The 1920s, which was amusingly referred to as the “roaring twenties”, was a time of emancipation for women. Ladies in this period made it known to the world that they were not to be trifled with. They partook in the things perceived only for men.

Women wore sporting wears during the roaring twenties which was acceptable because it was comfortable as it was always made of wool and it was designed to look baggy around the hips with the knee cuffed and bottled into knee length socks. These type of pants were worn by women who wanted to partake in rigorous sporting activities like riding, hiking, golfing and so on.
