1920's Shoes and Accessories

This is the era of long necklaces, dangling earrings and geometric lines in jewellery, art deco rings, egyptian revival bracelets, necklaces and earrings, art deco enamels, pearls and beaded necklaces (especially layered) were the most stylish of accessories, silk or rayon stockings and cloche hats (fitted bell shaped hat) were in vogue, flapper head bands which were usually made of sequin with ostrich feathers or beaded, feather boa's, full finger gloves in satin, fingerless gloves in mesh/stocking material (usually black). fabric headbands, pins, rings, and brooches were also a big hit. Add a modern twist by using thin chains as a draping head band. Mary janes and T bar strap shoes were all the rage in the shoe department.
