Our 1920s fashion costumes don’t have to just be used for fancy dress parties. If you love the 1920s then why not wear for a night out or evening party? The flapper dress is a loose straight dress that leaves the arms bare. This was the era in which women became more daring with showing off a little leg and shoulder.

The history of the flapper dress comes from women wanting to feel liberated by their clothing. Gone were the restrictive long dresses worn in previous eras. A woman wanted to be able to dance to jazz and if she flashed a little leg, so what! Who knew a dress could hold such importance? Become part of an amazing time in history with your very own flapper dress. Our flapper dresses come in a variety of sizes and either in a red or black material. You are sure to look ultra-stylish in 1920 fashion costumes, especially once you have fully accessorised your outfit.

1920s Women’s Fashion Gloves

In the 1920s gloves were still very much an essential accessory for women’s clothing. If you want to truly emerge yourself into the culture and style of the 1920s then you are going to need gloves for every occasion.

We have a huge range of gloves but have a soft spot for these Short Bows and Cut Outs Gloves in red. If you were lucky enough to have your own car and be able to drive you would have needed a pair of swish leather gloves to wear while driving. These fancy gloves feature a feminine touch with a sweet bow and flower cut outs. The cut outs also mean your hands can breathe so you won’t arrive looking flustered.

Some 1920s outfits would feature lace accessories or decorations. With these Fingerless Lace Gloves in black, you are sure to look like a stylish lady. The finger cutouts mean you can still use your mobile phone (not something those 1920s girls would need to worry about).

If you look at 1910s fashion you could start to see a hint of what was to come with dresses becoming straighter cut. By the time of 1930 fashion, you could certainly see the beginnings of the fashions that were to emerge during the next couple of decades but still with a hint of the fun dresses of the 1920s.

If you love 1920s inspired looks then don’t be afraid to walk out as a 1920s modern fashion gal. You are sure to have a style that nobody else will be flaunting and you can strut to your own jazzy beat.
