1920's Flapper Styles: How to Dress like a Flapper

1910s fashion styles How to Dress like a Flapper1920s flappers wearing dresses

You might think that current fashion bloggers invented 'street fashion' photos, but that's not so. These photos were taken on the streets of New York to show current fashion trends in 1929.  If you want to dress like a flapper, then here are some great styles to try.

Top-Jacket suits of light weight wool worn with fur stole and cloche hats worn low.  The suits have pleated skirts, note:. Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney is on the right.

Second- Flappers wear silk printed dresses with felt hat and fox stole around the shoulder.  Their low cloche hats each have a pin brooch accent on one side.


This is part of a series of blog posts on women's fashions from 1929.
Most illustrations come from the magazine "Fashionable Dress", August 1929.

Love these photographs! It's always so help to see what "normal" women wore.
