Flapper Costume Tutorial
How to Make a Flapper Outfit
1. A Flapper Dress for Dancing
Start your flapper costume with the main outfit first. The style of the day consisted of dresses (or skirts) with dropped waistlines reaching no further than the knee, fashioning a plunging back or neckline and always sleeveless. Find something with lace or beads if possible. The right outfit will show off how fun, sexy and classy you are.

2. Show a Little Leg
Keep all eyes on you with these thigh high stockings with embroidered lace tops. Choose the black or white thigh highs based on the color of your main outfit. A garter belt and stocking set can add authenticity to your Prohibition Era flapper. Same goes for the shoes. If you plan on dancing, make sure your shoes are up to the task and start bustin’ a move.

3. Head Accessories
Flappers were very particular about their hair. One such trend was keeping their hair in bobs. Be sure to adorn your head with something decorative. A fascinator hair clip or a feathered headband should do the trick. Don’t be stingy with the make-up you apply either. Now you’ll hold the attention of any partygoers looking for a good time.
4. Dance Accessories
All there’s left to do is putting on any accessories for some added flair. Some of the accessories you could include with your outfit include:
- Long pearl necklaces
- Feather boas in fun colors
- Faux fur coat or shrug
- Long satin gloves (Make sure the gloves are snug fit!)
