Partying in the 1920's

This will probably be my first and last update to my partying in the 1920's guide. Check it out, but don't forget to also check out the main guide here, or click the banner above. First off, here are three galleries I've put together for some costume ideas. One for the girls and one for the guys. One is a lot bigger then the other. The third one is a gallery of photos I've stolen from other 1920's parties, so you can see what other people have done in the past. See it here. Learn more about the 1920's History:
And here are some more links, ideas and notes:

Accessories: Those that know me, know that I think Shoulder length evening gloves are hotttest thing ever invented. Don't know what I'm talking about? Here is an example.
Shoes: Shoes with low to medium heels are most appropriate for this period. Mary Janes and T-straps were especially popular in the 1920s. Hair:
Men's Ideas:
A NOTE FOR MEN We don't say much about evening wear for men because the 'rules' are fairly well-known and haven't changed much over the decades. Briefly, his choices are: WHITE TIE: Formal wear, or 'tails' -- the full dress suit with swallowtail coat, white tie, white vest. The vest can be single- or double-breasted, or white pique cotton or silk. Stiff, starched linen shirt, often with white pique front, and wing collar, fastened with pearl or moonstone studs. Top hat and white gloves, and a cape or Chesterfield overcoat, complete the ensemble. BLACK TIE: "Informal" wear, dinner jacket or 'tuxedo' -- a more modern look, basically the same line as the everyday 'sack suit.' Trousers are black; jacket is most often black, but midnight blue (in the 20s) and white (in the 40s) were also worn. The white shirt is semi-stiff, fold or wing collar, with a black bow tie. Vest (black or white) or cummerbund finishes the suit.
Enjoy your 1920s party !
