Dressing up for a roaring 20s party or Halloween night? Beautiful beaded flapper costume dresses bring quality vintage-inspired style to your 1920s look. Sequin dresses are also very ’20s yet a little more affordable. If your budget is small you can find many fun 1920s costumes online for $25 to $100. Add in a headband, evening shawl or boa and a pair of t-strap shoes to complete your flapper costume. Many flapper dresses work for Downton Abbey, Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries, Chicago, Modern Millie and Great Gatsby parties.
Besides a 1920s flapper, consider being a female gangster, bootlegger, or mobster moll. Wear high waisted pants, a vest, suspenders, shirt, tie and newsboy cap for a menswear inspired Amelia Earhart aviator costume.
Back in the 1920s women attended costume parties wearing court jester, Pierrot clown, and Harlequin costumes. The Egyptian revival also meant a lot of Cleopatra and Pharaoh costumes along with peacocks, butterflies, dragonflies and other art deco symbols.
