I adore flappers, but I also love Gibson girls, the flames of their reactionism. There are some days I'll take cloche hats over bonnets, and others when the reversal is true (to relate this all to hats)...

This thread needs more posts!

I recommend the book "The Twenties in Vogue". Not only does it have lots of fantastic pictures, but the text is wonderful! A lot of it is excerpts from actual copies of Vogue in the 1920s - so you get to hear about the fabulous parties, travel, etc! There are some used ones on Amazon, and sometimes cheap copies pop up on eBay.

Love this lady - rocking the 'older flapper' look!

Male flappers - wide-legged pants were very fashionable for fellas.

Great thread! The 20s are one of my favorite eras in fashion. The flappers are really fun to learn about from a historical/social perspective as well. Helped pave the way for later feminists.

^ that's why flappers were so great, it was about more than just fashion.
