Flapper Style




The Flapper Style is equal parts bohemian, sexy, and stylish. When they hit the scene in the early 20th century, they scandalized older generations with their short hair, heavy makeup, smoking, and wild dancing. The Flapper reveled in her feminine charms, she drank like a pirate, and enjoyed a good man... as long as he didn't cramp her style!

I recently sojourned in Nashville and along with an obsession for the city, I picked up a fabulous feather headband. With a mass of brown feathers and a golded flower applique, it's my favorite adornment. And it set me in the mind for the style of the flapper.


For feathered headbands:

Your eyes should be heavy. Think rich browns, blacks, plums, or even gunmetal. This is perfect:

If you really want to emulate the look, have hair cut into a bob. Wear a cloche hat or headband.

    SUPER CUTE hats on that site you pasted. I love the purple velvet one with the huge bow. Too bad I don't have $288 to splurge on it. Sigh.
