By the 1920’s, women were increasingly spending more time outside in the country, and wearing clothes that they were more comfortable with.
The clothing of the time, according to one study, was made of wool and silk, and in many ways, women’s outfits were far more feminine and “dressed for the world outside,” according to the book Fashion for Women’s Families: 1900 to the Present by Mary Jo Williams.
The same study found that in some cases, women didn’t even wear clothes made of leather at all.
Women in the 1920 to 1930s were increasingly opting for casual clothing, including skirts and dresses, to fit in with their everyday life.
The trend continued into the 1950s and 1960s.
But while the women’s fashion and apparel of the era were pretty basic, the style continued to evolve and expand as the decade progressed.
