A lace shirt will add to the overall appearance, and you should never forget a belt and a hat. Not only hats were fashionable in the roaring 20s, but they are an excellent way to take graciousness to the next level.

Anyone Up for Charleston?

Charleston was among the most popular dresses in the 1920s. Everyone loved dancing, and women who weren’t afraid to show their moves on the dance floor were particularly attractive. That is why you can never go wrong with a costume inspired by Charleston dancers of the time.

It is crucial to note that you need a dress that allows free movement so that you don’t feel restrained if you plan to dance. You can always benefit from finding a plus size flapper costume that will include fingerless gloves and a headband.

Fingerless gloves are an excellent choice for the summer because you won’t feel warm wearing them (but you will feel hot!). Dresses that featured a capelet also turned out to be a great hit at the events I visited, so don’t hesitate to try that.

While we are talking about accessories, consider mixing satin gloves with purple plus size flapper dresses. If you ask me, purple is a color of elegance. A classy costume will ensure you look a tad provocative and demonstrate your free spirit. Liberation from classic strings was the point of the 1920s fashion, at least for the females, so you will be right on track.

Some women don’t like being too sparkly, but that was the characteristic of the 1920s. Fortunately, the way around it is to combine black and gold in your plus size flapper costume. The unavoidable sequins and spaghetti straps will ensure you fit the theme. You are welcome to choose the shoes, but flapper heels are always a smart pick.

How does it sound to combine silver and black? A classic black dress with silver details (or in another color) around the sleeves and the V-neck can be a great combo. If you ask me, look for dresses with the zipper on the back so that you can remove them easily.
