How to wear 1920s style dresses
Loose, straight dresses, short hair and exposed legs! To be honest, this is nothing that would shock anyone nowadays. But 100 years ago, this was different and the knee-long dresses of the flapper girls were quite a revolution. Although you most likely won’t be able to provoke a scandal when dressed like this today, you will still be a real head-turner. And let’s be honest, some fancy 1920s glamour is exactly what we need in times like this, right?
The Dresses of the Flapper Girls
In the 1920s, dresses got shorter. And although they were still kind of knee-length, this already really was something really new. Furthermore, the dresses back then had a quite loose silhouette with a waistline dropping to the hips and bare arms. Underneath those dresses, the flapper girls wore stockings made of silk or rayon.
Why 1920s style Dresses are perfect for Parties
As those 1920s dresses are quite loose, they offer a lot of freedom of movement. So you can eat a lot and will still be able to dance wildly, afterwards, without feeling narrowed or something like this. And of course, you will still be a real head-turner and noone else will wear something similar to you – except you are attending a 1920s party, of course. 😉
How to style 1920s inspired Dresses
I like to team 1920s inspired dresses with authentic accessories. So beside seamed stockings, I am also wearing pretty shoes with a not so high heel. In those, you are able to dance all night long without getting your feet hurt. A sparkly headband finishes this perfect party outfit.
By the way: as in the 1920s short hair was quite en vogue, I decided to style my long hair into a short bob. 😉
