What do i wear for a 1920’s theme picture?

It’s my senior theme picture for the yearbook. Our theme is the 1920’s. I know that the roaring 20’s style were like cloches, and flapper attire for women. But a class like 10 years ago did a gangster, flapper theme. So our teacher wants the girls to dress different, sort of like bonnie from bonnie and clyde..or just like an ordinary 1920’s woman. So i’m not sure how to dress…Please HELP!! Thank you so much!!!

    Wear A Pencil Skirt that hugs your curves with a ruffled blouse. Do finger waves for your hair and red lipstick!

    Well an ordinary 1920’s women would wear dresses. Like the Victorian ones. But you could still just do a simple flapper style dress if you wanted to. Maybe get a fake pearl necklace and a broach to wear. Those were popular then. Hats were also popular, but it would be hard to find a hat that would work for your theme.

    Here is a picture of Bonnie and Clyde I hope this helps.

    Bonnie and Clyde were robbers. Chanel was making her mark on the world of fashion at the time, and more form fitting, but casual and practical fashions were the vogue. Also details closely related to Chanel, like a string of pearls, two tone pumps, ect. Do a little research on her. Short bobs were in and I think certain hats. A flapper is always cute. I almost bought a flapper dress at H&M like a month ago. It was super cute.

    Lots of hats, strappy kitten heel shoes, knee-length skirts, long overcoats, stockings/bare legs… clothes had an almost masculine, squared-off shape. Shift dresses with little to no waisline were common. Here are some pictures that might help you visualize the style:

    Think Chanel meets The Great Gatsby.
