Hello Guys, so this is the second part of my collaborating with the amazing Toyosi Kekere-Ekun to explore the adaptation of 1920s style.
The Flappers girls were a new bread of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behaviour. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting social norms.
The inspiration here was Darker, heavily outlined eyes in kohl the flapper girl look required “heavy makeup” compared to what was previously acceptable outside. Blush and fuller lips came in vogue. Flapper girls wore up Shorter dresses, bare back, basically, more skin. The flapper girls went all out as they were not simple so I over accessorised with a purse, pearls, sunglasses and a turban. I totally see most people rocking this” Great Gatsby” themed look in recent times, could it be that we are going back to the 20’s.
