To me, the flapper mentality and aesthetic is all about pushing boundaries. They were women on the forefront of their time, fighting on the front lines for fashion and attitude. They were trailblazers in all senses of the word, introducing society to a lifestyle and a fashion that had never previously been seen. When we think of the roaring twenties the vision of a flapper girl is undoubtedly at the forefront of our mind. We wanted to capture the essence of the flapper mentality, but in the modern times, in accordance with our roaring 2020s theme of course. I was brainstorming outfits, how exactly we could pull this off, and it hit me. I needed to wear blue eye makeup, put my hair in high pigtails, and wear my dad's dress shirts with no pants. THAT would capture the modern essence of the classic flapper girl. The look is edgy, eccentric, forward thinking, and a little risky. To make the vibe even better, we took all of the pictures with an app called Huji Cam, which turns your smart phone into a disposable camera.
This look is the casual pajama shirt vibe. Its soft, feminine, relaxed, with just a touch of upper class refinement. Its a late night evening look for reading in bed and watching Sex in the City.
This one's a bit more fun, a bit more fresh. This one screams 'after party in my friends basement', a cool kids only kind of event and a cool kids only look.
This has homecoming spirit week vibes. You'll wear the shirt ironically - with pants of course because dress code, obviously - for Hawaiian or tourist day, and then you'll find yourself a few days later rolling up to homecoming with it on and nothing else. And then every weekend you'll be out on the town in the same thing, no pants, high ponytail.
This has Sunday afternoon vibes. You go on a picnic, an art museum, walk around downtown with a cross body bag that's just a bit too big, and then you get into your dated car and drive around town until the sun sets.
And those are the looks! We encourage you to be daring with your fashion, makeup, and life for this next month. Take the long way home, go to a new store just because it looks interesting, wear no pants out in public and don't bother about what anyone might say. Its the roaring 20s again! Make the flappers proud and do what you want.
