Flappers: 1920's Fashion
Transcript of Flappers: 1920's Fashion
adopted a greater freedom of expression when it came to fashion. Outfits were vibrant and beautifully
coordinated. The designs of clothing were simple yet elegant, with carefully selected fabrics and great use of color that popped but was never overwhelming. As compared to before the war, dresses in the 1920’s were lighter, brighter and shorter than they ever had been in the past. Many women also began to wear pantsuits, hats and canes. A straight-line chemise topped
with a cloche hat was the norm for women as well as low-waisted dresses with fullness at the hemline
which allowed for more movement when it came to dancing. Clothing Clothing An ensemble of hats, shoes, stockings, handbags, dresses, and great amounts of jewelry created a typical outfit for the women of the 20’s. They bore much more skin than would have previously been considered appropriate and shoes and stockings were more important
than ever as they could finally be seen in an outfit. Accessories Flapper Fashion - 1920s Fashion History. [Online] Available: www.fashion-era.com/flapper_fashion_1920s.htm. February 17, 2013.

1920's Fashion. [Online] Available: glamourdaze.com. February 17, 2013. The flappers of the Roaring 1920s are related to the book The Great Gatsby in different ways. The author of the book himself went to the First World War and was also once married to a flapper. Nick, the main character of the book, represents a man who did participate in the war and was surrounded by the new fashion of the women. For the author this is a way to remember and show the change that has occurred during that time, in a way the flappers are related to the book because they were part of the changes in history. The culture introduced in the book shows part of the revolutionary changes that occurred after the war and we can understand the reason why the characters acted the way they did.
Also, in the story Daisy and Jordan are both female characters that act as flappers. Knowing about flappers helps us to perceive and further understand some aspects of the book.
