| The 1920ís clothes were
much different than the clothes of today. People wore hats which
were called flappers. The women usually wore skirts and dresses, and were
rarely seen in pants. They were also seen wearing hats called "cloches,"
and wore scarves around their neck.
Women wore many different styles of skirts. Skirts were made out of wool, silk, linen, and cotton. They put many different designs on their skirts such as candy, flowers, and even feathers.
A twenties couple enjoyed dressing in evening attire. Women wore dresses that stopped at her knees and had no waist line. This statement was called the "Flapper" look. As you can see in the picture below, men's fashion has not changed much through the decades.
men on the other hand did not have clothes that were as fashionable as
the women. The men that worked in the coal mine usually wore an old pair
of overalls and one of their old shirts because their clothes got very
dirty. It was hard to find any of these men in nice clothes. Other
men worked in the fields and wore clothes like a pair of overalls and T-shirts.
However, they rarely wore a shirt at all in the summer because of
the hot sun and heat.
