Ladies wore white dresses and hats to show they were ladies. Sometimes they were more than one for the same person. To show they were not just another woman wearing a hat and a dress.
They also wore white stockings with black shoes and blue or bright colored skirts. Most women in this part of the world weren’t wearing trousers.
If a dress did show the waistline then you would see the white stockings covering the waistline. Many women would have stockings in black. Women usually had black stockings made of cotton or lace. Even though many people didn’t dress down and wore plain black, some people also wore black stockings.
Women were also seen carrying flowers in some countries (especially in the U.S.).
In order to show they were a lady you must wear a white, low slung dress.
Sometimes an open top was worn (a high slit dress)
If you were a mother/wife you might wear a white or black dress.
If you were a woman, then you had more options. Some women wore a dark blue or green skirt with a white or yellow colored dress. There was also a choice of white or blue stockings.

The 1920s was also a time when many women began to experiment with makeup. Some women began to wear mascara, others only wore eyeliner and eyebrows.
