Flapper Blouses: 1920's Fashion

The 1920's flapper wore a dropped waistline that inspired a new type of blouse silhouette. This look was the first of its kind. Worn untucked, it was modern and easy to wear.

The blouses shown here are white silk, each with its own distinct silhouette. From an embroidered peasant blouse inspiration at the top, to a draped Art Deco design, and a summery cape collar top at the bottom, each style showed the modern flapper girl's aesthetic.


This post is part of a series on women's fashions of 1929, in celebration of "The Artist".
Most illustrations are from "Fashionable Dress", August 1929

I love 1920s blouses, but they are one of the hardest ever garments to find. They must have worn them to death, or the fabric (often silk) just didn't hold up. Those are so pretty!

You are right. I can guess that the blouses were re-fit in the 30's and were worn out by 1945!
