If there is one time I’d like to check out, it’s the 20s baby. Fresh out of World War I, women were turning down Victorian Era fashion and giving birth to the fashion we know and love today. These lovely ladies showed a little skin, wear large eye-catching jewelry, and danced the night a way. The era of the flapper came with rebellious women and experimental fashion. Unfortunetaly, the Great Depression and World War II put an end to the flappers; however, their style was not forgotten. Today, women like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills celebrate their style through 20s themed parties!
The night was full of mean girls, liquor, dancing, and mischief. Some of the ladies rented costumes. Others wore vintage pieces from the 20s! You don’t have to be rich or famous to dress like a flapper. Party City has many roaring 20s looks to choose from!

Statement and Costume Jewelry
Just like Flappers, statement and costume jewelry are eye-catching and bold. Next time you go out, people will take a second look!
The cocktail ring is a clever accessory. It is not a wedding ring and is usually worn on the index or middle finger of one’s drinking hand. It is usually very large and eye-catching. Essentially, it’ll bring attention to your drink and you.
Long chains or Ropes of Pearls
Flappers were known for wearing long ropes of pearls. This is a very important style element because pearls are seen as beautiful, elegant, and luxurious. By flappers wearing them with their short ill fitted clothing, it was another defiance to the world’s view of women. If you don’t have the cash, you can buy real or find fake pearls. If there are a set a pearls in your mothers or grandmothers jewelry box, ask to borrow them for the night.
Life will never be like the 20’s again, but we can still embody these women through our accessories!
