When it comes to decades that are romanticized to the point that they are idolized even today, the Roaring Twenties is hard to beat. This is the decade in which everyone imagines there were bootleggers, gangsters and flappers on every corner, and that everyone was living a free and fun life. Though that's not exactly true, it's fun to be able to live the fantasy on Halloween. And with great women's flapper costumes, any woman can feel as though she's living in the twenties.
The flapper style is an iconic one that is still imitated today, so there is nothing than could be any more stylish or recognizable than a flapper Halloween costume. The flapper style that is most often emulated in Halloween costumes today is of a simple tank style dress that is completely covered in long fringe. The most common color to see these flapper costumes in is black, though there is any number of different colors to choose from. These dresses are paired with a headpiece that generally comes in one of two styles. The first style is a simple feather or two pinned to the hair, while the other style is of a sequined headband that matches the color of the dress. Accessories can include a matching feather boa, a long beaded necklace, or a faux cigarette holder.
But flappers aren't the only icons represented in this category. Probably the second most popular costume character of this decade is the gangster moll. One version of this costume has the moll dressed much like a gangster, in a tight fitting pinstriped suit with matching hat and tommy gun. The other version, even sexier, has the moll in a short and tight dress with matching tie and fedora.
There are even the more modest Gatsby Girl costumes in this category, for those who prefer something more substantial than the flapper outfits. And for the woman looking to put on the ritz, twenties style evening gowns are the perfect fit. There should be something for every woman in women's flapper costumes, from the sexiest flirt to the grimmest gangster.
