20s style-up: Flapper Dresses!

Where there’s smoke there’s fire” by Russell Patterson

“Flapper in the 1920s was a term applied to a “new breed” of young Western women who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. … Flapper dresses were straight and loose, leaving the arms bare (sometimes no straps at all) and dropping the waistline to the hips.” (Wikepedia)

I don’t think flapper dresses are still as provoking as in the 1920s, but they didn’t lose their beauty and thanks to their cut they seem just perfect for a night on the dance floor.

These modern interpretations of flapper dresses got my attention recently:
