What was fashion like in the 1930s?

The lighthearted, forward-looking attitude and fashions of the late 1920s lingered through most of 1930, but by the end of that year the effects of the Great Depression began to affect the public, and a more conservative approach to fashion displaced that of the 1920s. For women, skirts became longer and the waistline was returned up to its normal position in an attempt to bring back the traditional "womanly" look. Other aspects of fashion from the 1920s took longer to phase out.Cloche hats remained popular until about 1933 while short hair remained popular for many women until late in the 1930s. The cloche hat is a fitted, bell-shaped hat that was popular during the 1920s. (Cloche is the French word for bell).

How did World War 1 affect women's fashion in America during the 1920s and 1930s?

Fashion has always had a pretty short memory. The 1920s saw lots of money sloshing around, lots of breaks with tradition and generational disagreement between "flappers" and "matrons." By the 1930s, economic trouble meant that fashion fell pretty low on most people's lists of priorities. Certainly the end of the Great War was a distant influence by then.

What major changes of fashion occurred in 1920?

In 1919, Women in the United States gained the right to vote and were liberated from many previous restrictions of the past. Before the 1920s, women wore plain floor length dresses with tight corsets and had very long hair. A fashion revolution occurred in the 1920s. Women wore knee length dresses, bobbed their hair and pile themselves with accessories such as long pearl necklaces, gloves and headbands. Fur, sequins, fringe, diamonds and feathers were abundant in fashion. The glamorous fashion reflected the booming economy also known as "the roaring twenties".
