When we think of a woman of the ‘Roaring Twenties’ it is likely that we are picturing a 1920′s flapper. Flappers emerged on the scene about 1926 and the fashion embraced all the modern styles of the day.
A flapper normally had short hair, a shorter than average dress that exposed her limbs, was heavily made up and smoked with a long cigarette holder. She was the epitome of a young girl who danced the nights away during the Jazz Age. No wonder flapper fancy dress is so popular!Budget Choice – Adult Sexy Flapper Costume
