Women's style changed dramatically during the 1920s, reflecting a new attitude of freedom and indulgence that included short dresses, shorter haircuts, voting, driving, and other activities that were considered unseemly for young ladies of the time. Dancing was a popular pastime in the Roaring 20s, and flapper dresses were cut just below the knee to allow movement for new scandalous dance styles like the Charleston and the Lindy Hop. Many young women happily embraced this new liberated lifestyle, and the look is still instantly recognizable today.

Cut your hair into a cute bob (or pick up a short black wig) and put on your dancing shoes. This Halloween, it's all about jazz music, trying out your vintage dance moves, and serious Gatsby style. Pick from a glamorous selection of bold dresses and flapper costume accessories straight out of the 1920s!

If you know a girl who loves fashion, introduce her to the flapper style trends of the Roaring 20s. She'll think this Halloween costume is the cat's pajamas! She can dress up as a glamorous 1920s dame in this bubblegum pink flapper dress, and steal the spotlight with the help of the fluffy feathered headband.

If someone asks if she's having a good Halloween, she should respond, "And how!"
Be Bold And Bubbly
The 1920s took place during the Prohibition Era, which led to secret speakeasies and an illicit appreciation for adult beverages. This flapper dress is the same color as champagne, one of many bubbly drinks flappers and gangsters of the time would call "giggle water."
You're sure to dazzle in this tiered fringe dress with a champagne sequined trim. If you want to get even more dolled up, choose a daringly red lipstick and accessorize with costume jewelry, long gloves or a feather boa. The 1920s were all about excess, so feel free to go wild with embellishments. The cats and dames at the party will think you're the bee's knees!

It starts with classic black fringe, and really catches eyes with its glittery silver detailing at the neckline and shoulder straps.
This Halloween costume comes with a fetching flapper headband, but you don't have to stop there. Bold eyeshadow would offer this black dress a fun pop of color, and fishnets or tights would add another hint of 1920s decadence.
