Fashion in the nineteen twenties was all about comfort.  The men’s pants got wider and the women stopped wearing their corsets and tight dresses.  The elder women of the age considered this scandalous and still held the thought that women shouldn’t show the ankle.  Though the adults disagreed with the fashion change, the young women continued to hike up their skirts, stay out late, and go with what was in. Times were, and still are, changing, and thus the flapper age was born.
