Jewelry - Flapper
Kick up your heels and Charleston your way to a great 20s costume adorned with our Flapper Jewelry and accessories. Flapper girls got their name from the signature dresses and accessories that they wear. Long beaded necklaces and sequin jewelry shakes and shimmies while you dance, leading to the namesake look. Pearl necklaces and bracelets are a classic twenties jewelry pick for a casual party girl look. For a more elegant approach, try items like rhinestone bangles and chokers or chandelier earrings. These swanky items are fit for night club singers, mobsters, and movie star looks.
The 1920s were a time of prohibitions, speakeasies, and flappers. Flappers were free-spirited women who broke society's rules in order to let loose and enjoy the night life offered by jazz clubs and local bars. Most flapper costumes feature a signature fringe dress and a few classic accessories like bob wigs, cigarette holders, and boas. These women changed the gender roles of women by discarding old Victorian ideals. While many flappers opted for boyish hairstyles and waiflike physiques, there is no reason you cannot dress up your style with 20s jewelry options. If you are looking for dress-up inspiration, turn to books and movies like The Great Gatsby, Chicago, and Thoroughly Modern Millie. The Roaring Twenties are a gas and dressing up as a character from a great piece of literature or in a traditional flapper outfit will make you the cat's meow at your next theme party.
