Known as the “roaring twenties,” this was a time of extravagance. From feathers, to sequins, to faux fur, the 20s were all about living the good life. Drop-waisted dresses and rolled down stockings were also big trends!
Compared to the flashy 20s, the 1930s were a lot more modest, if I may say so. But they had their own brand of luxury! Bias-cut pieces were all the rage, as were velvet and satin, which are back in style!
The 1940s were really girly—tea dresses, florals, and hats were the pieces of choice. Bold, bright red was also a big part of style during this time.
The 1950s were all about the skirts. All the cool girls were wearing circle skirts, petticoats, and wiggle dresses. And of course, Marilyn Monroe was the cool girl to rule them all in the 50s. If you need style inspiration, she’s your girl!
Personally, I love 60s style! It’s my favorite decade because on one side they had the stylish elegance and grace of Jackie O, but the 60s was also a very fun time. Go-go boots, mini skirts, capes, and bright colors made fashion young and hip.
