Traditional Flapper accessories include long pearl necklaces, a small sequined purse, a cigarette holder and a feather boa The ideal dress length for Flappers was right below or above the knee. Most Flapper dresses were designed with plunging necklines, but few women would emphasize their breasts; the classic look of the 20s was simple, streamlined and masculine, so it was better to be flat chested than ‘busty’ to pull off the most fashionable look of the era
