#TBT: Harlem Renaissance Fashion
Cheers to the Throwback Years! Welcome to another # TBT post honoring Black Beauties from back in the day!
Today’s theme: Harlem Renaissance Fashion
The Harlem Renaissance known as the “The New Negro Era”, was from 1919-1933 and drenched with activism, literature, jazz, education and more. Men walking around in their Zoot Suits, women in their flappers, pearls and large feathers. Such a classy and timeless era filled with beautiful people.
- Langston Hughes- Literature
- Sterling A. Brown- Literature
- Billie Holiday- Singer
- Louis Armstrong- Musician
- Chick Webb- Musician
- Countee Cullen- Literature

I love this era because of the classiness and bougieness of it all. Pearls, dresses, fur, fancy hats, I LOVE IT ALL! You cannot tell me that the Harlem Renaissance Era is not bougie. The photos were found on Google Image search! I do not know their original photographer so I do apologize! Well enjoy the photos below! Cheers!
