Little black dresses, 1920s


Little black dresses, 1920s, originally uploaded by Gatochy.

Scanned from "Decades of Fashion" by Harriet Worsley. Click image for 970 x 968 size.

From the book: "The plain black dress by Bernard (above, left) draws attention to the rosette motif at the hip and the decorative buckles on the shoes. An embroidered belt has matching cuff detail (above, centre) which resembles a fashionable row of bracelets. The dress is by the House of Jenny. The tiered pleats of crêpe de chine of this Phillippe & Gaston dress (above, right) help to soften the silhouette."

I just discovered your blog, and it's lovely! All the old pictures are really inspiring style-wise. I especially love the layered dress in this post!

I love little black dresses. I wish the cloche hats were back in fashion.
