Dresses - Sleeveless -The women of Downton are already quite enamored of a sleeveless look, although they’ve to-date covered their arms for dinner with opera-length gloves. As long gloves and muffs fell out of favor in the 1920s, arms were a canvas for cuffs, bangles, watches, and cocktail rings. This photograph dates from 1928.

Fashion the flapper. Flappers had both an image and an attitude. To look more like a boy, the flappers would wind cloth around their chests to flatten them. The waists of clothes were dropped to the hipline.

New Years Postcard (1920). Can you say Flower Child?

New Year postcard, / During the young girls wore big bows on their hair that fell onto the head, & so they became known as "flappers".

From the book: "World champion Charleston dancer Bee Jackson wears a beaded and fringed dance dress, popular at the time, as the fringes would shimmer and shake and draw attention to movement. This dress is shorter than the typical styles of the era. Paste jewellery known as "slave bracelets" was often worn high up on the arm as well as the wrist."    Scanned from "Decades of Fashion" by Harriet Worsley.
