The new woman of the 1920s wore short skirts,
belts low to the hip, high-heeled shoes and cloche hats.

In 1926 Chanel created a formula for everyday life so relevant that it became, after World War II, the basis for all garde-robes. The formula consisted of a sober black small dress, and was baptized by the American vogue as the "Ford of Chanel". Chanel also developed what will become one bases of its style, blending her outfits with costume jewellery.
All of this without forgetting other dressmakers such as:
Jeanne Lanvin and Lucien Lelong who also created their own " garçonne" style Paul Poiret with his straight dresses which liberated woman of the corset, Madeleine Vionnet added fringes to the bottom of her dresses and cut them in skew.
After 1928, people started to grow weary of the style's flashy aspect, and it was Jean Patou who became one of the first to be react, with dresses which remained short, but whose size had returned to its original place.
