Nearly 100 years later, these outfits nonetheless look superb


The way we see it, it's no surprise that fashion from the 1920s is still so rich and inspiring almost a century later. After all, there's a reason the Decade got this 1920's nickname from Roaring. And even a small look at the women who advocated the aesthetics of the era will deliver outfit ideas in spades, be it from the classic flapper look that preferred less figure-defining shapes (and shameless amounts of pearls) or themselves Icons like Marlene Dietrich opposed gender norms.

The most fascinating thing about this era is that their fashion didn't seem to fit into one shape – women of the 1920s could pile on the extras or opt for minimalism. And like so many of us today, they could use style to express and celebrate their identity. Now that we are in 2020 and a whole century after the 1920s, these looks and the values ​​that permeated them are as relevant today as they were 100 years ago. Scroll down to revisit some of our favorite looks from the 1920s.
