Flapper Fantastic!

Inspired by Olly’s performance on the X factor last week, the 1920’s Flapper fashion is hot!  And I love the look :)

What a gorgeously, girly style the fashion of the 1920’s was… feathers, pearls, glitter, sequins, T-Bar shoes, red lips, fab hair and great music!

The trend is so versatile you can flap day and night 😉  Get yourselves one of these little flapper hats called Cloche hats – they  fit really well and are low enough to keep your ears warm during winter.  It is such a signature accessory that the flapper look will be instantly achieved no matter what you wear it with.  Headbands are great too – just stick a peacock feather in it or attach a sparkly broach and voila!

The hairstyles were really girly too with lots of waves and curls to frame a beautifully done up face.  Have a read through the AislDash website for some great tips on how to achieve this lovely style.  Short bobs and fringes give the flapper hairstyle a very current edge, like Aggy pictured below.

Dresses are classy and sit on or below the knee.  The sex appeal of the dress is all in the neckline, showing off necklines and shoulders adorned by strings of jewels and pearls.  Shoes are round toes with T-bars, 2 tone if you like and frills if you can find them! Timeless and an absolutely classic look all round!

With Chritmas just around the corner – it might be a great idea to get the friends together and see if I can find a party or club styled on the 1920’s look…hmmm let the search begin!

For a step back in time take a look at the Glamour Daze Blog for some great vintage fashion pics from the 1900’s to the 1950’s.

If you are thinking of hosting a party or are getting married soon take a look at Contraband Events and Calmer Karma who are Entertainment agencies specialising in the Roaring ’20’s themed parties and provide entertainment like tap dancers, jazz bands, flapper dancers, card sharks and all sorts! Oh to be an events organizer right now! 😀

Anywho, must be off to do some Flapper party research, if you know of any club nights or events themed on the 1920’s, please let me know!! Will be a great night out :)

Take care
