Scarves have been a part of high class fashion for decades. The 1920s was a time period when women switched over from wearing larger shawls over their outfits to wearing smaller scarves that would complement the outfit without overbearing it.
The most common types of scarves for women to wear in the 1920s were slim styles that they would tie either around their head or neck. Wider scarves were also worn on the head to resemble headbands or turbans. When the scarves were not adorning the body parts of women in the 1920s, they would act as belts, bows, and ribbons as decoration on flapper dresses.
In the Roaring Twenties, brightly colored scarves were a staple of women’s fashion. The designs on these scarves would have Art Deco geometric designs. These eccentric accessories are a accurate representation of the eclectic era of the Jazz Age.
