I’m attending a 1920s-themed New Year’s Eve party this year. As always, my problem is not that I can’t find inspiration, but that I’ve found TOO MUCH inspiration. This is always happening to me. I think it’s a good problem to have.
Probably my third most favorite thing about the 1920s is that it was a period of transition. The main image that people have in their heads of the 1920s is that of the flapper, and that certainly existed and had a huge impact, but in reality there were tons of different styles being worn by many different people. It’s not a flat decade of sameness, but a free, unpredictable decade of diverse looks.
Below, some images I’ve been pondering.
