Did you know that, around the turn of the 20th Century, it was still considered scandalous to even show a flash of your ankles, much less your knees?
Which is why, in their time, Flapper fashions were so revolutionary! Most of us think of the Roaring '20s as an era of jazz, moonshine, and notorious mobsters, but it was also a decade for female freedom and self-expression. The first world war was finally over, and with it came a tidal wave of changes in both the world and in long-held customs. The fashions of the '20s reflected this most of all: Women were (literally) throwing off the restrictive trappings of Victorian customs by trading in bustles, corsets, tight long skirts, lace-up boots, and elaborate up-dos for cropped hair, high heels, and flowy, showy Flapper dresses. Suddenly, things that could've gotten a woman tossed out of polite society only a handful of years ago were now all the rage - smoking in public, gambling, showing your knees, cutting your hair, and dancing with wild abandon (have you seen people actually dance the Foxtrot or the Charleston? Those steps were not for snoozers).
So if you're looking for a costume that carries a fascinating history of cultural meaning and progression - or just trying to look as cute as possible - this Women's Champagne Teardrop Flapper Costume will have you shining bright (get it? Because now you know all this background information about the Flapper, which makes you even "brighter", smarts-wise? Hope you got that pun!) from all the way across the speakeasy. The scoop-neck, pullover sheath dress is covered with silver and gold sequins in teardrop and swirl patterns, adding vintage sparkle to your costume game. It's also made out of polyester material, so the dress will move with you when you're Foxtrotting up a storm. Add some high heels, a pair of fishnet stockings, a feathered boa, and a sequined headband, and you'll be the sharpest doll this side of the Prohibition pack (both in looks and in useful historian knowledge)!
