a small piece.

dear miss zebrowska - i do like your videos; they are informative, fun, educational... but, please, allow me one slight suggestion, from a linguistic point of view. your english is very nearly excellent, you obviously have a good "ear" and seem to have picked up the american mode of expression quite well. you also seem to have picked up a language parasite - i am, like, referring, like, to the, like, excessive, like, use of the, like, word "like". this is called a filler and it is quite an unnecessary part of speech, usually, like "er" or "umm", serving the purpose of buying time, or filling the empty space. unfortunately, though rarely perceived by speakers, it can be very annoying and even alienating to listeners. it can also make the speaker appear to be less educated or less intelligent than he/she would desire to appear. i hope i have not offended, that was never my intention, i merely offered a bit of professional advice i thought you could benefit from. best of luck!

A few years ago I had a school dance and it was 20’s theme and so many girls wore these tiny dresses. I’m not judging them on the fact that they wore short dresses but it makes me so sad that I was one of the only people wearing something as historically accurate at all. I’m also not trying to say “ I’m not like other girls” I’m just saying it sucks that it looked like a such a disaster. Btw Happy Holidays!

Okay just one small comment I want to make. I am not an expert at dress history but when you study archeology you learn one small principle: the fact that something new came doesn't mean that the old one stopped existing. So yeah I agree with you that it is wrong to wear skin-tight thigh-long black sleeveless dresses and pretend being 1920s. I agree with you for most part of the video. I just want to point out that "historically accurate" does not necessarily imply that people pulled a switch and changed their dressing style. Late 1910s dresses and accessories must have continued existing and either be reformed or worn as they were (you pointed out the detail with the hat which is really important too) Being fashionable and being historically accurate are not necessarily the same thing. Right now you see people be dressed vintage or wearing dresses inspired by 1950s and 90s etc even though we are in 2020s. Also there are pictures of the time of women with wavy hair (mostly actresses that's true) as well as more details in makeup. I suppose it has also to do with the social and parental background of each woman There were women who wanted to be fashionable and women who remained old-fashioned so yeah Juat to clarify I am not criticizing you by any means since you are far more expert in dresses than I am just sometimes I get a lot of talk of absolute stuff regarding each Era so yeah I hope that makes sense. Thanks for your entertaining and informing videos Greetings from Greece!

I absolutely love and appreciate the history and learning of the accuracy of what they actually wore. But if you are ever invited to a "1920s themed" party you do not have to stress out about being historically accurate unless you absolutely want to. Dressing up in theme parties is just for fun. Have fun with it. Wear what makes you feel comfortable, fun, flirty and pretty. Lol

Your friend was going for the "Flapper Girl" look haha, but I don't think it was something to consider as normal in that time teeheehee ^^ I knew alot about this fashion but you come with alot of extra details that I didnt know yet, like the make up for films. Wish we could go back to the time where we didnt have to show so much skin :) Edit: OK THE CAT DOESNT SEEM TO AGREE. CAT KNOWS BEST SO LETS ALL WEAR MINISKIRTS AND HIGH HEELS!!!!!!!1111

As a black woman, for my 1920s fashions I'll either wear my hair in a bun or curls, which is quite acceptable. + I can't cut my afro-textured hair off, because it'll take a very long time for my hair to grow back. + Braids is also acceptable as well for this fashion.

Yeah, the chest minimizing shapewear was the biggest myth that my family definitely never forgot about. My great-grandmother was a very busty lady and had to wear at least one, if not two minimizers as a result. The photos of her in teacher's college in the 1910s where she "daringly and shockingly showed her ankle" is one of the sources I go back to when trying to frame that fashions change progressively, and even though the "young and fashionable" lady may be on trend or ahead of widespread trends, it's not reflective of the masses.

Well I have actually studied the 1920s a fair bit (though I'm not at all a style and fashion expert like yourself) and there was an element of women wearing shorter skirts in their teens. It was considered shocking to their elders. Obviously this was not mainstream and definitely not for grown women (even "original Flapper" Zelda Fitzgerald started wearing longer dresses after her marriage before she had her daughter). But yeah, plenty of black and white photos of girls - mostly in their mid-to-late teens , high school/college age - of these young women showing some knee.
