1920s and Charleston fashion
The 1920s were a breakthrough for women, and the fashion of that time is still admired. Very often you will meet a party, ball or party in the style of the 20s or 30s and Charleston.
And because some period dresses have returned to fashion, many of our professional Latin dance dresses are made for these 1920s costumes.
Now let's take a closer look at each season:
The post-war period brings huge relaxation. For women, this time was literally a breakthrough, they gained voting rights after the war, they can earn (and spend) their money, they can study freely, go to bars, smoke and be challenged. Various earlier social taboos are falling. Women can make up and dress up prominently.
The fashion of the 1920s is very relaxed, comfortable, the so-called boy's cut is preferred and girls with a boyish figure are preferred.
The stage shows the famous Coco Chanel (real name Gabrielle Chanel born in 1883 in France), who was a French fashion designer who throws away women's petticoats and corsets and is seen as the greatest personality in the field of modern women's wardrobe.
Coco Chanel caused a huge revolution in the clothing industry, and the fashion companies built had more than 3,500 employees in the 1930s.
We were inspired by one of their quotes in this e-shop and it reads:
"You can buy fashion, but you have to have style." Coco Chanel
Dresses and accessories in the style of the 20s
The dress has been significantly shortened since the 1920s and most often reaches the knees. Deep necklines and loose backs and under bras that flatten the bust but in the middle with the tip, so that the breasts have a small but pointed shape.
The dresses are most often decorated with fringe and sequins or lace and strass. Long necklaces made of artificial pearls are worn loosely or tied in knots. Various decorated headbands over the forehead, feather ornaments, exotic bracelets on the hands, forearms and arms. Feathers or furs hanging loosely over the shoulders are also popular, as are satin gloves. The shoes are worn on a lower comfortable heel with an ankle strap to keep them well on their feet when dancing. The most popular dance of this time is Charleston and Shimmy.
The boyish look stands out even more in the hairstyle of the 1920s, the hairstyle of the 1920s was smooth, short, most often interspersed with wool on the front, sharply finished and bordered, thus emphasizing a distinctly make-up face. This hairstyle is also called Bubikopf and has returned to fashion more than once.
So what about a themed party?
For your perfect outfit for a party in the style of the 1920s, we recommend choosing a fringe dress according to your preferences - you can find it HERE. Our dresses are not carnival, it is a professional dance dress, the dress is elastic in all directions, stitched elastic elastic and with cuts comfortable to dance. They are primarily made for Latin-American dances, but their cut also fits perfectly into the style of 20's fashion.
