Author, F. Scott Fitzgerald,
described the ideal flapper as âlovely, expensive and about nineteen.â She
was without doubt, a new woman who smoked, drank, voted, danced in public,
cut her hair, wore makeup and went to late night parties where many things
happened (involving all of the afore-mentioned and more). Flappers had their
own language and fashion and the sequined, glitzy dresses of the day were as
tight fitting, revealing and suggestive as the law would allow. In this
regard, in some circles at least, little has changed down through the years.
For the next theme party, consider wearing the fetching black and gold
Putting on the Ritz
flapper costumes. Its name comes from that old Fred Astaire song of the
same name, and no doubt he would have been proud to dance with the likes of
any woman wearing this plunging black V-neck top and alluring, gathered gold
skirt. If you are more into sequins and shorter skirts. For this look,
consider the sexy, silvery sequined flapper costume with pink boa and
cigarette holder. If you are one of those who desires to hide a bit more
than you show but still want the flounce and flair of this unique historical
period, consider the purple Charleston Queen flapper costume equipped with
boa and head feather to dazzle your friends.
To this day the flapper woman is regarded as sexy, risquÃ© and flirty. Women
have come a long way since the days of the flapper. Armed with the power to
make choices, it would seem inevitable that some of them might be bad ones.
It has taken powerful women like the flappers 90 years to get where they are
The sequins, glitter and flair of these beautiful costumes mirror a unique
period in time that can be recaptured in an instant by just slipping into
them. You can be the catâs meow as you boldly Jitter Bug through the night
at your next costume gathering. Dare to go back into time and have some fun
and donât worry, you donât have to stay there. You will have to step back in
time and head to work the next day. But why not have a little old time fun
when you can?
