The time between the wars, the 1920 and 1930s, differed from each other in almost every respect. “The Roaring ’20s” ushered in a period of optimism and frivolity, complete with daring fashions for women that broke from the Victorian standard of dress. With the stock market crash of 1929, the 1930s were markedly more subdued. As the United States struggled through the Great Depression, the somber tones were reflected in people’s everyday wear, though cinematic stars still wore dazzling outfits. The 1920s and 1930s details how men and women dressed during the periods between World War I and World War II, giving ample examples of the style of costumes and fashions popular at the time.
