Glam Updates Classic Costume Ideas: 1920’s Flapper

By  October 30, 2013

While there’s no shortage of flapper costumes at Halloween stores and on costume websites thanks in part to The Great Gatsby, we’re privy to the magic that comes with a create-your-own Halloween style. To capture the essence of this look, we looked to basic themes from 1920’s flapper fashion (fringe, sequins and dark makeup) and captured them in a more modern way. All you need is a swingy dress, some black Mary Janes, a hefty pile of pearls and a bit of sass to pull off this glamorous look.
