1920s (America's Decades), The

John F. Wukovits
The 1920s saw radical changes in dress such as the drop waist, the bias cut, beading, the flapper, the diamond choker, and the cigarette-holder. It was perhaps the first "modern" decade of the 20th century. This book is part of a series charting the development of women's and men's clothing from 1900 onwards. It includes complete descriptions of each garment and accessories, itemizing colour, cut, necklines, lapels, sleeves, pockets, fastenings, buttons and belts. The year-by-year format progresses through day wear, evening wear, sportswear, leisurewear, underwear, negligee and wedding wear. The text is accompanied by costume drawings by John Peacock, and includes a chart summarizing the evolution of fashion, garment shapes, and biographies of the outstanding designers of the decade.
