Clothes that Capture an Era

The Flapper dress style showed women's legs for the first time. In addition, sleeveless clothing was worn, for the first time, during the day.

The raccoon coat is synonymous with prohibition and open topped roadsters. Worn by young adult or college men, we can equate its progressive youthful style to bellbottoms of the 1960s and oversize clothing of the 1990s.
