Flapper Girl

The Roaring Twenties           
Flapper girl
I adore 1920s fashion for the reason that it progressed from the fussy Victorian status quo, and gave flair to regular people. It was the decade in which women first liberated themselves from constricting fashions and the flapper was born...

A chic and fashionable flapper had a distinctive sleek short shiny “black helmet” bob with a fringe, a shorter than usual loose-fitting shift dress, a chest as flat as a board, wore and applied make up in public, smoked long cigarettes, exposed her limbs and epitomised the spirit of a careless rebel who danced till the early hours of the morning.
