Look smashing at your next 1920s theme party or other special event with flapper dresses from Candy Apple Costumes. Flapper dress costumes are fun, flashy and form-fitting. They come in a range of dazzling colors and styles to suit everyone's individual personality.

Additionally, we offer a selection of chic flapper dresses without a lick of fringe, but they've got loads of roaring '20s glam to make up for it.
Author F. Scott Fitzgerald often wrote about flappers, and considered his wife, Zelda, to be the first American flapper. In fact, Zelda was a popular, free-spirited socialite who attended ritzy parties with her husband. Desiring to emulate women like Zelda, young women everywhere rebelled by cutting their hair short, wearing chic dresses that showed off some leg, took up smoking and danced with glee at splashy jazz age parties. Hollywood also helped popularize the flapper lifestyle with movies starring Clara Bow and Louise Brooks. You too can have a great time while dressed as a 1920s flapper and we have a dazzling collection of 1920s costumes and accessories for creating your best flapper girl look.
Creating the flapper look all begins with a gorgeous flapper dress, which has a classic shift design. Some dresses are one solid color with layers of attached fringe that move with your every step. Other styles may feature beautiful geometric patterns accented by beading or glittery fabric, and hemlines range from above the knee to just below the knee. With so many styles, picking a flapper dress is a fun experience, and you can also find add-ons such as feather boas, elaborate headbands, long beaded necklaces and faux cigarette holders. Wearing stockings is optional, but most women in the '20s wore pantyhose, and we offer leg-flattering fishnets and thigh-high stockings to wear with all of our dresses.
