1920’s blouses. Beautiful romantic pastels with even more beautiful beading and embroidery decorations. Sweaters were long loose shawl collar knits in bold patterns or stripes for a sporty varsity look. Sigh, if only I had a closet full of them. Since I don’t the next best thing is a modern blouse and sweater with a vintage 20’s style to it.
Sheer peasant tops are authentic to the 1920s and often have folk art inspired designs. Middy tops were sailor style shirts worn with teens and sport young women. Sailor tie blouses are also great options for 1920s style blouses. And if you favor the early years pintuck or lace inset blouse will give you the late teens/early 20’s style (as worn on Downton Abbey.) Read more about 1920s blouse history here and sweaters here.
Pair any of these new 1920’s style tops with a long tapered or shorter pleated skirt for a vintage twenties day wear look.
