"Fashion fades, style is eternal" -Coco Chanel
Friday, April 11, 2014
Recently, I have been doing a lot of studying on 1930s fashion. I know..studying, but hey, it's fashion! I found it extremely interesting that even during The Great Depression, people still managed to stay in style and found new ways to accessorize. Furs and costume jewelry was everything to some people. Hemlines were lowered and heels became a bit higher. Even swimsuits showed more skin, as it was very glamorous to tan. The "LBD" was also a popular piece as it was just recently created by Coco Chanel in 1926. Dresses were very important and gowns were worn often. As people began to mature, glamour played a larger role because people were grateful for the luxury things they still had. Since the fun of the 1920s had to go due to the economy crash, lifestyles became more moderate and styles were feminine. There is just something so special about this decade that inspired so much today. XOXO Raquel.
