Formalwear: the 1920s look
In the 1920s, colour was kept to a minimum. Suits were typically neutral in colour but any garments in shades of cream were usually a sign of extreme wealth and suaveness. Accessories such as pocket squares, pocket watches and boutonnières remained monochromatic, with a clear emphasis on the whole outfit rather than any individual aspect.
