For anyone who has ever been the sole member of a party of about 12 and not had the chance to buy some clothes for yourself, it is no real wonder that no one thought flappers flapped or was a fashion icon. But, in an interesting parallel, it was also about the time in which real flappers went mainstream. In the 1920s, flappers were all sorts of different shapes, sizes and personalities, and were not in any way defined by a set of “flapping” skills. They were not trained in flapping as such, and flippers, as the term was then used, were not a type of dancer.
In the 1920s, people didn’t seem to be in love with real flapping at all; it came with the job, and a lot of it was, as was the fashion, a sign of poor health. When the fashion developed to a point where it wasn’t just the type of flapper that was fashionable, it was the type that was fashionable, and flapping became a sign of having “lost one’s health.”
So, what did people actually wear in the 1920s? It was the 1920s, and the style of wear was, as all American fashion that is, very simple. You’d see two people looking different from each other, and both of them might be wearing a different kind of dress, so it looked “unusual,” and it seemed “frightening” to go to work.
In the 1950s, however, flappers got bolder, and the style was far more complex. While still not quite the same as real flappers, the 1950s flapper style was less simple and more sophisticated than the 1920s, when people wore something more typical of a 1930s or 1940s fashion and was called a Flapper.
The 1950s flapper style had three distinctive elements. First, many people sported a hat with a brim. Many women sported hats with a crown, which seemed like a more conservative way to wear a hat, while men wore more casual “peacoat” styles. Second, many flappers sported a top hat with a long, narrow brim. The third, and my personal favorite, was the crown, which was worn with a bow or a feather in it. There is a lot of debate about the correct term for the top hat itself; I am not confident as to its correct definition. As a result, you will hear the phrase, “you know
