Three Roaring Twenties Trends We’d Love to See Make a Comeback
By Tristan Whalen-Hughes
Extravagant parties and flapper fashion were just a couple of the trends that made the 1920’s so remarkable. While we’re off to a bit of a rough start with this century’s 20’s, once the COVID-19 pandemic dies down, there will undoubtedly be a rash of social events to make up for lost time. Planning for weddings, parties, festivals, and conferences is already in full swing for 2022 and beyond. Below are a few of the iconic 1920’s styles that we would love to see make a comeback in the new, roaring 2020’s.
As a band that plays all genres of music, jazz and swing included, we love to see people take to the dance floor and have fun while we perform. Originating in the 1920’s, the various forms of dancing that evolved with jazz and swing music (Charleston, Lindy Hop, etc.) are simple yet fun ways to enjoy a classic party sound. Whether you’re just getting the hang of the basic moves, or practicing your lifts and aerials, we encourage any and all dancers to strut their stuff to a great live band.
The Art Deco style was the epitome of luxury and modernity in the 1920’s. From its high grade, expensive materials, to the exquisite craftsmanship that marked its quality, this style of visual and architectural design perfectly accompanied the glamour of the Roaring 20’s. A well-designed and decorated space can make or break an event and we’d love to see Art Deco make a comeback with more venues and decorators.
Ladies’ flapper fashion is usually the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of “1920’s fashion”, but one style that we are dying to see more often this decade is the tuxedo. While still a staple of black tie events today, this men’s style dinner jacket, with its sleek black lines and elegant lapels, simply screams “fancy”. A man in a well-tailored tux is guaranteed to turn heads at any party.
So what are you waiting for? Dates for 2022 are booking up fast! Hopefully these Roaring 20’s trends can inspire you to plan an event that would put even The Great Gatsby to shame.
