S: Flappers By: Rashel, Wendy, Freddy and Sergio
1: Between about 1880 and 1910, the ideal womens silhouette resembled the letter "S." Bodies were boned and corseted into an hourglass shape, with waists forced into tiny circlets measuring less than 20 inches. The entire upper torso was thrust forward, creating a "pigeon front," and the hips were pointed backward and slightly up, finishing out the letter "S." Skirts hit the floor, and the sight of even an ankle was considered to be quite racy. Younger, skinnier women padded out their bosoms and hips in order to look older, and more shapely. Poufy Gibson Girl hairdos of the '00s and '10s were the primary style. BORING! ..............
2: Flappers decided to free themselves of this BORING and OLD fashion, they decided to be risky and act like men! Dresses became shorter, and so did hair styles! Flappers smoked, drank, and danced the nights away. | Unlike most women at that time, Flappers decided to wear skirts that reached the knees (that was short for them) and a lot of cosmetics. They were female dare devils. they cut- or "bobbed"- their hair. Many pondered wether they were trying to express them-selves, or act like men.
4: Flappers usually took sexual relationships as a casual matter, unlike other women of the jazz age | Flappers did not actually exist until 1926.
5: Women often thought that even showing an ankle was a bad thing, but these dare devils did that and even more, they showed their knees,as well as their ankles!
6: Flappers Hairstyle
7: The young women of the 192os didn't feel the need to comply with the look that there mothers accepted.The Flappers image consisted of drastic - to some, shocking - changes in women's clothing and hair. There clothing was trimmed down and lightened in order to make movement easier. The 1920's women hairstyle was the "bob". It was a short and simple cut, where the hair is generally at level with the bottom of the ears or chin, and worn straight or waved, with or without bangs.The "bob" started during ww1 when women who took on jobs in factories or driving ambulances cut their hair short for practicality. But when a famous star Irene Castle cut her hair short like a "bob" this suddenly became the new trend and not only for convenience.
