Flapper Style of the 1920s Fashion Era [Image Heavy]

Scrapbook of fashion research done 4 years ago. The handwriting areas were deliberately stained and the white background had started yellowing naturally.

Also known as the Jazzy era or 'Roaring Twenties' it appears to be a carefree time of dance and the beginning of women being free from the conforms of a traditional society and being 'liberated' in the way they dress and behave.

Main elements of this style:

  1. Shapeless shift dresses
  2. Lots of pearl accessories
  3. The unique cloche hats or bucket hats
  4. T-bar shoes
  5. And also there isn't and emphasis on the bosom, rather flat chest is preferred so that the clothes can hang freely
  6. Definite makeup: strong eyes, brows and red lips.
It's interesting to look back on the fashion of bygone eras and appreciate the origins of where the ideas of today's fashion come from. 

Everything that is around now seems to be a recycled idea from the past. 

A great and informative fashion website to visit (also the main source of info for my research) is from Fashion-Era.com.

Have a great weekend everyone!
