Overview of Women's Wear
One of the major changes in women's fashion after World War 1 was that the women started to wear more masculine or athletic type of clothing that is more comfortable for them in the work force. For the women out there that still want the feminine look but want to be comfortable they made the tubular dress which was a shorter skirt with a slit on the side of it to make it easier for women to move around. Then women started to get bobbed hair cuts that was also part of the masculine looking trend. These hair cuts also fit nicely underneath the new hats that people found very risky in the beginning but beneficial in the end. Many famous men and women saw this as a sort of art movement the represented surrealism.
This look mainly pertained to the women with the more flatter chest and the ones without must hips or curves with short bobbed hair cuts. This trend also had a great affect on the women's rights because they saw it as a sign of empowerment looking like them men that would head the companies they worked for. Also the product of lingerie became more popular to the women so they had a more flexible and comfortable sort of undergarment. This look also gave women a sense of power and helped them start to express themselves for who they want to be not for what other people want them to be. In the 1920s was the first time in history when women started to show their legs in a more risky way by making slits in their dresses and having their dresses be hemmed above the knee.
