The Jazz Age; The Roaring Twenties; whatever one calls the 1920s, they were characterized by the music, the dancing, the fast cars, and most importantly, for the fashion buff, the "flapper". Although a wider variety of fashions were worn by women at this time, the 1920s have become synonymous with the image of the short-haired flapper in the straight, waistless dress twirling her long strands of beads. Whether the flapper truly existed or was a caricature of the ideological 1920s woman, the boyish (or garçonne) bob cut and figure flattening attire were indeed a major part of the trends during this decade. As women's clothes became less form-fitting, so did men's. Baggy jackets and trousers supplemented the formerly conservative wardrobe of the young man. The newfound independence in lifestyle and clothing went hand-in-hand during this modern decade.
