The 1920s saw many changes in fashion as it was the decade when women abandoned the restricting fashions of past and began to wear more comfortable clothes. Two different  periods of fashion characterised the 1920s. Throughout the early years of the 20s, change was slow, as many were hesistant to try new styles. From 1925, the public began to embrace the styles of the time reffered to as the roaring 20s. Women still wore dresses that reached the floor and covered their arms before the 2os. The time period of the flapper played an influential rule in changing women’s fashion drastically.
