Spring/Summer 2013 - Platinum Flapper

Print this Learning Center Idea
With popular TV shows and movies revisiting the Roaring Twenties, it's no wonder flapper style is making a comeback. But this fashion trend embodies the twenties with a twist. In the Platinum Flapper trend, the luxurious look of the Jazz Age is infused with modern metallics. Lightweight fabrics swathe and sheath the body to create that natural draped effect seen on so many fashion icons from the 1920s. Dresses are short and feature the classic flapper drop-waist cut. Keep these elements modern by pairing them with the perfect accessories, like sleek leather boots. Neutral colors of navy and slate blue along with cream and blush tones are paired with silver, brass, gunmetal and the classic black and white combo. Neutral colors are best represented by sheer, floaty fabrics, like a simple silk blouse, and can be paired with metallic elements, like silver tights. No ensemble inspired by the 1920s would be complete without embroidered embellishments. From headbands to decorations on dresses, beaded and embroidered embellishments fit right in. The geometric shapes found in the art deco movement of the 1920s certainly lend themselves to modern flair, as they have a futuristic feel that can easily be incorporated into today's looks — they can be found in color-blocked patterns on shirts and dresses this season. Finish your 1920s look with a bob hairstyle (or even a faux bob if you want to keep your hair long). Keep your makeup natural during the day and opt for bold, smoky eyes at night. Of course, red lips work any time of day when you're emulating flapper fashion. For this trend, all you have to do is look to the luxurious materials of the twenties to stand out this spring: pearls, silk, sequins, velvet and feathers. Pile on long strands of jewelry and your style can be as glamorous as silent film stars!
