Siya Yadav - Placard English II Honors - Sollow In front of you, is a very popular piece of women’s fashion in the 1920s; a headpiece. The fashion in the 1920’s wasn’t only a way of expressing your style, but it also represented your status. Prior to the 20's, many women wore big bustles, s-shaped silhouettes and tight corsets. But as the 20's approached, young women, working women, and men wanted more comfortable and practical clothing. For women, skirts and boots were high demand and for men, looser fitting jackets were hitting the markets. Men's fashion would change time to time due to the weather conditions, as they would work outside. They would wear baggy clothing to hide liquor, as the 20’s was also known as the prohibition era. The materials that their clothing was made out of, such as raccoon or fox fur, would represent their social class and give them memberships into Ivy League clubs or fraternities. Notorious for rhineton beaded headbands, skullcaps, and feather hair clips, the 1920s women were all about the accessories.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
