Also known as the Jazz Age, the Roaring Twenties were an elegant time of flapper dresses, cloche hats, ornate head bands, and T strap shoes. Sequins or beads add an element of sparkle, and feathers are another decadent touch. A flapper dress typically includes fringe or tassels of some kind. Drape pearls around your neck, or perhaps even a boa. If you have long hair, a wig in a vintage bob style is a perfect accessory to add to your look. Men typically dress in a gangster style outfit.
