And in case you don’t, it was THE outfit of the swinging 20’s, also known as the roaring twenties.
After the end of the 1st World War, women became a bit more daring with fashion and went as far as wearing clothing that was on or slightly above the knee and by the middle of the 1920’s, the flapper dress evolved and became the epitome of fashion for the women that mattered.
The flapper dress is shaped like a straight cut tunic without a distinct waist or bust line; it has a kind of “boyishness” to its cut. This added to its popularity with the ladies. No more painful boned corsets worn to carve out an hourglass figure.
The dress was usually adorned with embroidery, tassels, feathers, and other forms of showy dazzling fashion embellishments.
