For those of you dating a 20′s era vamp, you’ll find that nothing makes your fanged freak’s blood run hotter than a short skirt, bobbed hair, dropped waist and beaded fringe-like layers. But with all the stereotypes, many modern women fail to remember the true sex appeal of the 20′s flapper.
‘Ideal’ body shapes have changed since then and you might think that makes it impossible for you to indulge your vamp by wearing his favorite sexy outfits, but that is simply untrue. Use your hourglass figure to your advantage. Forgo the dropped waist and use modern textiles to give you a tight fit while embracing the beads and short hairstyles so well-used in
the early 1900s.
If you don’t want to commit to a sexy bob, you can simply put your hair up and leave some short, curly tendrils hanging.
For maximum authenticity, be sure to part your hair in the middle and, if that’s not the most flattering look for your face, use a hat to give yourself a little extra lift.
Finally, be sure to use modern make up styles to your advantage. Mix the currently popular smokey eye look with the red lips of the Jazz Age and you can create a sensuous, smoldering look that stays on the right side of the harlot line.
