Women also wore suits, with shirtwaists (blouses), and had sporting clothes for their more active pursuits like skating, cycling, and tennis. The suits were coordinated jackets and long skirts

Most often a girdle, or belt, held in the waist.

It was the first year for bohemian chic and that look went from und
