The Great Gatsby 1920s Flapper Accessories

1920s Inspired Accessories for Women

The Great Gatsby movie will be out in theaters soon and I think 1920s inspired costumes such as mafia costume or flapper costume will be a big hit for costume parties or Halloween parties this year. In fact I have written a page about the Great Gatsby costume recently. You can check it on this link.
This page is sort of continuation of that page but I am focusing more on the1920s flapper accessories. What is flapper? For those who are not familiar with this term, it refers to fashionable young women of the 20s who wore short skirts, cut their hair short and listened to jazz music. These women often went against the acceptable behavior of women during that time. You can read more about this on Wikipedia.
Now lets scroll down to see some of the essential flapper accessories to complement you flapper costume!

Wig and Hair Accessories – Flapper Wigs

  1. Flapper wig black – it has a lot of hair and you need to style it a bit to get a decent flapper look.
  2. Flapper wig brown – the actual wig color is darker than shown in picture. Soft hair and it could pass for real hair.
  3. Flapper wig blonde – very curly wig. Might be a bit too big for those with smaller heads. Great quality and looks great but the synthetic hair might look too ‘plasticky’.

Pearl Necklaces

It has been said that if a woman can only have a piece of jewelry, it must be a pearl necklace. A pearl necklace is a symbol of classic sophistication and timeless elegance. Think of Audrey Hepburn or Jacqueline Kennedy. A pearl necklace is quite versatile. You can wear it with a casual day wear or a formal evening dress.
The price of a pearl necklace is depending on the quality of the pearls. Freshwater pearls or cultured pearls are more cheaper than saltwater pearls. The sheen and the roundness of the pearls also affect the quality and the price.
