Glam Updates Classic Costume Ideas: 1920’s Flapper


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.
