A flapper girl from Baltimore posing with her boyfriend’s photograph printed on her pantyhose (tights). Inasmuch as the length of hems was getting shorter, legs became the focal point of the women’s body during the Jazz Age. Embroidered or printed pantyhose was the fashion. Nylon or cotton plaid socks were mainly worn to sporting activities.
In the 60’s when miniskirts arrived, legs were embellished again.
