It celebrated dance, freedom of movement and liberation. It is as wearable today as it was back then, 100 years ago - the era that was to become known as the 'Roaring Twenties'.
I have tried to re-interpret the 20s into a wearable, modern-day look for both day and night.
For the daytime version, I've used a tongue-in-cheek pair of mustache print socks and soft grey leather brogues, as well as a boxy briefcase to keep the practical and masculine edge to the pretty faux-drop waist dress. I have then updated the decade's famous string of pearls into a collar of disarrayed, multicoloured pearls and topped the whole off with a demure grey cloche hat.
The evening look features a sumptiously decadent teal silk dress with fringing to show off every sinuous movement. Elegant two-tone heels, golden tassel earrings and a pearl encrusted clutch keep vibes of the 20s alive. Finally, what 20s gal would be seen out and about on the town sans red lipstick and a spritz of No. 5?
