And when the weather is cool and hot, just like during summer seasons, children wear simple cotton skirts and dresses to keep them cool all the time in school. During the 1920s, colorful patterns of clothes and dresses were girls’ favorite. So most of the time, girls’ clothes come in colorful patters, usually in flowers or dots design. Girls who go to school during the 1920s loved wearing socks with laces or stockings paired with their skirts and dresses. Legs during the 1920s were needed to be covered or should not be totally exposed when going out of the house.

Boys’ School Outfit

School outfits for boys during the 1920s depend on which country they live in. For boys who live in the United States of America, they usually wore knickers when going to school, while boys who live in another country wore shorts when going to school. For older boys, most of them loved wearing short pants paired with long socks to school. As a matter of fact, pants or even shorts used in the 1920s were closed using buttons and not zippers.
