Fashion has always been an integral part of our lives, something that adds culture and colors to our lives. Over the years, the fashion industry has changed dramatically, with new and exciting fashion icons that set new trends – from Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe to Lady Gaga and Kendall Jenner. With New York’s fashion week around the corner, followed by London fashion week and Paris fashion week, we take a look down memory lane at the most iconic fashion trends of the past decades.
1920s: Short hair, don’t care
Some of the prominent names of the fashion world in the 1920s are Marlene Dietrich, Norma Shearer and Gloria Swanson, all American actresses. The brand name Coco Chanel, to this day one of the biggest names in the fashion industry, started its way in the 1920s and set the trend of women suits – a skirt and a matching jacket.
The “office” suits were coupled with the trendy bob haircut – it was very uncommon seeing women with long hair these days – covered by the iconic cloche hat. The hats were worn by women both for everyday, casual wear and for nighttime outings, in which case they were paired with simple, silk gowns or fringed flapper dresses – the ones we’re all familiar with from Hollywood depictions.
