“I wasn’t actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.” ― F. Scott FitzgeraldThe Great Gatsby

Compared to generations past, women in the roaring twenties began to increasingly use fashion to express themselves and empower their image. Beaded dresses, long gloves and lace paired with pearls, floppy hats and fur coats became staples in every woman’s closet. Women began experimenting with color, highlighting soft pastels and ivory white with royal blue, black and wine-colored accents.
