From 1920 until 1933 the US banned the sale of booze and inadvertently created an era of the wildest underground parties. Recreate the heady era for your own pub party with some fabulous costumes, great cocktails and all out glamour.

1920's style girls
  • For the girls think drop waists, sequins, and tassels. The flapper girl was the original party girl and the flapper dress the perfect party outfit. Accessorise with long beads, pin curls, feathers, fur and crystal headbands to turn even a plain outfit into a 1920s dream.

  • The 1920s gent was very dapper indeed. Whether you take your inspiration from the Peaky Blinders, Downton Abbey or Boardwalk Empire make sure it’s a three-piece suit. Choose between a bow tie or normal tie, and add braces to complete the perfect 1920s look.

  • Round the look of perfectly with a hat – choose from a trilby, fedora, boater or flat cap. And if you are really dedicated – how about a big moustache to finish the look?!
  • 1920s-moustach
  • Don’t forget, it’s the jazz age, so get your charleston shoes on and get boogying! And make the drink in your hand a cocktail, with rum and gin prohibition favourites.
