6 Styles From the Roaring 20’s That You Have To Make

Hello everyone! Tara here—

Vintage styles have been trending for the last few years, and don’t seem to be going anywhere.

With the rise in popularity of thrift shops, trending styles range through all of the decades of the last century. You can find pieces from 1940 just as easily as you can from 1990 in thrift shops and now regular stores too.

Let’s look at some pieces that were staples in the 1920’s that have come back into style 100 years later.

These projects will give any outfit a Roaring 20’s twist:

# 1: Beverly Head Wrap

Headwraps were typically worn during the day and paired with casual outfits, and they were a fun alternative to the flashier headbands that were worn at night. This one can be worn on chilly spring mornings and while pampering yourself with a relaxing face mask at night.

# 2: Azure Scarf

The triangular designs in this scarf give it an Art Deco feel, which was as much of a necessity for fashion as it was for architecture and interior design. Fringe was a must on any fashion piece from the 1920’s too.

# 3: Madeline Split Front Dress

Dropped waistlines on dresses were the epitome of fashion throughout the Roaring 20’s, especially dresses that had the waistline sit at a woman’s hips and the hemline hit around her knees. The plunging neckline and lack of sleeves really gives this dress a true 20’s feel.

# 4: Eleanor Turban Hat

While the cloche was the most popular hat, the turban was a close second. It originally became popular in the previous decade, but it remained a favorite through the 20’s and this one ties in gold and bronze—the top colors of the decade!

# 5: Flirty Filigree Necklace

With the introduction of costume jewelry, beads became essential for any outfit. This necklace combines the important addition of beads with the popularity of fringe, giving it that must-have vintage-feel!

# 6: Half Circle Pineapple Shawl

Feathers were incredibly popular with Flappers in the early 1920’s, and could often be found in headdresses and on gowns. The pineapple stitches of this shawl are reminiscent of the most popular feather on that time—the Peacock feather.
