Are you in love with flapper style, but can’t find an excuse to wear it out in public? Don’t wait for the next Roaring Twenties party! Instead, incorporate just a touch of flapper style into your modern look. Here are five fun touches to try!
1. Try Bette Davis Hair
Iconic ’20s actress Bette Davis was known for her glossy finger-waves. This hairstyle is great for short hair with a natural wave. For this sculpted look, you can use gel and a curling iron. Space waves an inch and a half apart.
2. Wear Those Beads, Baby
I love the long, draping bead necklaces that flappers often wore. You can combine this look with any outfit, from a tee and jeans to the formal navy blouse and a-line skirt in the photo above.
3. Fringe It Up
Going dancing? Consider wearing a dress with layers of fringe. Think about how much fun it would be to twist and shake in this fun get up!
4. Keep It Simple With A Loose Shift Dress
Try wearing a simple loose shift dress with a drop waist the next time you want to wear a sun dress. You’ll have the flapper essence without all of the accouterments, so you’ll remain very low key!
5. Stay Warm With A Flapper Style Headband
A flapper style headband is so easy to pull off, and looks cute with short and long hair alike! For an authentic ’20s look, wear the band low around your forehead and ears, and let your hair be visible around your face. This is an especially great style for chilly winter months, when you can wear a chunky, cable-knit headband. You’ll be stylish and cozy at the same time!
Try these five flapper touches out in your everyday look. They add a twist to any modern outfit, without overdoing it. Don’t be surprised if you feel like busting out the Charleston dance step while you wait for the subway! Which flapper style touch is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
