1930’s Photography & Fashion, Turbans, Shingle Hair & Fur Coat

1930s-deco-shingle wave hair 0021930s-turbanDURING THE 1920S NEW, LIGHT MACHINE AGE FABRICS, WERE COMING INTO FASHION & HEMLINES WERE GETTING DARINGLY SHORT. HOWEVER DURING THE 1930’S SKIRTS WERE LENGTHENING & FASHIONS WERE A LITTLE MORE REFINED & CONSERVATIVE. CLOCHE HATS WERE REPLACED WITH PERFECTLY COIFFED HAIR & TURBANS WERE COMING INTO THEIR OWN. EYEBROWS WERE SHAVED OR PLUCKED & PENCILED ON IN THIN HIGH ARCHES.

 

FABULOUS FLAPPERS

THE FABULOUS FLAPPER LADIES & GENTLEMEN HAD SUCH FABULOUS FASHION SENSE. THE LADIES WERE EMANCIPATED FROM OLD FASHIONED CONSTRICTIVE CLOTHS, NO MORE CORSETS & LONG SKIRTS. HAIR WAS WORN SHORT & HATS WERE FASHIONABLE & PRACTICAL.

THESE FABULOUS RETRO FASHION PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A REMINDER OF AN ERA THAT WAS COMMONLY KNOWN AS THE JAZZ AGE.
