All about the Jazz Age

The corset wasn’t the only change in Flapper Fashion. Young women chopped off their traditionally long hair and died it jet black. They wore short, modern “bobs” or “shingle” cuts. Their hem lengths were chopped off too. Flappers wore dresses just below the knee and exposed their legs for the first time ever. These baggy dresses were sleeveless and had modern waist lines that rested on the hips.

Flappers were vibrant and youthful. They wore bright rouge, lipstick, and thick eye makeup.

They even wrapped tight strips of cloth around their chest in order to flatten it and appear younger. The cover of Vogue magazine is completing inspired by the Great Gatsby character Daisy Buchanan.
