1920s Black Women Fashions
Publications about the Great Migration confirm that whether black women
remained in the South or ended up in bustling northern cities, racial and
workplace segregation often relegated them to domestic positions. Steven
Spielberg's movie "The Color Purple" visually depicted outfits worn by black
housekeepers and nannies of the time. Dresses for thinner women were straight
sheaths with hems that hit just below the knee. Larger women wore anklelength
dresses with flared broomstick skirts. Most frocks featured portrait collars,
square collars and front buttondown accessibility. Waistlines were trimmed with
thin belts. Fabrics were often the cheapest, thinnest cotton or flannel, either
solid in color or patterned with flowers or stripes.
Although they comprised less than 30 percent of the nondomestic workforce
sector, black women in northern cities also earned money outside of homes,
allowing them to be more public. Detroit's Krolik factory, Buhl Malleable Iron
Company, a movie theater and many cigar manufacturers hired black women. These
working women's outfits mimicked those of their Caucasian counterparts. Silk,
crepe de Chine, taffeta and satin fabrics were coveted. Soft, bright colors were
worn with matching hosiery. Dresses were predominantly calflength, billowy and
banded at the waist, counteracting plain sheaths. Necklines were rounded or
vnecked and adorned with ribbons and broad collars. Kittenheeled Mary Janes and
granny boots were common footwear.
The social standing of the black female churchgoer was characterized by her
hat. Very few black women over 30 attended church in the 1920s without one. The
average hat would be widebrimmed and simply adorned with one ribbon. Wealthier
women's hats were heavily adorned with beads, flowers and feathers. Some wore
cloches of the day. Church dresses were always conservative, hemmed below the
knee and resembled elegant styles with godets (flares) or kick pleats. Black
women of the church also wore white gloves and nudecolored stockings and carried
clutch purses. Pearls, whether real or imitation, were reserved for Sunday
service. Shoes were closed, pointed and lowheeled with Tstraps or high
Vocalists including Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Ida Cox, Edythe Turnham

and Josephine Baker personified freedom during the Roaring '20s. They wore
outlandish outfits and performed for wide audiences. Young black women wanted to
look like them. They adorned their short, bob hairstyles with finger waves,
feathers and broad, glittered headbands. Sleeveless dresses were cut low in the
back and the front. Also, dresses ranged from bead and rhinestoneadorned long
gowns to short, fringed flapper dresses.
