Friday Photo Swoon – Sweeping Lines, Towering Design

1920s Flapper #vintage #deco #20s #1920s #fashion #flapper

Art Deco "debuted" in the 1920s and was quite the contrast from the previous era of Art Nouveau. Deco styles featured bold geometric shapes while the previous Nouveau period was known for organic designs that incorporated the natural environment. Granted, these two periods overlapped and you will see many examples of both styles within the same art/fashion/what have you. Today however, in anticipation of this weekend's Sunday Snag, I wanted to bring you a collection of strongly Deco images. Don't they just make you feel empowered and strong?! Enjoy!

  1. Happy Friday to you! That first photo is just amazing! And oh, how I wish I looked good in hats, when looking at these photos. :) I wish you a great day!

  4. I absolutely ADORE the style from the 20s: the makeup, the decor, the dancing, the fabulousness, the makeup and especially, Art Deco.

    Great photos!

  5. Fab photos. The geometric designs in the images and clothing are so striking. I love it. Definately some great design inspiration.


  6. Gorgeous!i love them all :) where do you find these stunning images??

  7. I really like blog posts like this that educate readers on a certain fashion time period. I once saw a collection of Art Deco posters/cards at a vintage shop and I still regret not getting them--they were so beautiful!


  8. Goodness, the 1920s really did know how to make the most out of looks that (in comparison to decades past) were, on the surface, often far more simplistic, yet no less glamorous. Simply different, evolving, and so very appealing.
