When thinking of pre-war 20th century fashion, perhaps the most iconic trend in womenswear was flapper style, taking a daring new edge into the mainstream. With most high street interpretations leaning on often costumey fringed dresses, this Beaded Flapper Dress from ASOS SALON is miles ahead of the pack.
Taken from their vintage inspired SALON range, this twenties styled piece takes inspiration from Art Deco structure in the lines and shapes of both the beading pattern and dress cut. With a drop waist and loose fit to create the androgyny, the daring aspect of flapper style is taken care of by a cut out back and luxurious beading throughout.
It's available now from ASOS online for £180.

If you fancy getting pampered in 1950s style and are London way, you may be interested in paying a visit to The Powder Room. The salon is a base for the Powderpuff Girls who are a frequent sight at the capital's most stylish parties in their glamorous retro pink uniforms, offering on the spot manicures and make-up.
The recently opened salon is based on Columbia Road, East London and is as beautifully decorated and styled as its make-up artists, decked out in full '50s style. It offers an experience worthy of any wannabe vintage Hollywood starlets with a wide range of services and a variety of party packages. Prices start at £10 for a false eyelashes application.
