The Roaring 20s: Flapper Style!

by The Feather Place NYC on October 23, 2012



The 1920s Flapper has always been a popular Halloween costume, but this year we are seeing a resurgence in this style from movies, fashion and even hot off the runways!

The HBO show Boardwalk Empire brought the Golden Age back into the spotlight with its fantastic costume and set design. Feathers adorn headdresses, clothing, fans and even party decor. This December stay tuned for the new release of The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan who take this classic story to the next level.

The flapper style is one of our favorites since we can DIY with, of course, feathers! You can get inspiration from popular culture, runway shows or even going to and using your imagination! We recommend using peacock feathers, ostrich feathers, and a variety of fringes and boas to create the perfect look.

Below, we leave you with a couple of styles from Ralph Lauren’s collection that we previously wrote about- the designer’s uncanny ability to channel the Flapper style is truly inspiring!
