The Roaring '20s were a time of fun, daring and economic prosperity. Prohibition made speakeasies the place to party and modern flappers said goodbye to Victorian ways baring their arms and legs as the new risque sex symbols of the day. That decade was a time when the younger generation broke from tradition and embraced new things like jazz music, sexuality and art. Imagine flappers dancing the Charleston and Lindy at the speakeasy while gangsters in their Zoot suits counted their loot in the back room. There were car chases, machine gun mob hits, women in make-up and sexy dancing. The older generation, in the roaring 1920s, thought the world was going to hell in a hand basket and today we are all the more thankful for it. These 20s costumes represent that!

20's Costumes

Meet 7 Famous Flappers [Infographic]

Let Costume SuperCenter introduce you to seven women who set the 1920's on fire with this Flappers Infographic. In the age of prohibition, Joan Crawford, Gilda Gray and other flappers were dancing their ways through the decade with flash and flare, and catching men's attentions along the way. You can relive this time period with one of the styles from our huge inventory of 1920's costumes. Just make sure you don't forget the moonshine!

Zoot suits featured bold pinstripes and broad shoulders. No man in those days ever left the house with a fedora. Wingtip shoes were also worn by all the men. The women wore Flapper dresses that featured knee length hemlines, bare arms and layers of tassels that shimmied as they danced. Our designers have recreated these fashions as beautiful 1920s Halloween costumes that are available in many colors, variations and price points.
