A flapper was what every girl under the age of 25 wanted to be during the 1920s- young beautiful and in charge A flapper was more than a short haircut rolled panty hose make-up or the Charleston it was an attitude- a way of living and a rebellious spirit like no other The Jazz Age was a time when young and beautiful women knew no boundaries and yet pushed them to the wall Flappers not only hammered a small dent in American history but also helped pave the way for the modern woman The flapper however wasnt famous for her past but rather her style A day in the life of a flapper would include unbearable candor fast living and intermingling with the opposite sex While she strutted her stuff around town she would be wearing a flimsy skirt made of cotton that was light and airy almost transparent and cut right below the knee so that when she paraded across town folks would be able to see her rolled stockings made of rayon The dress was dropped to the waistline and the abandoned corset allowed dancing to occur at any place and time She wore make-up something synonymous with promiscuous women Black liner encircled her eyes and her lips were painted scarlet Her hair was cut in a neat bob that was slicked down with curls on each side of the face She was reckless and could care less if dinner was on the table or the house was spick and span The pedestal in which the flapper stands is her youth the idea that she will never grow old Until that point when she can no longer wear the flimsy skirt accompanied with her whimsical attitude shes going to live it up Young girls abandoned their traditional disposition and their parents went crazy Their teenager was now smoking drinking becoming sexually active and very outspoken
